The statement of faith of the GOSPEL FORUM Stuttgart is based exclusively on the teachings of the Holy Scriptures, the Bible. In addition, we identify ourselves with the Apostles’ Creed of the old church, which is recognized by the majority of Christian denominations.
We believe in life after death. This will be incredibly beautiful (Paradise) for all those who have made the decision in faith to follow Jesus Christ.
We believe that God is a wonderful father. He is the creator of heaven and earth. He loves all people and desires a living and never-ceasing relationship with each one of us (Luke 15).
We believe in the power and divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures; i.e. the Bible, which serves as our guide us in all areas of our lives.
We believe in the importance of baptism for all who believe.
We believe wholeheartedly in the unity of all those who believe in and worship Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who came to earth to deliver us from our separation from God and our selfishness. Jesus died for us on the cross to pay for our sins, was resurrected after three days, and appeared personally afterwards to more than 500 witnesses. He then ascended into heaven, where He sits at the right hand of God, from where He reigns over the universe for all eternity. He now has all authority over heaven and the earth.
We believe that the love of God, which He has poured into our hearts through His Holy Spirit, is the greatest and most important factor in a person’s life.
We believe in the significance of celebrating Communion, where we experience profoundly and personally what happened on Calvary.
We believe in eternal judgment of all who have rejected God’s love.
We believe in the return of Jesus as King and Lord to all who are awaiting Him, and for salvation and eternal life with God in heaven.
We believe that Jesus is building His church here on earth (Mt 16:18) and that we are members of the worldwide body of Christ.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is our friend, helper, strength, counsel, comfort, inspiration, and motivator here on earth. He gives us fantastic gifts (charisma) and produces change in our character (fruit of the Spirit). He enables us to live a supernatural life naturally, in a world which is otherwise dominated by materialistic priorities. He provides us daily with new strength and divine energy. The Holy Spirit makes the word of God impactful. He arouses faith in man and offers him the opportunity to make a decision for a life of faith in Jesus Christ.
