Church of the New Christians

Nearly 2000 years ago GOD, namely JESUS CHRIST, foun­ded a Church, whose faith­ful called them­selves Chris­ti­ans. Des­pite su­preme ef­fort of her stew­ards, how­ever, this Church be­came more and more hu­man­ized.

The chal­lenges of the cen­tur­ies of­ten had to be op­posed with con­sist­ent le­gis­la­tion, and this Church did not al­ways have holy stew­ards who ac­ted in the spirit of her Founder. A Church be­com­ing ri­gid by laws was our century’s her­it­age.

And worse was yet to come: the re­forms were un­der­mined by the spirit of the world and as a res­ult de­feated their pur­pose.

Like a young shoot the Church of the New Chris­ti­ans arises re­newed from the rot­ten trunk of the old Church.

Foundation of the New Christians

So the Church of the New Chris­ti­ans does not rep­res­ent a new Church. She is the con­tinu­ation of the apostolic tra­di­tion, her be­lief is Ro­man Cath­olic. Her found­a­tion is based on Peter the rock, i.e. she em­bod­ies the Church of JESUS CHRIST ad­ap­ted to our time with her ori­ginal riches of thought and grace.

Love and sim­pli­city im­prin­ted their mark on the early Chris­tian spirit. The mis­sion­ary task of the Apostles com­prised lib­er­a­tion from the ri­gid cult of the law, re­demp­tion from the chain of sin, and guid­ance to­wards in­ner in­de­pend­ence with GOD.

Represented in Eight Countries

Apart from some faith­ful through­out the world we have gained a foothold in eight coun­tries ori­gin­at­ing with the mother house in Switzer­land. In Switzer­land, Ger­many, Aus­tria, France, the Neth­er­lands, Bel­gium, Italy and Cameroon (Africa) bish­ops, priests and dea­cons provide pas­toral care for the faith­ful. Sis­ters, presided by an ab­bess, as well as lay help­ers sup­port this mis­sion­ary work.

Financing of the New Christians

The clergy, the  or­der of sis­ters and co-work­ers be­long­ing to the laity lead a life of so-called evan­gel­ical poverty. This means that they re­ceive neither pay­ment nor al­low­ance.

Costs for hous­ing, fur­nish­ing of chapels, elec­tri­city, wa­ter, heat­ing, nour­ish­ment, cloth­ing, vehicles and their main­ten­ance, ob­lig­at­ory in­sur­ances, tele­com­mu­nic­a­tion, print­ing, of­fice, mis­sion­ary work and many more things are be­ing fin­anced in all houses by vol­un­tary dona­tions. We want to show GOD our trust by de­mand­ing no con­tri­bu­tions, tax, charges and the like, nor neither for the ad­min­is­tra­tions of Sac­ra­ments. We are greatly ob­liged, how­ever, for vol­un­tary gifts con­cern­ing in­ten­tions for prayer and Mass.

Matt. 6,31ff: „Be not so­li­cit­ous there­fore, say­ing: What shall we eat, what shall we drink, where­with shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the hea­thens seek. For your heav­enly Father knows that you have need of all these things. Seek you there­fore first the king­dom of God and his right­eous­ness, and all these things shall be ad­ded unto you.“

These dona­tions should be vol­un­tary for the very reason that in giv­ing vol­un­tar­ily one gains great re­cog­ni­tion with GOD. This merit should not be with­held from the faith­ful and be­ne­fact­ors.

2 Cor. 9,7: „Every one as he has de­term­ined in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly or of ne­ces­sity; for God loves a cheer­ful giver.“

A Work of GOD

It is not by the will of man that the Church of the New Chris­ti­ans is act­ive, but at GOD’s de­sire.

The Sword-Bishop, leader of the New Chris­ti­ans: „GOD de­sires that part of the people should fight with me in the name of the small flock of JESUS CHRIST!

I stand in need of sup­port and faith. Be­ne­vol­ent and un­selfish people do I need in or­der to be able to cope with my mis­sion.

Here I am, ready for GOD and man­kind!
How about you?“
