ABOUT US AS THE CHURCH
Christliches Zentrum Herrnhut has been an independent congregation since 1999. Before this we operated as a charismatic prayer group for over 20 years. We are an Evangelical congregation but do not belong to a larger denomination (such as Lutheran, Baptist or Pentecostal). It is very important to us to be in good relationship with other churches. As hosts here in the Jesus-Haus, we have a heart for Christians of all denominations, traditions and backgrounds. We remain in close relationship with many good friends and congregations in Germany as well as other nations. We identify with churches in the charismatic movement and operate in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, healing, prophecy, and praying in tongues.
We believe that the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ is the Church’s most precious treasure. We want to live and preach it.
Worshipping God, prayer, and encounter with HIM are the heartbeat of our church life.
Spirit and Word
We treasure the Holy Spirit and His gifts. We love God’s word; it teaches us what to do in every situation of our lives.
Honest, growing relationships are the lifeblood of our church. We need each other, differences and all, to grow in God’s ways.
Sharing God’s love begins in our own backyard and spreads into all the world. For many years we have supported practical outreach projects in Eastern Europe, Asia, Israel and Africa.
Ministries in the church
The Sunday service is at the center of church life. Throughout the week, we also meet in several groups and ministry branches that each focus on a specific age group or topic. You can read about them down below.
Every Sunday at 10 am we meet together to celebrate God’s goodness and to express our love and thankfulness to Him. We sing, pray and hear a positive, Biblical message that helps us to live out God’s Word in our everyday life. People from diverse nations and of all ages can be found each week enjoying the free, celebratory atmosphere. Our children meet in smaller groups during the sermon time.
One of the ways we live out our community life is through our weekly house groups. In these smaller clusters of eight to fifteen people, we have the opportunity to share our everyday lives together and to grow in our relationship with God. The individual house groups each have a specific focus, such as mission, evangelization, or in-depth Bible study.
God has placed a calling on the life of every child: to know Him and to make Him known. In each child there is a great potential, and it is imperative to discover it. Through everything we do in our children’s ministry, we want to make sure that the children get to know God and His word, that they begin to speak to Him and hear from Him, and that they learn how to follow Jesus. >>> Read more...
Every three or four months, women from Herrnhut and the surrounding towns come for Women’s Breakfast. We often have around 30 women from various congregations here to enjoy the beautifully decorated tables, delicious food and the opportunity to chat. Following our meal, one of the women from the group or a special guest will share a bit of her own testimony. We always come away challenged and encouraged to hear how God has worked in another’s personal life experiences.
Israel Prayer Group
For several years, an inter-denominational group has been meeting together each week to pray for Israel. Our theme Bible verse is:
“I have posted watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give Him no rest, until He establishes Jerusalem and makes her a praise in the earth.” (Isaiah 62:6–7)
Come and discover a variety of goods from Israel, Ethiopia and Nepal. You can find gifts for many occasions. >>> Read more...

For many years we have enjoyed close relationships with individuals and congregations in other nations. Many of these are the result of our contact with international visitors who came here with an interest in Herrnhut’s history, and others have come through missionaries sent out from our congregation. Through these relationships, we have had the opportunity to visit and partner with growing ministries in various locations around the world. >>> Read more...
