Our vision is building a growing church that loves God and is united in friendship, as a foundation for discipleship, evangelization and church-planting in Germany and the nations.
In a few words: We want to encounter God, love people and strengthen churches.
Jesus Christ is the center point
Jesus is essential. He is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through him.
The Bible is our standard
The Bible is the word of God given to us. We do not want to take away from the Bible or add to it.
Relationship is more important than function
Because every person is valuable to God just as they are, we value people more than what they can do or contribute.
Our relationships with one another are the foundation for effective and motivated team work.
Release potential in every person
Every person should be able to grow in life according to his gifts, his personality and God’s will. This is what we want to focus our efforts upon.
Balance between large and small
Large events and small groups give us, members, as well as visitors, different opportunities to experience God.
Contemporary and relevant to our society
God’s message to us remains. We want to live according to that message and share it in today’s language and expression of our time.
Creativity is worth it
We want to meet people with creative ideas that attract and bring joy to them, as well as make those who are distanced from the church curious about our faith.
It is better to give than to receive
We are blessed to be a blessing. What we have, we want to share generously with others.
We need the diversity of all generations, a young heart and the wisdom that comes with age.
Willingness to risk
Faith requires courage to experience the new and unknown. You have to leave the harbor to reach new land. Therefore we need a sound mind and a couragous heart.
Enjoy the journey of life
We want to celebrate every day of our lives, not only our destination.
Jesus Gemeinde is a non-denominational Christian church. Our foundation is the Bible as God’s word. Here is what we believe based on that foundation:
