"Counting to Zero:
We want every child to hear Gods word every week!"
Now that's a big vision. But we don't see a reason why there should be one single child that does not hear about the love and power of God every week. This is what we all work towards. Children are precious and loved by God. We meet them where they are and invest into their lives: childlike, practical and relatable. That way we can build a foundation for hope, future and a responsible live.
LOVE ONE ANOTHER - God’s love is our motivation in all we do. The Bible builds the foundation of our action. We believe that God loves every individual and wants us to show his love by helping each other.
WORK TOGETHER - We are convinced that we can achieve more together than we can by ourselves. This is why our organization is structured horizontally and why we foster a spirit of serving others amongst our leaders, internally. Externally, we collaborate with various organizations and churches. Hope Clubs take place in close cooperation with local communities. We can only make the world a better place when we work together.
MAKE A LASTING DIFFERENCE - We enable others to effect change in their environments. All of our programs are oriented towards continuity. Instead of emphasizing large, singular events, we focus on training and empowering those who are already active locally. Those on the ground master the language and culture and will be able to foster connections with the reached families in the long-run.
What we believe
Our Believe in Jesus is the foundation and motivation for everything that we do. More...
GOD - We believe in the eternally existing triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who made all things. His love to all humans is consistent, unchanging and possible to be experienced by anybody.
JESUS - We believe that Jesus Christ is God´s son. Through his death and resurrection, we can have a relationship with God and an access to eternal life.
BIBLE - We believe that the Bible is God´s word for us, through which he shows himself to every person. It is the foundation for our Christian living and a guide in every life decision.
HOPE - We believe that salvation is only possible through grace and not through our own actions. Everyone who decides for a life with God receives it freely. This hope shows itself in the assurance that God cares for us, even in hard time.
COMMUNITY - We believe in the spiritual unity of believers. We believe that Christians are called as God´s followers and are meant to maintain good works as a testimony of their faith. It leads to a responsibility to share the message of Jesus, to invest into people in need and living a life according to Biblical standards.
CONFIDENCE - We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ and that every person who made a personal decision of faith will have eternal community with God.
