We Welcome All

We are committed to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, worshipping Him primarily in the English and German languages. We seek to love God in all of our lives, with all that we are—"with all our heart, soul, mind and strength". We do this in response to what He has made known of Himself in Scripture, with an emphasis on:
Bible Teaching: We believe that when the Bible is taught, God's voice is heard and only this can meet our deepest needs.
Prayer: We aim to be a church built by God not man!

Our identity as Christians

equipping believers to live for Christ


SEND out God's ministers

Vision: our role in Leipzig

In God's strength we seek to be whole people taking the whole Bible to the whole world:

Whole People

loving God with clear minds and warm hearts, worshipping him in our everyday life

Whole Bible

proclaiming God's unchanging Word, applying it to life in a changing world

Whole World

advancing God's world-wide purposes by realizing our God-given opportunities of 
an international community, a world language, a university city and a historic denomination.

Foundations of what we believe

All that we are and all that we do is founded on our belief in the God Who reveals Himself through the Scriptures. So God the Three-in-One is in His very nature relationship. He has created us in His image, for relationship with Him and with one another.

God the Father

The sovereign Creator
and daily Sustainer of all mankind

God the Son

The living Word Who reveals God, and what it means to live in 'God's image';
the loving Saviour Who alone brings us to God through His death for our sin;
the risen Lord Who meets us through His Holy Spirit in His life-giving Word.

God the Holy Spirit

God the Holy Spirit,
Who glorifies Jesus as He brings us to new life and works in our lives:
opening our mind to our need and our Saviour;
humbling our will to repent and believe;
moving our heart to loving devotion;
thus building the church as His witness to the world.

Values & Aims

Here is what matters to us and what we want LEC to look like: our desire is to be a biblical "Gemeinde", making Christ visible in the world as we live in restored relationships with God and with one another.

Since God has spoken, we want His Word to be at the heart of our life together:

a Gemeinde where God's Word is taught and studied and passed on,
a people whose lives are shaped by that Word as we live it out in practice.

Since God has saved us, we want the cross to be at the heart of our life together:

a Gemeinde where God's saving grace is the foundation of all that we are and the motivation for all that we do,
a People who respond to Him in wholehearted devotion, humble dependence, and prayerful expectancy.

Since God gathers us to be Gemeinde, we want love for one another to be at the heart of our life together:

a Gemeinde where each one matters and all play their part,
a People who care for each others' needs, are committed to one another's growth, and use our gifts in mutual service.

Since God sends us out to a lost world, we want the spread of the gospel to be at the heart of our life together:

a Gemeinde with wide horizons which seeks to be a blessing to the wider church
a People who share God's concern for the lost as we go into all the world to make Christ known in words and works.

All this we seek for God's glory, compelled by Christ's love, in the strength of His Holy Spirit.
