Family of Christ Church
We believe in God the Father, the creator of heaven and earth, who so loved the world that He sent His son Jesus to save you and me. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God. God is our Father when we believe in Jesus as our Savior. We believe in the Holy Spirit of God, the third person of God, who came to serve the congregation and lead congregation members to maturity. We do not want to limit the Holy Spirit, because He is God.
We believe in the gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit. We believe that in the Bible we find what God has to say to us and we want to encourage people to read, learn and meditate on the Word. We find it very important to be a place in the city where the Lord is believed and worshiped. Music and singing plays an important role in our vision because we believe that God's Spirit is invited when we praise and praise and worship Him. We want to be a place where people find hope and peace in life. We believe that God is changing people so that they are redeemed and delivered from everything that hinders them.
Vision Family of Christ Church
We place relationships
activities, faith in
God above human
Our desire is to become a big church where many find Christ as their savior, where people can grow up in the faith and become disciples of Jesus. We long to be a congregation where people help and love each other, accept and build each other. We want to be a multicultural community where everyone is appreciated. We follow the Great Commission of Jesus Christ: Matheus 28: 18b - 20 "
All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you."
We want to be a congregation that has an impact on the city. We want to spend enough time on prayer so that God will come into action and many people in this city will come to faith through the work of the Holy Spirit. We want to reach unbelievers with the gospel. We want to help those in need and provide pastoral care to the people who need it.
Praise unites people
and lifts up the Lord God. Worship brings people into the presence of God, focuses their eyes upon Jesus, brings the power of the Holy Spirit.
We are a community with impact by holding worship services on Sunday mornings and by holding prayer services and training. We are going to train and encourage people to keep bible groups so that other people can join a group where they feel at home. These are home groups where non-believers can also be invited to informal and hospitable meetings. We want to organize activities for children so that they can come into contact with the gospel and we will also get in touch with their family members. We want to be present in the neighborhood with love, passion and compassion. We want to build relationships with the people who live in Haarlem in our neighborhood so that they can get to know Jesus Christ.
The first church from acts as a model:
What appeals to us in the first Christian church is mutual communion, persevering prayer, unity and evangelism and the powerful working of God's Holy Spirit. We believe in baptism by immersion after conversion as a personal decision for the Lord Jesus.
