⇒ New series of sermons about the Sermon on the Mount

An impressive and radical sermon of Jesus 

On Sunday 7 January a new series of sermons started in ICF-Delft. This series is about an impressive and very radical sermon that Jesus delivered on a hillside about 2000 years ago. It is called ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ later. Jesus deals with all kinds of life issues, the relationship with God and the relationship with fellow people. He illustrates the big difference between the disciples and the world around. Followers of Him not only love their friends, but also their enemies. They are not concerned and will not be afraid in difficult times because they trust God as their caring father. They don’t do things in order to be seen or gain something from it…But doesn’t this sound impossible? Where can you find a church with such a profile? Jesus’ words are a call to transforming discipleship that only He is able to realize in our life.

⇒ Andreas course 2018 

The Andreascourse 2018 will start again soon on Monday evenings in February, March and April. The first evening is scheduled on Monday 12 February in the chapel of the Old Church, corner Oude Delft and Heilige Geestkerkhof (starting with a meal). The Andreas course is a nice Bible based course intended of for those who are not familiar with Christian faith and want to know more. More info about the content of the course (Andreascourse 2017) that can be found in here.

⇒ Wait, pray and work for the breakthrough of God’s kingdom 

We continue to wait, pray and work for the breakthrough of God’s Kingdom in a world that is shaken by distress and fear at one hand, and egoistic powerplays and greed at the other hand. At the same time there are so many beautiful testimonies of people and churches who serve in places of need, in refugee camps or in city centers, in places hit by poverty or in the proud world of the university. In the IREF/ICF-Delft fellowship we continue to pray and work for the people far from home, whether they are afflicted by war and terrorist attacks or they search for success and future in studying in a foreign country. 

 ⇒ Nobody can take our freedom… is that true?

Five years a devastating war rages in Syria, one that has gone far beyond the borders of the country. Islamic State has shown its cruel face to the world. The media confronts us with unceasing suffering of innocent people, not in the last place Christians. Brute fundamentalists, who abuse the name of God kill them, plunder their houses, destroy their churches, rape their wives and daughters…. Click here to read more.
