Our Vision and Core values

Our Vision

 

We are a multicultural community reaching our neighborhood with the gospel.

 

Our Core Values
Experiencing God more
People from all nations, religions, life philosophies, and political backgrounds are warmly welcomed to personally experience the church of Jesus and understand His Gospel, though our lives, in fellowship and friendship with one another. Whether skeptical or searching, people who find their way to our church are free to disagree with our faith, provided they will respect our faith, just as we will theirs. We welcome each person with love and acceptance, and hope that through our weekly activites, as well as our church service, that each will experience the church of Jesus and His Gospel.
Celebrating Diversity more
We believe that reconciliation between all nations and friendships between foreigners and Germans can only be accomplished through the power of the cross. In all areas of our church life, we want to leave room for the enriching cultural distinctiveness of our various nationalities. We want to celebrate the rich gift of our multiculturalism as well as the special characteristics of each nation, as a preview of heaven.
Enjoying Community more
The centerpiece of our church life is the worship service, in which we collectively worship God, listen to His Word and celebrate communion. We give God the honor that He deserves, allowing ourselves to be changed through His beauty and truth, being built up and refreshed through our faith and life in Jesus.
Our worship is orderly and moderate, joyful and liturgically diverse. We make use of art, theater, and music. Through the use of various cultural styles and languages in the worship time (always in German), we celebrate the diversity of God’s peoples in the world.
Sharing Faith more
The proclamation and teaching from God’s Truth through God’s Word, the Bible, is central to our church life. God’s Word and Truth is the path to a daily personal experience in our relationship with Jesus. The Bible is our authority in these areas: the use of our spiritual gifts, life together, our experience with the supernatural, a guide for our relationships, our moral behavior and every day decisions.
