Welcome to FeG Bad Camberg
Our sevices are held every Sunday at 10:30 am in the school hall of the Freiherr-von-Schütz-Schule, Frankfurter Str. 15-19 in Bad Camberg (see more in ‚Wegbeschreibung‘).
Our services consist of prayer, worship / singing to God, biblical sermons and the holy communion (twice a month).
We also offer several age-related Sunday School classes for your children during the service.
Sunday service usually takes about 60-90 minutes. After the official part of the service we take time to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee together and talk – also in English, so please, feel invited.
Many of us speak more or less good English, so if you would like to have a translation you can expect one. Whenever you come to visit us the sermon and the rest of the service will be translated to you. Please feel free to ask anyone for help.
What we believe
The ‚Freie evangelische Gemeinde‘ (Free Evangelical Church) Bad Camberg is one of at least 450 churches in the Federation of Free Evangelical Churches in Germany.
A Federation of Churches
Free Evangelical Churches live for Jesus Christ.
A personal faith in Him is the single condition of membership. Every church is run independently and uses the gifts and talents of its members to praise and serve God. Pastors are appointed in consultation with the federation of FeGs.
Each church finances itself through donations and makes the vast majority of important church related decisions independently.
With over 450 affiliated churches the federation sees itself as a strong and lively community. The federation is not simply out to produce results; rather it is a universal community that lives with and in Jesus Christ and that faces common tasks and challenges.
In the Bible Jesus says: „You did not choose me; I chose you to go and bear much fruit, the kind of fruit that endures“ (John 15:16a).
Founded in The Word of God
The Bible is the cornerstone of each FeG.
It concerns itself not with how human beings imagine God to be; rather it is Gods binding and infallible message to his people. That is why the Bible sets the standard by which church members live their lives, both within the private sphere and within the community. Consequently, much emphasis is placed on studying the Bible and acting upon God´s Word.
The Free Evangelical Churches are convinced that the person who listens to God´s word, obeys it and relies on its promises will experience its power, and discover how it provides a firm foundation for his or her faith.
Jesus once said: „Whoever is willing to do what God wants will know whether what I teach comes from God or whether it comes from my own authority“ (John 7:17).
Moved by the love of Jesus
God loves his world!
Even if His people have rejected Him, His affection for them is unstoppable. The greatest manifestation of this love is in the death of his son, Jesus Christ. Around 2,000 years ago Jesus died in our place for the sins of all people.
FeGs live out this truth and hope that all in their ranks are united not in what we have done for God, but in what God has done for us. Young or old, man or woman, regardless of status, origin or worldly success – God rejoices in giving new life to all who believe in Him.
It is written in the Bible: „For God so loved the world that he gave His only son, that everyone who believes in Him may not die, but have eternal life“ (John 3:16).
Reaching out to his people
The news of God´s love must be made known.
God Himself commands us to do so. That is why FeGs encourage each of their members to be a credible witness in Christ – not only in words, but also in the way they live their lifes. The life of the church should also reflect this pattern.
For this reason, rather than cutting themselves off from society, church members share their lives with those who are still skeptical when it comes to entrusting themselves to Jesus care. That is why they found new churches. They are constantly looking for new ways to convey the gospel in an up-to-date and universally comprehensible fashion.
They long to bring people into contact with Jesus Christ and make them into His disciples. This is also the motivation behind the federation´s missionary and social engagement.
In the Bible Jesus says: „As the Father sent me, so I send you“ (John 20:21b).
