We believe in God

We believe that God exists even when He is invisable for us. Despite all rumors, preferences and atheistic ideologies He is a good and loving father who created us thoughtfully and loves us unconditionally. He is tangible and personal. All it needs is a heartfelt prayer from your inner being. He knows everyone of us personally – and He knows you.

YOU ARE IMPORTANT TO HIM. HE LOVES YOU:

We believe in Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ actually lived. He was much more than a good man or prophet. He was – and is – the Son of God who became man for mankind and showed us how much we are loved. He took on all the guild of humanity – even yours – He voluntary carried all the judgement we deserved on himself because He loves us. Through Him we now can be delivered and redeemed from all guilt and bondage. The bible tells us, that when we confess our sins before Him, ask Him for forgiveness, and believe in our hearts that He rose from the dead and is alive now we will be saved. There is no guilt to heavy, no situation to hopeless for Him!

We believe in the Holy Spirit

We belive in the reality of the power of the Holy Spirit. He is the one who fills everything related to God and the gospel with such a power and dynamic that signs and wonders can happen any time, people in bondages can be free and sick can be healed. He is here to help us and demonstrate christianity and the church being no religion but most real and life-giving. Nothing is impossible with God.

We believe in the Bible

We believe that the bible is more than a religious book. Although written by men its origin has been carefully supervised and monitored by God himself. The bible is trustworthy. Through it heaven can speak to us and show us the best way for each and every situation. Out of it we take comfort, encouragement and faith for the walks of life. Reading the bible helps us to receive great ideas and conceptions for our life and grow inwardly. It helps us to realise how God is an thinks. Bible’s treasures open up for us through a God-given faith that He is more than willing to share with you.

We believe in the Church

We belive in the significance of the church. And by that we mean more than a building with a bell tower. Church is the invisible, Holy-Spirit created connection of people sharing a united, likewise faith in Jesus Christ and taking responsibility for each other. It is characterized and shaped from the bible’s great command: Love your God with all your heart and your neighbor as yourself. We believe in the importance of coming together regularly in order to celebrate our heavenly father. Our events are filled with fun, friendships, joy, modern music and close to everyday life, grasping preachings. Visit us and see first-hand! You will be surprised how good church can be!

Our meetings and events are taking place in appartments, coffee bars or restaurants at the moment. The last – due to location or occasion – between 1-2 hours. Thereby we put value on easy talks, communication, time for hang-outs and building friendships. We eat meals together and spend time encouraging each other through short true-to-life messages of faith, prayer and modern music. Our events are deliberately styled in presentation and contents to make unchurched visitors feel easy and welcomed home. We believe that church is all about people and not the other way around.
