We believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ died for the reconciliation of the sins of the whole world. Through receiving Jesus as one’s personal Savior and Lord a person is born again in one’s inner being and receives forgiveness of sins and will have a share of eternal life.



We teach new believers to be baptized by immerse and seek for the Holy Spirit’s baptism which is filling with the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is vital to us and we strive for, with God’s grace, to live a practical life taught in the New Testament.


This concerns for instance the holiness of marriage, honesty and congregation life.


Important is the attitude of a heart which should be equally governed by grace and truth.


We consider the 1933/1938 Bible translation more accurate than the new 1992 translation so we use the former translation.


Also such Holy Spirit gifts as speaking in tongues, prophecy and healing the sick through prayer are important to us.

We believe in joyful but stable Christianity. We do not try to be old fashioned but apply modern work forms in the congregation if they are not in contradiction with the Bible or cause disunion among the believers.
