In your eyes by Peter Gabriel contains the following verse:

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway (in your eyes) to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution (in your eyes) of all the fruitless searches

What is the "doorway to a thousand churches" referring to? Also, is the author trying to connect churches with the fruitless searches (i.e. he found something in the subject of the song that he couldn't find in church)?

In my opinion, this song is all about the singer finally finding love.

So, 'In your eyes, I am complete'and 'The resolution of a thousand fruitless searches' refer to that the singer has tried (and failed) to find love before (a thousand fruitless searches) but, in this case, has suceeded.

So, the end of a successful search for love can be represented by a door to a church and the hints that a wedding is going to happen.
