Enjoy Life – Love God – Make a Difference
We believe that every generation is challenged to creatively translate and express the unchangeable Word of God in its own society and culture.
The Bible is a book that holds an explosive message (Rom1,16) that still contains its power and speaks to our modern day lives. If traditions or religious mindsets hinder us from discovering these treasures, we should consider changing them or having the courage to put them aside.
What should a church look like in our time? How can it be meaningful and accessible for the people in our city and our nation today? In 2009 we started this journey and we see it as an ongoing process…
We defined three pillars to navigate our Fellowship through this adventure:

We have a real heart to see people changed by the love of God, by the truth of His Word and the presence of His Holy Spirit.

Jesus was in many ways different from the people of his time. It seemed as if he followed a very different agenda. He swam against the stream of his time and he did what he believed was right. Some people call him a “beautiful outlaw” because of that. The word of God challenges us not to conform to the pattern of this world, but to be transformed but the renewing of our mind (Rom 12,2). We are called to make a difference, to be light in a cold and self centered world. History has proven it again and again that cities and nations can be changed for Gods glory by the courage and faith of simple men and women. Let’s be part of it …
