“I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” – Ephesians 3:16-19
Berlin Immanuel Church is a group of people committed to the gospel of Jesus Christ which is the truth and power that changes individuals and society. It is the truth that changes who we are and gives us a new true identity and purpose in Christ. Not only is gospel the truth but also the power of God that changes our hearts, relationships and everything we do in both private and public life. We are driven by gospel as it changes us from the inside out, transforming the way we view ourselves and others, forming us into the likeness of Jesus Christ.
We are not just a place to visit on Sunday morning, but a living community centered on the gospel which transforms people of different backgrounds into a family that shares genuine love and care for each other. It is in a gospel community where we can see the power of gospel work in our relationships, in our humility, forgiveness, reconciliation and love for our neighbor. This power doesn’t only transform our relationships, but also shines the truth into the society and culture, so that all people can see the hope which only gospel can give.
