We’re a group of Christians who love the Lord and His church. Individually and collectively we’re on a spiritual journey in which we are actively seeking God and His guidance for our lives.
We believe that God’s Word teaches, inspires and convicts us. We recognize that living a spiritually-minded life isn’t always the easiest, but it is the most rewarding and fulfilling life to live.
❤️Heart or 💪Habits?
We do not believe it is helpful to manage other peoples habits, to have them conform to our beliefs or to make others do things the way we think is "best". Our guidance is Jesus, who focussed on the heart instead. Practically this means that we help each other searching our hearts and not become the "spiritual police" that corrects others for the sake of conformity. This is one of the great freedoms we experience in Christ!
Here are a few of scriptures that guide us in this (amongst many others).
The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Our meetings are informal, multi-cultural and open to anyone interested in learning more about God and the Bible. Translation is available with the aid of professional equipment and there are various programs for professionals, singles, children, marrieds and students.
We are a unique church in Amsterdam that has a truly diverse membership. European, Middle Eastern, Indian, South American, African, Hispanic or Asian, whatever background you are from, you will feel right at home.
We’re also diverse in our life situations. Here you’ll find married couples, singles, college students, young people, older people, white-collar, blue-collar and stay-at-home moms. People who are involved in business start-ups, in education and also people who work for large internationals or at the local grocery store.
It may sound obvious—and many churches claim it—but for us the Bible is the center of everything we believe and do.
The Bible resolves the challenge of opinions and personal preferences, it helps us get to know God in a personal way and teaches us to love like Jesus did.
Using the Bible as our standard for relationships means we can see the results and test them as well. It brings us closer together with God as well as each oher.
We are a small - growing - group of visionary people who are part of a family of churches world wide who support each other.
“Small” means that we have quality time together and will make every effort to keep it that way. We believe in inspiring relationships and individual contributions.
“Big” means that we are in constant communication with other like minded churches and Christians all over the world. It also means that we see all disciples of Jesus world wide as the church and as our family.
We are one of the only truly diverse churches in the area with multi cultural and economic diversity. We have members who natively speak in all kinds of languages, from Dutch, French and English to Spanish and Arabic. Please come join us!
