A Church in a state of flux (Part 1)

It is a country of superlatives—also for the New Apostolic Church. It is also a country of striking contrasts between rural and urban Africa: the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Here are some insights from a District Apostle whose best bet is often a motorbike.

Don’t forget heaven!

The transfiguration of the Lord is a revelatory event in the beginnings of the church. It leads Christians into a supernatural dimension and wants to tell them: there are goals worth striving for even outside of your daily lives. Don’t just seek to reach your earthly goals; remember heaven.

“It comes down to our willingness.”

Only if we ourselves forgive can we receive grace. Really? But what if you really are not able to forgive a terrible deed that has been done to you? This video excerpt provides an answer from a divine service by the Chief Apostle.

There is no such thing as too small

A good deed is never too small. “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” Small examples from the big wide world.

Christians by profession

What are you by profession? A question that is posed quite often. Competence and expertise are called for here. But how is it in our faith? Do we not also need a certain kind of aptitude in order to be perceived as Christians?

How to be serious about loving your enemy

Loving your enemy? Impossible! Or is it? And who really has enemies anymore anyway? Everyone does! The Chief Apostle makes this clear—and demonstrates how it is possible to love one’s enemies. A divine service with more than one “Aha” moment.

At home around the world: what an old harmonium can tell you…

“Carl Wilhelm Louis Preuss is an outstanding personage in our Church,” emphasised District Apostle Rüdiger Krause in response to a question about him. In his time, Preuss was the Apostle from Hamburg—a courageous anchor in a stormy sea. Today is the 140th anniversary of his death.

Put on tender mercies: from tunics of skin to robes of white

On the stage and in the studio—diversity sets the tone

When faith creates music, it will be in more than one key! The “Show Your Talent” song contest already proved that quite clearly at the International Church Convention 2014. Now a new edition is scheduled for the IYC 2019. The call going out to young musicians today is: “Show us what you’ve got!”
