De We should read and study the Bible because it is God's Word to us. The Bible is literally "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). In other words, it is God's very words to us. There are so many questions that philosophers have asked that God answers for us in Scripture. What is the purpose to life? Where did I come from? Is there life after death? How do I get to heaven? Why is the world full of evil? Why do I struggle to do good? In addition to these "big" questions, the Bible gives much practical advice in areas such as: What do I look for in a mate? How can I have a successful marriage? How can I be a good friend? How can I be a good parent? What is success and how do I achieve it? How can I change? What really matters in life? How can I live so that I do not look back with regret? How can I handle the unfair circumstances and bad events of life victoriously?

What kind of work do the Protestant Churches in the Netherlands and the Roman Catholic Churches ?
The churches together have about many congregations and many ministers and volunteers. Many congregations celebrates a church service every Sunday. During the week there are all kinds of activities, from youth work to catechism classes for adults and non-believers. Also, for instance, volunteers work in a walk-in centre for homeless people, the choir practises, the youth club and mission work... In my country there are many ways in which congregations express their identity as a church.
Every Sunday there is a church service lasting about an hour,
everything this involves: singing, praying, giving thanks, collections,
and a sermon, Many congregations have special activities for children
and young- and old people. During the church services there is a creche
tor babies and toddlers. In some congregations there is a children's
service tor children at primary school age. The children start and end
in church, but in a separate room they hear a Bible story told
specially tor them. In other congregations there is Sunday school after
church. Regularly the congregation celebrates the Lord's Supper, where
they commemorate with bread and wine what the crucifixion and
resurrection of Jesus means to them. In some congregations children can
also take part. This is the case in many congregation. In both the
prayers and the sermon the congregation shows its close involvement
with the distressed near by and far away, sick people in the
congregation, but also war victims, street children, the poor and those
without rights throughout the world.
Catechism classes, seminars, workshops and discussion groups
Weekdays in the evenings there are various discussion groups
those who want to know more about the Bible and faith. A wide variety
of subjects is discussed. The congregation members do not all believe
in the same things and in the same way. This sometimes gives rise to
emotions and tensions. There are, for instance, different views on
women in office, euthanasia, the doctrine of atonement, same-sex
marriages. Nevertheless, the church hope that theirwelcome
congregations will continue to talk with each other and see each other
as 'brothers and sisters'. For young people there are catechism groups,
where they are prepared for their confession of faith: someone declares
in the midst of the congregation that she or he chooses God and wants
to be a full congregation member. Unfortunately, many young people no
longer go to church: they do not feel at home there. It is one of the
concerns of the church.
Working for others
A congregation does not exist for itself. Both the local and
national churches offer financial and other practical help to people
inside and outside the congregation. This help varies from a present
for the elderly at Christmas, to working with drug addicts, and
Jesus Christ Is LORD
Jesus said: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30) welcome
I want you know that these prayers will give Jesus a chance at your heart right now! HE loves you and this may seem like an odd way to ask HIM into your heart but this is only between you and Jesus Christ. HE is well aware you are looking at this page right now. And rejoicing at the chance to show you HIS love. How is HE able to know everything? Lets just say He is much bigger then us, and we often try to put God in a box, we configure a man made image of God and some people even say to me "how can God do that?" He's GOD and perfectly capable at doing anything. When you feel His love start burning in your heart He will cleanse you and fill you with His power, which really is His love. My prayer is that this page become a blessing to you, it seems simple and it is. I myself accepted Jesus Christ into my heart in this manner and I know it works.
To Receive Jesus as Your Lord and Savior Here is what to pray right now:
Dear Heavenly Father, it is written in Your Word that if I confess with my mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in my heart that You have raised Him from the dead, I shall be saved. Therefore, Father, I confess that Jesus is my Lord, I make Him Lord of my life right now. I believe in my heart that You raised Jesus from the dead. Please forgive me for all my sins known and unknown. I now forgive everyone in my life that has ever hurt me or disappointed me in anyway, that I may receive your full forgiveness. I renounce my past life with Satan and close the door to any of his devices. Jesus come into my heart, lead me and guide me. And LORD please send me the promise of the free gift of the Holy Spirit to comfort me and empower me to overcome sin.
I thank You for forgiving me of all my sin. Jesus is my Lord, and I am a new creation. Old things have passed away. Now all things become new in Jesus' mighty name.

Lord, I have received Your Son, and He has given me authority (power, privilege, and right) to become Your child.
I unfold my past and put into proper perspective those things that are behind. I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me. I trust in You, Lord, with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding. In all my ways I acknowledge You, and you will make my paths straight.
I want to know Christ and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. So, whatever it takes, I will be one who lives in the flesh newness of life of those who are alive from the dead.
I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: regardless of my past I look forward to what lies ahead. I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which You are calling me up to Heaven because of what Christ Jesus did for me.
In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
Walk in Forgiveness
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I make a fresh commitment to You to live in peace and harmony, not only with the other brothers and sisters of the Body of Christ, but also with my friends, associates, neighbors and family.
I let go of all bitterness, resentment, envying, strife and unkindness in any form. I give no place to Satan in Jesus' name. Now Father, I ask Your forgiveness. By faith, I receive it, having assurance that I am cleansed from all unrighteousness through Jesus Christ. I ask You to forgive and release all who have wronged and hurt me. I forgive and release them. Deal with them in your mercy and loving-kindness.
From this moment on, I purpose to walk in love, to seek peace, to live in agreement, and to conduct myself toward others in a manner that is pleasing to You. I know that I have right standing with You and Your ears are attentive to my prayers.
It is written in your Word that the love of God has been poured forth into my heart by the holy Ghost Who is given to me. I believe that love flows into the lives of everyone I know, that I may be filled with and abound in the fruits of righteousness which bring glory and honor unto You, Lord, in Jesus' name. So be it! Amen.

After you know Jesus is now working in your heart it is important you continue to seek Him. Seek Him in His word, before you read the word of God pray to your Father for understanding. Seek Him in prayer often! Attending a Christain Church is important because you need prayer and to be fed the word of God.. You must seek as much prayer as you can get, and prayer for yourself and others. Finding a good church is very difficult these days, be very careful what church you chose.
Basis of our beliefs
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God's infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks.
We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our movement, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.
There is one true God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - each of whom possesses equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
Jesus Christ is God, the living Word, who became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. Hence, He is perfect Deity and true humanity united in one person forever.
He lived a sinless life and voluntarily atoned for the sins of men by dying on the cross as their substitute, thus satisfying divine justice and accomplishing salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
He rose from the dead in the same body, though glorified, in which He lived and died.
He ascended bodily into heaven and sat down at the right hand
the Father, where He, the only mediator between God and man,
continually makes intercession for His own.
Man was originally created in the image of God. He sinned by disobeying God; thus, he was alienated from his Creator. That historic fall brought all mankind under divine condemnation. welcome
Man's nature is corrupted, and he is thus totally unable to
God. Every man is in need of regeneration and renewal by the Holy
The salvation of man is wholly a work of God's free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justified them in His sight.
It is the privilege of all who are born again of the Spirit to be assured of their salvation from the very moment in which they trust Christ as their Savior. This assurance is not based upon any kind of human merit, but is produced by the witness of the Holy Spirit, who confirms in the believer the testimony of God in His written word.
The Holy Spirit has come into the world to reveal and glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to men. He convicts and draws sinners to Christ, imparts new life to them, continually indwells them from the moment of spiritual birth and seals them until the day of redemption. His fullness, power and control are appropriated in the believer's life by faith.
Every believer is called to live so in the power of the
Spirit that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear
fruit to the glory of God.
Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, His Body, which is composed of all men, living and dead, who have been joined to Him through saving faith.
God admonishes His people to assemble together regularly for worship, for participation in ordinances, for edification through the Scriptures and for mutual encouragement.
At physical death the believer enters immediately into eternal, conscious fellowship with the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting glory and blessing.
At physical death the unbeliever enters immediately into eternal, conscious separation from the Lord and awaits the resurrection of his body to everlasting judgment and condemnation.
Jesus Christ will come again to the earth - personally, visibly and bodily - to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
The Lord Jesus Christ commanded all believers to proclaim the
throughout the world and to disciple men of every nation. The
fulfillment of that Great Commission requires that all worldly and
personal ambitions be subordinated to a total commitment to "Him who
loved us and gave Himself for us."
Read the he good news for you here Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations (Psalm 100)
Christian Holy Days
When: Sunday before Easter
Observance: Jesus' entry intoJerusalem
Biblical reference: Matthew 21:1–11
Christians observe Palm Sunday on the Sunday before Easter, celebrating Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The reason they call it Palm Sunday stems from the fact that when Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, a large crowd of people in the city spread out palm branches on the ground before him as a sign of his kingship. Throughout Jesus' three-year ministry, he downplayed his role as Messiah and sometimes even told people whom he healed not to say anything about the miracle to others. Palm Sunday is the one exception in which his followers loudly proclaimed his glory to all.
Today, Christians often celebrate Palm Sunday in a joyous, triumphant manner during worship services, emphasizing the glory of Jesus Christ. Some churches spread palm branches at the front of the sanctuary as a way to commemorate the event.
When: Thursday before Easter
Observance: The Last Supper of Jesus
Biblical reference: John 13–17
Within the midst of the Easter season, Maundy Thursday is one Christian holy day that many Christians and even many churches often overlook, yet it symbolizes a critically important truth of the Christian faith — Jesus as a suffering servant and the call for his followers to do the same. It also draws a connection between the Passover sacrifice, a Jewish tradition, and Jesus Christ's sacrificial role on the cross.
The night before Jesus was crucified, he had a Passover supper with his disciples. (Passover is a Jewish holy day that celebrates God's deliverance of the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt.) After supper, Jesus knew that this would be his final opportunity to instruct his disciples before the crucifixion, so he talked at length about his purposes, what his followers should do in response, and the promise of the Holy Spirit to come. He then washed his disciples' feet in an incredible demonstration of humility and servanthood. Finally, he gave bread and wine to his disciples and asked them to partake of it in remembrance of him. The act of partaking bread and wine is called Communion (or the Last Supper) today.
The word Maundy (pronounced mawn-dee) comes from the Latin word mandatum, which means "command." The command that this holy day refers to is the one that Jesus gave to his disciples during the Last Supper:
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, just like I have loved you; that you also love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
— John 13:34–35
When: Friday before Easter
Observance: Crucifixion of Jesus on the cross
Biblical reference: Luke 23
Good Friday marks the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for the sins of the world. Good Friday isn't a happy day, but its name is a reminder that humans can only be considered good because of what happened on that day. Some believe that its name was originally God's Friday, which, over the years, became its present name. In Germany, Christians call it Quiet Friday (from noon on Friday until Easter morning, church bells remain silent). Christians in other parts of Europe call it Great Friday or Holy Friday.
Good Friday is a day of mourning and sorrow over the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ and a reminder that the sins of all people made it necessary for him to die in the first place. It's also a day of gratitude for the supreme sacrifice that he made.
Protestant churches sometimes hold services between noon and 3:00 p.m. to commemorate Jesus' hours on the cross. Catholics often remove everything from the altar and kiss the crucifix as an expression of worship. Some churches even hold a Service of Darkness in which candles are extinguished until people are left sitting in total darkness, as a reminder of the darkness that covered the earth after Jesus died (Luke 23:44–46).
When: First Sunday after the first full moon after March 21
Observance: Resurrection of Jesus Christ
Biblical reference: Luke 24
Bar none, Easter is the single most important holy day of the Christian Church, for it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the central event in Christianity. To Christians, the resurrection backs up Jesus' claim that he had the authority to die for the sins of the world and the power to come back to life again. It also gives hope to Christians that they too will experience a resurrected life in heaven.
The exact day of the year that Easter falls on is very confusing, and the logic seems pretty old-fashioned in this digital age, because it's based on the lunar calendar and tied to the start of the solar spring. But the Western Church (Catholic and Protestant) continues to observe it based on the rules of long ago — that it falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after March 21. It can't come before March 22 or after April 25. In contrast, Orthodox Churches wanted to tie Easter to Jewish Passover, given the relationship between Passover and the day of Christ's resurrection. Because the Jewish calendar determines the date that Jews celebrate Passover, Easter for the Orthodox Churches can vary by as much as five weeks from the Western Church.
When: 40 days after Easter
Observance: Coming of the Holy Spirit
Biblical reference: Acts 2
Originally, Pentecost was a Jewish holiday held 50 days after Passover. One of three major feasts during the Jewish year, it celebrated Thanksgiving for harvested crops. However, Pentecost for Christians means something far different. Before Jesus was crucified, he told his disciples that the Holy Spirit would come after him (see John 14:16). And 40 days after Jesus was resurrected (ten days after he ascended into heaven; see Luke 24:51), that promise was fulfilled when Peter and the early Church were in Jerusalem for Pentecost.
Although many North American Christians hardly notice Pentecost today, traditional European churches consider it a major feast day. Pentecost, also called Whitsuntide in parts of Europe, is just behind Easter in overall importance. For example, in Germany today on only three occasions does the observance of a national holiday span two days: Christmas (December 25 and 26), Easter (Sunday and Monday), and Pentecost (Sunday and Monday).
When: Period marked by the four Sundays before Christmas
Observance: Preparation for Christmas and Christ's Second Coming
Advent began in the early Church as a 40-day time of preparation and self-examination before Epiphany, a January holiday that observes the visit of the Magi to Jesus (by the Western, or Catholic and Protestant, Church) and the Baptism of Jesus (by the Eastern, or Orthodox, Church). During Advent, the Church welcomed new Christians into the Church to be baptized. Over the years, Advent was eventually tied to honoring Christ's birth and anticipating his Second Coming.
Advent started off as a time of solemn preparation like Lent, but by the fourth century, the season had evolved into a more celebratory occasion in the Western Church. In contrast, the Orthodox Church has always tended to observe Advent in a more reflective, somber manner.
The lighting of the Advent wreath is the most popular tradition performed during this season. An Advent wreath is a circle of evergreens with four candles, three of which are usually colored violet purple (symbolizing royalty in some churches and penance in others) and the fourth colored rose red or pink (representing the expectation that people have in the coming Messiah). One of the purple candles is lit during the service on the first Sunday (highlighting the theme of hope), a second the next Sunday (love), a third the next Sunday (joy), and the rose-colored candle on the final Sunday before Christmas (peace). Some wreaths also have a white candle (representing the purity and holiness of Jesus Christ) placed in the center, which Christians light on Christmas day.
The origin of the wreath started as a pre-Christian practice by Germanic peoples as a symbol of the hope of a coming spring. Christians kept the tradition but changed its meaning as they looked forward to Christ's return.
St. Francis of Assisi is credited as displaying the first Christmas nativity scene, a re-creation of the manger scene, during Advent in 1223.
When: December 25
Observance: Birth of Jesus Christ
Biblical reference: Luke 2:1–20
Christmas is the observance of Jesus' humble birth to a virgin in a stable in Bethlehem. The holiday also celebrates the events surrounding his birth, such as an angel's appearance to shepherds, telling them to visit the newborn king.
Although the Church doesn't consider it the most important Christian holiday, Christmas is certainly the most popular, at least in terms of cultural and social significance. But the early Church, believing that events later in Jesus' life should be the focus, didn't even consider it all that significant. What's more, when Church leaders first discussed observing the birthday of Jesus, some argued against celebrating it like you would another great person in history. Nonetheless, the Church had enough pro-observance support to mark the calendar.
Neither the New Testament nor any historical record marks the exact date of Jesus' birth. As a result, the Church initially considered many different dates, including January 2, March 21, March 25, April 18, April 19, May 20, May 28, November 17, and November 20. The Western Church first observed December 25 in the fourth century, and eventually Eastern Churches followed suit.
Some people criticize that Christmas has its origins as a pagan holiday. Some truth lies in that notion, considering that the timing of December 25 was selected to line up with several pagan Roman holidays that celebrated the winter solstice and worship of the sun. However, Church leaders didn't see matching the date as compromising Christian teaching with the culture. Responding to any criticism, a fourth-century bishop remarked, "We hold this day holy, not like the pagans because of the birth of the sun, but because of him who made it."
