LIGHT - Our Vision
APC exists to call the English speaking community of Bonn to Christ and Christlikeness by serving their needs.
L - Love one another. Jesus said that others would know that we are his followers by how we love
each other (John 13:34-35). We seek to love one another in and through all of our various
I - Invite others to join us. Evangelism is not just for trained preachers; rather, it is the simple act of
inviting others to discover the faith in Jesus Christ, which has changed our lives. We invite others
to worship, to join us for special events, to pariticipate in an ALPHA course or a Marriage Course.
The Pastor also invites newcomers to his home for a welcome coffee 3-4 times per year for them to
learn more about the life of the APC.
G - God at the center of all that we do. Learning to worship and know God: Father, Son and Holy
Spirit must be at the center of who we are as a church (Rev. 7:17). Our preaching ministry is geared
toward encouraging the congregation to grow to spiritual maturity in Jesus Christ (Col. 2:2-3).
H - Help one another. (Service/Missions) Our desire is to help others less fortunate than ourselves
in our congregation, in Bonn and throughout the world. "For we are God's workmanship, created in
Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (Ephesians 2:10).
T - Teach and equip each other for life. In a wide variety of ministries and study groups we seek to
build up one another in order to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, understanding both the faith and
how it applies to life today (John 6:68).
