The word liberal in liberal Christianity originally denoted a characteristic willingness to interpret scripture according to modern philosophic perspectives and modern scientific assumptions, while attempting to achieve the Enlightenment ideal of an objective point of view, without preconceived notions of the authority of scripture or the correctness of Church dogma. Liberal Christians may hold certain beliefs in common with Catholic Christianity, Orthodox Christianity, or even Christian fundamentalism.
Because at Eric Michel Ministries International we are open to all Christians: Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, fundamentalism. The only difference it’s regarding sins and hell as we are more open to the universal reconciliation. No sermons will aim at eternal hell.
Ecumenism the interdenominational initiative aimed at greater cooperation among Christian churches. We strive for greater mutual respect, toleration, and co-operation among other Christians. As Protestant spiritual unity suffices us, the most important in Christian ecumenism is that people focus primarily on Christ, not on separate church organizations. We all see the risen Christ at work in the lives of various Christian churches. We overcome in the faith in Christ to be one in him and love one another as a witness to the world.
We believe holding in common with the Christian church around the world and God’s Word by the power of the Holy Spirit, God speaks to us through this book.
John 17 (Public Domain)
These things spake Jesus; and lifting up his eyes to heaven, he said, Father, the hour comes; glorify thy Son, that the son may glorify thee: Even as thou gavest him authority over all flesh, that to all whom thou hast given him, he should give eternal life.
And this is life eternal, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou didst send, even Jesus Christ. I glorified thee on the earth, having accomplished the work which thou hast given me to do.
And now, Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. I manifested thy name unto the men whom thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me, and they have kept thy word. Now they know that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are from thee: For the words which thou gavest me I have given unto them, and they received them and knew of a truth that I came forth from thee, and they believed that thou didst send me.
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for those whom thou hast given me; for they are thine: And all things that are mine are thine, and thine are mine: and I am glorified in them. And I am no more in the world, and these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are.
While I was with them, I kept them in thy name which thou hast given me: and I guarded them, and not one of them perished, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. But now I come to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy made full in themselves.
I have given them thy word; and the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that thou shouldest take them from the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is the truth.
As thou didst send me into the world, even so sent I them into the world. And for their sakes, I sanctify myself, that they themselves also may be sanctified in truth. Neither for these only do I pray, but for them also that believe on me through their word; that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us: that the world may believe that thou didst send me.
And the glory which thou hast given me I have given unto them; that they may be one, even as we are one; I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one; that the world may know that thou didst send me, and loved them, even as thou loved me. Father, I desire that they also whom thou hast given me be with me where I am, that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, the world knew thee not, but I knew thee, and these knew that thou didst send me, and I made known unto them thy name and will make it known; that the love wherewith thou lovedst me may be in them, and I in them.
The Scripture says that we were created for God’s glory and to proclaim his praises. We at Eric Michel Ministries International exist to worship God, it comes from the heart, our genuine expression of our real feelings. We adore God above everything else. Like Paul, we are prepared to do all possible to get the message of Jesus out to others.
Christ is our only hope of a right relationship with God for now and eternity. When individuals put their faith in Christ they do not instantly achieve all their potential in Christ.
Spiritual growth must take place, and it takes place over time, we are ministers who are guides, we lead you to the right path. God provides the supernatural power for such task.
Very Small Community
Why are we so small?
It is because we are a chaplaincy and our task after our first response is to refer to their own parish pastor. We work with emergency services personnel providing the same kind of support as do chaplains working with law enforcement, and sometimes face even greater danger, working with the wounded in often very dangerous surroundings.
Our work is similar in many respects as pastors. We provide counselling and spiritual ministry to those in need, but we are not associated with a church or parish, we offer counselling and care on location in the community.
We minister within the spirituality of the person we serve. Also, you will see us often in other churches, the main reason is to create a link in our community for future referrals.
Sunday at 9:00 and 10:30 in French. Visitors always welcome! Wheelchair accessible.
