Unity in Christ does not exclude diversity (01.06.2023)
God in His triune nature is not a mental construct, but is someone who can be experienced directly. Despite the diversity of the individual members, the church of Christ comprises a single entity. The power and authority of Jesus Christ extend into the beyond. These are the subjects of our divine services in June.
With power, love, and self-control (28.05.2023)
“Trust in the gift of the Holy Spirit.” This was the appeal made by Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider in the central Pentecost service he conducted in Cape Town in South Africa. For in this way, believers are equipped with everything they need to reach their goal.

Persevere in the Apostles’ teaching! This is an exhortation that believers are quite familiar with. But what exactly does it mean? Here are some answers from a divine service about serving, following Christ, and the question of who really is the boss here.
The Holy Spirit was promised, sent, and is active (03.05.2023)
Ascension Day and Pentecost—the month of May speaks for itself. And so do our divine services: the brothers and sisters will learn more about the announcement of the Holy Spirit and how God reveals Himself to them as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Sorrow will turn to joy (02.05.2023)
The weeping of the disciples over the suffering and death of Jesus was transformed into joy: Jesus is risen! Back then, as today, suffering is transformed into joy. This is the message that Chief Apostle Schneider conveyed in a recent divine service.
Spotlight 7/2023: Relinquish – retain (01.05.2023)
To reign with Christ is a higher form of service. This is what District Apostle John Kriel from South Africa says in his article on our annual motto. What exactly this means he explains by telling us what we need to let go of and what we need to hold on to.
