How can we escape from a mostly monocultural church life? Would it not be amazing if today’s church reflected the colourfulness and wealth of languages and cultures promised us for the end of the age? A Mission Statement was formulated, putting into words the heartbeat of “Church on Equal Footing”:
Living interculturally as a church
The world is at home in Germany today.
God calls us from our limitations into a new worldwide fellowship in our local area.
We acknowledge that we are brothers and sisters and receive one another as a gift from God’s hand.
We learn to structure our fellowships together in all matters.
In this way we experience church as a foretaste of heaven.
Church on Equal Footing is a Germany-wide network, rather than an association or organisation. At the biannual meetings which so far have taken place in the form of “strategy workshops”, we experience one another as a fellowship in encouragement and mission, inspired and bound together by the Holy Spirit.
We are convinced: for a “CHURCH ON EQUAL FOOTINGl”, you need people with burning hearts, but also knowledge, skills and courage.
We are therefore developing practical projects for all three of the above-mentioned areas.
