Our Purpose and Core Values...
We are a worshiping church that delights in following our Lord Jesus and we rejoice in all He is and has done for us in bringing us to Himself through His death and resurrection. (Psalm 34:1-3)
We study God’s Word, the Bible, to know Him better and to have our lives reflect His character. Our deepening knowledge of our God takes place privately, in groups, and in our weekly gatherings. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We are a family, providing a sense of love, acceptance, and belonging to all who visit and attend our gatherings. We delight in encouraging one another in following the Lord. (Ephesians 4:15-16)
We serve one another and our neighbours through using our spiritual gifts from the Lord Jesus Christ and by caring with His love. (1 Peter 4:10)
Our multi-ethnicity demonstrates that our standing in Christ Jesus has no distinction based on race or gender. We walk together in loving unity in our Lord. (Galatians 3:28)
We want to grow in our capacity to serve and in our character so we are always becoming more like our Lord. (Colossians 1:28)
Our fellowship is primarily for English and German speakers who long to serve the international community of Vienna and see them come to know our Lord Jesus Christ. (John 17:3)
We live, pray, and give as fellow workers with the Lord in His work in Vienna and the world. We regularly send out our members to serve Him in His harvest fields. (1 Corinthians 3:9, Matthew 28:18-20)
