Our model of church leadership
As a church we would like to conform to the model of leaderhip which we can read about in the Bibel, particularly in the New Testament.
- Local Christian churches are lead by elders. (Acts 20:28, 1. Peter 1:2)
- Elders are men who display the characteristics displayed in the New Testament. (1. Tim. 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9)
- Elders are men who are ordained to lead, love and serve the believers. (Acts 20:17-38, 1. Peter 5:1-4)
- Deacons are appointed by the elders and the church to assist them in this God-given ministry. (Philippians 1:1, Acts 6, 1. Tim. 3)
Jesus der Weg e.V. is a non-denominational christian fellowship in Munich, whose main vision is to spread the gospel and to lead people into a closer relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. We also support projects and assist the needy in Munich, as well as in other countries through missionaries or other known projects. All of these projects are based on Christian principles.
The church activities are entirely funded by tithes, gifts and offerings from church members.
We want to be faithful to God’s Word and prudent with every financial expense. God is the provider of all we need and we want to be good stewards of His provision for us. Our lifestyle should reflect God`s generosity, compassion and faithfulness in every aspect, including our finances.

Up to 20% of the gross income is tax-deductible in respect of donations to charitable organisations.
