About Us

OUR VISION

 

Experiencing God – moving people
We are building a church for our city, a spiritual home, where everyone finds and develops a passion for Jesus and his or her place in god’s plan for the world.

 

We are building a church that is contemporary, true-to-life and relevant. We believe: The beginning of a life as a Christian is marked by the personal encounter with god. Otherwise everything als remains knowledge, education and tradition. It is the purpose of the church to make the gospel comprehensible and to worship god in a way that is easy to access for everyone. Living with god is inspirational, liberating and full of hope. We dream of providing a spiritual home to people of all ages and origins. Where they can be with god and part of a strong community. We dream of people being moved and discovering the life for which they were created. We dream of people becoming a bridge to god for other people, people who can not stop talking about this god who became man in Christ and gave everything for us.

 

OUR VALUES

 

Our values are our DNA, the inner constructions plan of the church. They describe how we do, what we do. Every part of our personal and our church life shall reflect them. We desire those values to be perceptible in our church and that the people in our church live them.
