Our Vision

HOPE Berlin wants to influence the culture of our city by reaching out to its big majority of unchurched, gospel-uprooted people and building a creative, attractive church. A city that has received over decades so much support can become a city that gives to others – we go from HOPE for Berlin to HOPE from Berlin.

Cities are gaining in importance. Until the year 2050 approximately 70 percent of world population will live in cities. Cities are important to God: the bible history will peak in a big city that God himself is building.

As it is important to strengthen and build churches all over Germany we deliberately want to build a new dynamic and life-giving church in one of the most influential metropoles in the world.

In a city, in which many people have lost their hope and where Berlin is known as the „capitol of depression“ we want to give true HOPE. In a city that has written so much history we want to add new chapters and shape its culture anew.

We believe that Church will get a new meaning and impact in Berlin as we tell the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that will add purpose and hope to the precious people living here.

And then HOPE Berlin will not only mean HOPE for Berlin but HOPE going out from Berlin.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jermiah 29:11

Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you ….. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.
Jermiah 29:7

We see a passionate creative church

  • that is lots of fun and celebrates the life God has given us
  • a place, where people of every age and background find a real home, love and celebrate God
  • a home for family-life – where we do life together and get inspired to a great bible-based life with a loving father in heaven

We see a Christ-centered church for all of Berlin

  • full of life, joy and the dynamic of the Holy Spirit
  • that is inclusive and welcoming people, leading them to Jesus and helping them
    • to mature in faith
    • taking responsibilty and growing in leadership
    • and making a difference in all walks of life

How do we want to build this church?

  • We understand our mandate as partnership with God – we do have a commission and responsibility as faithful stewards – and God wants to guide and bless us on the way – and that means: we pray, plan and go next steps – but God makes things
    grow – 1.Cor.3.6-7
  • Berlin is shaped through its unique history to be multi-layerd and diverse – since we want to be a church for all of Berlin that means: we will build at least 1 campus in every district of Berlin to catch up with its population and live up to their specific needs and cultures
  • we want to be near to the people living in the different districts – a neighborhood church
  • our goal is not only to build what we like but what will help them to become a part of our vision for Berlin
  • we want to build a family atmosphere to say: „WELCOME home – you belong here“
