What is LGC for me?

The Living Generation Church is my spiritual family. It’s a place where you´ll meet young people who are trully thursty for the word of God.

An authentic house of God, where nothing but the truth is being preached and you literally feel the presence of the Holy Spirit whenever we come together.  I love how it’s a place where it doesn’t matter where you come from, what degree you have, what you look like, which previous church you came from or how much knowledge you have about the word of God. Everyone is warmly welcomed and gifts and talents are recognized and sown into. I’ve witnessed people not only “hearing” the word but actually “listening” to it and being transformed. Young people taking their masks of, sharing their testimonies, encouraging each other to stay strong in their faith and just being real. The icing on the cake is to have a pastor who has an open ear for everyone, who challenges your faith and who will never make the church about himself but rather about God and God only!

Of course, we shouldn’t forget to mention that you will never go home hungry after the sunday service 😉

But why am saying, it’s my family? Because we are not only family in church or on sundays. This family cares about you all the time, wherever you are and whatever situation you are in!

Inauguration service – September 2nd 2018

This was my very first Sunday in the living generation church and to sum it up, it was incredible, the intercession, the praises, the worship, the preaching, the Holy Spirit was truly in the midst of this service. But let me break it down for you so you really understand what I mean. I had quite high expectations for that day, especially because some of my close friends, as part of the church, were talking about it for a while so I came expectantly. The service started at 11 am I was there a bit early and could see the excitement of some members. My boyfriend reserved a seat for the two of us so we sat in the second row.

The service ran very smooth, starting with a warm welcome and intercession. It was powerful to see how the young people of the church make room for God, how they let God use them. So we started with intercession and out of that, it became clear that prayer is a foundation that this church is built on and indeed this is a very strong foundation, to begin with. Back to the service so we started praying about a lot of different things and everything that was said got interpreted so it was basically a full-on service in English/ German. I personally really enjoyed that because I’m not used to it in that way.

Another thing that I loved is the fact that even though it was an inauguration service the focus remained on God throughout and even though they had a program for the day, they emphasised that regardless of the program they will let the service be led by the Holy Spirit. I love that they invited the Holy Spirit into their midst right from the start and well he certainly accepted that invite as he was truly in the midst of it all.

After praying I looked back just to see how many people were there and the whole room was full of people and even though I’m not a church member I was really happy to see the turnout. As they said this living generation church is different and the fact that so many young people were part of this truly put a smile on my face. They did worship and praises and let me tell you it was fire. The praise was sooo good, there was true life in that from the people in the choir that radiated through the room. The way they were praising God, there was nothing else one could do than do than join them and remember how good God is and we all know, he is great. And through the whole praises and worship, the lyrics were displayed so nicely that even without knowing the song one could still participate. The worship was equally as good, I could sense the presence of the Holy Spirit, and in general, it was emotional and wonderful.

The preaching was led by a guest preacher Pastor Joy from Amsterdam and guys I hope you encountered her on Monday as well for the ladies Bible study because it was a-ma-zing, but that just as a side note. Back to the Sunday service, the sermon was titled “focus”. After mentioning it I pondered around the word for a bit focus, well I stayed expectant to what will come. So focus…. she gave us 3 examples of people in the Bible that stayed focused despite their circumstances. First, Elisha that story can be found in 2 Kings 2:1-14, second Nehemiah from Nehemiah 1:3-6 and last but not least Solomon the story can be found in 2 Chronicles 1:7-12. Focus… the first example spoke to me personally because sometimes I lose focus on the things that are truly important because of my circumstances because of my situation. But no we should remain focused like Elisha he had to stay focused even though he knew that his master would be taken from him.

The sermon truly made me think about my own life and how important focus is in every situation and Pastor Joy summed it up saying that we should and need to focus on our personal relationship to God as well as the relationship to the Holy Spirit. But also for our purpose and time. I might be speaking for myself but I like sermons that personally speak to me and this one did. And even though most of us might know that we should focus on our relationship to God first it was different to hear it within that context.

Don’t quote me but I think after the sermon we prayed again and fully presented the church and its vision as well as the people of the church with a really nice video and then, it seemed like a surprise for Pastor Nick the members introduced him. And it was so great to see that they have a true relationship and someone to consult about everything in life, regardless of how bad it is. We then prayed for the church, for the members and Pastor Nick. After that, the two guests Pastor Maame and Pastor Joy (both present on Monday) came up again shared some inspiring words and surprisingly blessed Pastor Nick and his family with a gift. However, as a surprise to them, they got a gift from the church as well, for their help and presence.

The service really gave me the opportunity to see what the people in the church believe in, what they are built on and how much love they share for God and the way they understand each other and how much laughter they share together. After the service we had fellowship, there was loads of food so that everyone could stay a bit longer and have a chat with each other. And the church members took some pictures and videos and there was just so much joy and love.

Our Beliefs

About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living. (See II Timothy 3:15-17.)

 

About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man. (See Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16.)

 

About Sin and Salvation

Everyone has sinned and needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith based on the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (See Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9.)

 

About the Gospel

The saving Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel (II Thessalonians 1:8; I Peter 4:17) by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial and resurrection), and the baptism of the Holy Spirit accompanied by the fruits of the Spirit as well as the gifts of the Spirit. (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4, See Galatians 5: 22-24, 1 Corinthians 12: 7-11)

 

About Christian Living

As Christians we are transformed by the love of God and have the mandate to love God and others. We should live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. Our life must overflow with love and affect our communities and environments. That is the true transformation. Our lives must make proof of the fruits of the Spirit. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today. (See Romans 12: 2-3, Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10.)

 

About the Church

The Church is the congregation of born-again believers assembled in Christ’s Word and Spirit to be one body, put together of various members, each with an office and work dedicated to bettering the whole body and all its members. Christ is the head of the Church. (Rom. 12:4-8, 1 Cor.12, Eph. 1:22)

 

About the creation

God created the Universe by His Word and sustains it by His Word. Human beings are stewards in charge of God’s creation. Every creature is highly valued in the sight of God and is in God’s master plan of continuous sustenance of life. Christians are invited to be co-workers with God in taking care of the creation. (Genesis 1, John 1: 1-5, Hebrews 1: 2-3, Romans 8: 19-23)

 

About the Future

Jesus Christ is coming again to take away His church. In the end will be the final resurrection and the final judgment. The righteous will inherit eternal life, and the unrighteous eternal damnation. (See Matthew 25: 31-46, I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:11-15.)
