Visit the Seven Churches of Revelation in Turkey with Maranatha Tours!
Turkey's Seven Churches of Revelation, also known as the Seven Churches of the Apocalypse or the Seven Churches of Asia, are all major churches mentioned in the Book of Revelations in the New Testament. These sites of early Christian history are all stops on a Maranatha tour of Turkey!
"What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamum, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea."
- Revelation 1:11
In Revelations 2 and 3, the Lord instructs a specific message be written to each of the Seven Churches, commanding that "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." When you take your trip to Turkey with Maranatha Tours, keep these promises in mind at each site you visit!
