Introduction to the church

Our church was established in 2010 and is registered as: "Foundation Local Christian Church In Rotterdam, In Dutch: "Stichting Christelijke Gemeente in Rotterdam", as a Christian Organisation

Chamber Of Commerce Reg.number:24287898。

The church does not have any denominational background and does not use any form of organization or activity other than the bible. Christ is exalted as the head of the church and the words of the Bible as the authority in the Church. We strive for the personal growth of the brothers and sisters in Christ's life, and we actively prepare and await the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Apostles'Creed is the standard by which we distinguish heresy:

"I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son Our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God, the Father almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. "

  Our Faith

As the redeemed, saved by God's grace, we believe in, and hold fast to, the following:

  1. The whole Bible is the complete revelation of God. It is our supreme and final authority and guide in our life and work.
  2. The one and only true God is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, equal in honor and glory, the Triune God.
  3. God the Father is the beginning and the end of all. All things are from Him and through Him and to Him.
  4. God the Son is Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God the Father. He is our Lord. He is before all things. All things have been created by Him and for Him; in Him all things hold together. Compliant with God's will, He became flesh, born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified as a ransom for all mankind. He was buried, raised up bodily on the third day and then ascended into heaven. God the Father anointed Him as the Christ and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name. In the fullness of the times, God will sum up all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. He shall return in a glorious body to establish His kingdom on earth, ushering in the new heaven and the new earth in fulfillment of God's eternal purpose.
  5. After the resurrection and ascension of God the Son, the Holy Spirit was sent to earth by God the Father to convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment. All who believe in the Son are baptized in the Holy Spirit to become the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit is the Comforter of believers, to guide them into all the truth and to supply various spiritual gifts for the building up of the Church.
  6. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, but, because of their faith in God the Son who has accomplished salvation, they are redeemed by grace and justified.
  7. All who are saved by grace and baptized in the Holy Spirit are built up as the Church, which is the Body of Christ. They become members of the Body with Christ as their only Head. In accordance with the will of God, they gather together to worship, to pursue the truth and to serve in the Church, so that the Body of Christ may be built up to maturity to become the bride of Christ awaiting His return. The Church will be brought into the glory of Christ, and, together with Christ, will descend to the earth to establish the kingdom, thus ushering in the new heaven and the new earth to fulfill God's eternal purpose.
  8. We uphold the teaching of Biblical truth, reject all teachings and activities which do not adhere to God’s truth, and detach ourselves from any forms of political connection.
  9. We believe that Christ’s Body is one. All God’s children in the Body can fellowship with each other in Christ. Moreover, we affirm that Christ’s Body has only one Head, Christ being the only Head of the Church. We also firmly know that, before the Lord’s return, false Christs will appear on earth. We strongly hold fast to the Lord’s command and keep ourselves separate from all believers (or organizations) who in reality fail to uphold Christ as their Head. We shall not receive them into our fellowship in Christ’s Body.
  10. We acknowledge that it is inappropriate to uplift supernatural and strange experiences. We confirm only that Christ is all in all.
