ANSWERS TO

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is GIVICI’s theology?

Our theology is quite simple:

  • God is the Creator of heaven and earth.
  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the redeemer of humanity.
  • Every person is a sinner and needs redemption through Jesus.
  • By believing in Jesus, you receive the Holy Spirit, who dwells in you.
  • The Holy Spirit gives you the spiritual gifts with which you can build up the fellowship of Christians.
  • As a Christian, you are a part of a church, a community of Christians with whom you share your life.
  • The Bible is God's Word and the foundation of your Christian life.
  • God wants all people to become His children and followers. This is why we see it as our duty to announce the Good News at all times.
  • Love God and love your neighbor as yourself

We affirm the historical creeds of the Protestant tradition.

Is a house church enough for a Christian? Isn’t there something missing?

In Acts 2:42 it is written how the first churches worshipped together:
They remained constant in the teaching of the apostles and in fellowship and in breaking bread and in prayer.
They were all house churches! Therefore, church requires the following practices: teaching (preaching), fellowship, prayer, and the Lord’s Supper.

Can I get pastoral care at GIVCI?

Yes. Here you can ask your house church leader or the head office. Here we have trained pastors, who can accompany you also over telephone or Skype.

How to found a house church?

It is best to do our gift test first, so that you and we can assess your strengths. Then we will contact you and discuss everything else with you! You will then also get a coach who will show you the first steps, provide you with the necessary materials and contract documents and support you completely in the first services and continue to be at your side afterwards. Have a look at the pages of our already existing house churches and let yourself be inspired!

Purely organizational:
You find an employee or put together a small team. Think about a basic plan: How do you want to organize the house church? Where and when should your meetings take place? Who are you trying to reach? Our house churches should not be a small closed private club, but we want to inspire people of Jesus Christ!
