Dear Brethren in the churches of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is the Lord’s endeavour to build His church, and we are called to join Him in this as living stones and co-workers in His Kingdom. Yet, too many build churches according to the wisdom of men that lack the key-mark of Christ’s church: Brotherly love, expressed in community of goods, as it is written: “And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.” (Acts 2:32).
Therefore we plan to put this into practice in the region of the original settlements of the Anabaptist movement in Austria, in Lower Austria, close to Moravia.
We are a Christian House church that does not describe itself by denominational terms, but put Christ in the centre of all. We base our beliefs on the Scriptures, strive to be led by the Holy Spirit and value the good example of the Anabaptist who went the same path before us. Our vision is a community where we live, pray and work together as the Lord provides.
A true Christian “goes out from among them” (2Co 6:17-18) and “is joined to the church” (Acts 2:41), which functions like an order in a close fellowship of families and singles, young and old in Christ.
To start we want to avoid the system of worldly banks as much as possible and present this vision to you all. We opened PayPal Crowd-Donation page for all who want to support us with a Euro-donation in order to get the funds for a farmstead or house large enough for a Christian community in the sense described above. If someone wants to join us on the path, the Lord has shown us, we’d be glad to hear from you.
May our Lord multiply peace, love and joy to His disciples!
Peace be with you!
