Antwerp International Protestant Church
Lord of Creation & New Creation. Colossians 1:15-20
This is one of the deepest and richest texts in the world! Here we learn that Jesus is Lord of all creation. And that Jesus is Lord of the new creation. What does this mean for our intellectual life, for science, for art? Most important, what does it mean for our worship?
The Worldwide Movement. Colossians 1:1-8
For a second time we offer a "church service for people who don't go to church." We explain what we do and why for those who are curious. This time we will look at the worldwide movement that is Christianity. As someone wrote around the year 150, for Christians "every foreign country is a homeland, and every homeland is a foreign country."
Red Threads: The Final Feast
Our last Red Thread ties them all together: the Lamb's Wedding Feast on the Mountain of the Lord, where we eat the Bread of Life and the Fruit of the Tree of Life, where we drink the Water of Life and the Wine of Salvation, and where God Himself is the Light. Every Red Thread is there. All our deepest longings are fulfilled there.
Red Threads: Marriage of Heaven & Earth
The Bible begins with the marriage of a man and woman. The Bible ends with the marriage of God and humanity. This is the one red thread that is not a physical thing, but the marriage relationship and the relationship between God and people teach us a lot about one another.
