LiFE Seminars

Life Fully Experienced is a set of teaching seminars that helps you in your quest to make disciples: from introducing the Gospel to non-believers to helping Christians reach spiritual maturity.

The journey

Over the course of the sessions, we will be using an adapted version of the Engel scale, which challenges the common belief that our roles as evangelists, teachers etc. is just to help people to move from unbelief to belief. We acknowledge that the journey of a Christian is much more complex, and in exploring often forgotten aspects of the Christian walk, we will help uncover skills, gifts and talents for people who maybe don’t simply see themselves as evangelists or teachers.

Questions we'll be asking

How can we be happy?

Everyone wishes to be happy. The saying goes: “Everyone is the architect of his own fortune”. But on our human paths for happiness, do we really reach the hoped-for goal?

Why does God allow this?

Terrorist attacks, natural disasters, plane crashes, etc. leave behind the penetrating question: Why does God allow this? This question is so explosive, because it often has far-reaching effects in our private experiences.

What is the meaning of life?

Every person wants to find the answers to the following three questions: Where do I come from? Where am I going to, what comes after death? What should I do during the short period of my earthly life? — What happens if we look to God, for answers to these questions?

Discovering the gift of God

This is God’s immense gift: He loves us so much that he gave his only Son for us. Whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life! Shall we accept this huge gift?

Life in new dimensions

The personal relationship to Jesus changes a person completely and opens up totally new dimensions. In prayer we experience his presence, his comfort and his strength. The Bible becomes a
living guide for our life. New friends enrich and strengthen our new life with God.
