Greek Evangelical Church of Aegina
Welcome to official site of the Greek Evangelical church of Aegina!
Please take the time to find more about who we are and what we believe.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Joh 14:6
Who we are
The Greek Evangelical Church originates spiritually from the Apostolic Church that Jesus Christ Himself founded and historically from the Reformation of the 16th century. In Greece, the first Evangelical Church was founded in 1858 in Athens, where it continues its ministry today. Since then, many other Evangelical churches were founded in various cities and towns of our country, which increased mainly with the arrival of Greek Evangelical refugees from Asia Minor. The Greek Evangelical church of Aegina is part of the Greek Evangelical churches network as you can find it here: http://gec.gr/
We derive our name “Evangelical” from the Greek word “Ευαγγέλιο” for the entire Holy Bible, which makes up the sole canon of our life and faith. We worship God with the propriety and devotion that is suitable for Him and with the simplicity of the first Apostolic Church.
What we believe
The Greek Evangelical church accepts fully the Nicene Creed (Nice/Constantinople) which is a summary of the fundamental values of the Christian faith. The Nicene Creed is a Symbol of faith widely used in Christian liturgy. It is called Nicene because it was originally adopted in the city of Nicaea (present day Iznik, Turkey) by the First Council of Nicaea in 325. In 381, it was amended at the First Council of Constantinople, and the amended form is referred to as the Nicene or the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed.
The purpose of our Church is to worship our wonderful Lord as a family, to preach and teach the Word of God, to lead the lost and sinning person to Jesus Christ who’s the only way to salvation, and to offer Christian fellowship, encouragement and edification. Therefore, the only invitation we offer is an invitation for every person to come to Jesus Christ. It is that same invitation that He made:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11: 28).
This call from Jesus Christ conceals within itself all of the mercy, all of the love, all of the forgiveness and grace of God, because it is addressed to all people: to people who are sinners by nature, and He calls them neither for punishing them nor for defending themselves, but to save, forgive and offer eternal life.
This heavenly and divine call is addressed to all, and the response that God awaits to this call is not to turn to a certain philosophy or religion, but that we personally go to Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, and was resurrected for our justification. It is this great commission that the Lord gave to His disciples and to His church, telling them:
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation” (Mark 16:15).
