God, the Father, sent his Son Jesus Christ to us to reveal his good news.

The good news is that God is love and wants to save all people from their lostness and corruption.

Jesus Christ is our savior, role model and teacher.

We as the church of Christ want a living relationship with our God and Creator.

The Bible, given to us by God, is our compass and authority.

About us

We are also happy to discuss our convictions in private. We look forward to hearing from you. You can find further texts in our brochures.

„…boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Acts 28,31

The heart of the matter for Jesus was the gospel, i.e. the Good News about the Kingdom of God. He devoted the last three years of his life on earth to spreading the good news that God was about to break the bondage of evil in this world and is now inviting everyone to subject themselves to his righteous, fatherly reign.

To get to the heart of the matter Jesus was required to make the ultimate sacrifice: he gave up his perfect sinless life on a cross, in order to destroy Satan’s captivating power over mankind. After which God the Father, raised his beloved Son from death und had him enthroned to his right-hand side in the heavens. Jesus lives on today and reigns as Lord over heaven and earth.

A kingdom requires both a king and a people. Jesus is the king. His people are those who freely acknowledge and submit to his reign. These are his church. The kingdom of God is present, where people serve and honour Jesus as King.

To honour Jesus as King of all kings is the heart of the matter in the church of Christ.

“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth. „Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you…”
Matthew 28, 18-20.

Just like the very first disciples of Jesus Christ, we want to share with everyone the good news that Jesus is God’s appointed Lord over mankind, and that he has established a kingdom where truth, forgiveness and righteousness reigns. King Jesus invites everyone into his kingdom by forgiving us our sins und braking sin’s grip over our lives. Our mission is to spread this good news (the gospel).

Everyone who believes the gospel: that Jesus sacrificed his life on the cross to forgive us our sins; was resurrected from death; and now reigns from heaven with God his father, can be baptized for the remission of their sins and the reception of the Holy Spirit. Baptism is the moment, when Jesus washes your sins away and makes you a disciple in his kingdom. It is a burial with Him in water und a resurrection to new life with the Holy Spirit.

After a person is born anew of water and the Spirt, he/she has much to learn from their new Lord. A new-born requires much love, encouragement und protection. For this purpose Jesus has organised his people into local churches.

“And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
Acts 2:42

Every Sunday each local church gathers together to remember what Jesus has accomplished for us by way of his victory over sin and Satan; to praise God; and to learn from our Lord. Everything that takes place in our assemblies should be for the building up of our faith in God and love for one another.

Together we bring our concerns and our thankfulness in prayer before God. We praise Him with spiritual songs. We submit to our Lord’s teachings and listen to what the Holy Spirit says to us from the Bible.

Every Sunday we eat the Lord’s Supper together, about which Jesus, during his last meal with his disciples said: “Do this in my memory.” Just as Jesus took bread, thanked and broke it with the words: “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”; we also break and eat bread in memory of his sacrifice for us. In the same way we drink from his cup and remember the covenant, he made with us through the shedding of his own blood.

“Behold, I tell you a mystery; we shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
1 Corinthians 15:51-52

Our hope goes beyond death and this world as we know it.

Despite the unrelenting tricks and tactics of his enemies, Jesus remained true to his heavenly father in all his words and deeds. Despite unimaginable suffering – including execution on a roman cross – Jesus, because of his great love for both his father and humankind. remained true to both God and to us.

God revealed his love and his power by resurrecting his Son Jesus from death and giving him a majestic, powerful and immortal spiritual body.

God has promised that he will raise everyone from the dead at the end of time. Jesus will judge each and every person justly and compassionately. All those who have trusted in Christ Jesus and have subjected themselves to his reign will be judged worthy of eternal life and be transformed into a spiritual body just as Jesus was at his resurrection.

This is our hope: to be transformed into the image of Christ and equipped for eternal life in fellowship with our Lord and God.

“But we request of you, brethren, that you appreciate those who diligently labor among you, and have charge over you in the Lord and give you instruction, and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. Live in peace with one another.”
1.Thessalonians 5:12-13

The churches of Christ are not organized into regional, national or international divisions or hierarchies. Each local church is responsible for itself; has no headquarters, but rather answers only to its head – the Lord Jesus Christ. According to the New Testament, each local church is a representation of the Body of Christ and should operate as such.

Christ’s church also knows no clergy-laity distinction. All brothers and sisters in Christ are children of God and are his priests. A Christian needs no other mediator to reach God other than Jesus Christ himself.

A local church is led by brothers, whom the church membership has deemed capable of providing leadership. In so far as particular brothers fulfil the biblical qualifications, they can be appointed to serve in leadership roles as elders, deacons and evangelists.

“Let each one do just as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.”
2.Corinthians 9:7-8

The money which the church requires for its existence and works is received through voluntary donations by its members, who give as much as they like and are able.

These funds are primarily used to cover the costs for the education and salary of preachers/teachers, as well as the costs of assembling together and local evangelisation and benevolent works. Churches and missionaries in foreign countries are supported as well.

Our finances are directed by the “Committee in Service of the Church of Christ Zurich” and are open to inspection.
