We affirm that truth is conveyed by Scripture. We are part of Gods household, sons and daughters, the Bride of Christ, from different countries partnering with God in this world to take care of the earth and its people, and impact our communities with the life-changing message (Good News) of the gospel about Jesus Christ.
These movements have led to the easy abandonment of both biblical truth and the transformed living mandated by our historic faith. This good news is biblical (his death and resurrection are according to the Scriptures), theological and salvific (Christ died for our sins, to reconcile us to God), historical (if the saving events did not happen, our faith is worthless, we are still in our sins, and we are to be pitied more than all others), apostolic (the message was entrusted to and transmitted by the apostles, who were witnesses of these saving events), and intensely personal (where it is received, believed, and held firmly, individual persons are saved). Ask any questions - search to find God's wil for your life.

We do all of this because the gospel of God leads us to it, even while we recognize that the ultimate restoration of all things awaits the personal and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ (CS). Instead of calling people to individual conversion through a message of grace, people are called to join the Christian community and kingdom program of what God is doing to liberate the world. Men and women, equally made in the image of God, enjoy equal access to God by faith in Christ Jesus and are both called to move beyond passive self-indulgence to significant private and public engagement in family, church, and civic life. Agape Christian Church is a place of worship, a place where destiny and lives are discover and build by the ministry of the word of God and the ministry of the Holly Spirit, and a place where the unconditional love of God is supernaturally experience by all. Moreover, this God is a speaking God who by his Spirit has graciously disclosed himself in human words: we believe that God has inspired the words preserved in the Scriptures, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, which are both record and means of his saving work in the world. Inasmuch as Christ was given by the Father for us, and his obedience and punishment were accepted in place of our own, freely and not for anything in us, this justification is solely of free grace, in order that both the exact justice and the rich grace of God might be glorified in the justification of sinners.

The supreme need of all human beings is to be reconciled to the God under whose just and holy wrath we stand; the only hope of all human beings is the undeserved love of this same God, who alone can rescue us and restore us to himself. We desire to champion this gospel with clarity, compassion, courage, and joygladly linking hearts with fellow believers across denominational, ethnic, and class lines. God ordains that they assume distinctive roles which reflect the loving relationship between Christ and the church, the husband exercising headship in a way that displays the caring, sacrificial love of Christ, and the wife submitting to her husband in a way that models the love of the church for her Lord.

To read along the whole Bible is to discern the single basic plotline of the Bible as Gods story of redemption (e.g., Luke 24:44) as well as the themes of the Bible (e.g., covenant, kingship, temple) that run through every stage of history and every part of the canon, climaxing in Jesus Christ. It moves us to serve others irrespective of their merits, just as Christ served us (Mark 10:45). To eliminate the propositional nature of biblical truth seriously weakens our ability to hold, defend, and explain the gospel. The claim to objectivity is arrogant, postmodernism tells us, and inevitably leads to conflicts between communities with differing opinions as to where the truth lies. )If you are in the USA, you can make donations to the European Mission Society, through the button below: (Please provide a "comment" with your donation that it is for Amsterdam), The date you expect to make the donation :), Thank you for submitting your donation pledge!

He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and by his powerful and mysterious work regenerates spiritually dead sinners, awakening them to repentance and faith, and in him they are baptized into union with the Lord Jesus, such that they are justified before God by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
What replaces the gospel will never promote a mission-hearted faith anchored in enduring truth working itself out in unashamed discipleship eager to stand the tests of kingdom-calling and sacrifice. Christ wins our salvation through losing, achieves power through weakness and service, and comes to wealth through giving all away. And while, in Gods grace, there is an encouraging number of bright spots in the church, we see no broad movement yet of this gospelcentered ministry. Our meetings are meant to bring us closer to God and each other. Our desire is to serve the church we love by inviting all our brothers and sisters to join us in an effort to renew the contemporary church in the ancient gospel of Christ so that we truly speak and live for him in a way that clearly communicates to our age.
