Who we are?

The Free Baptist congregation in Deventer is a place where young and old are coming together to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We are a congregation that wants to be a witness how God, through Jesus Christ His son works in people, where fundamental questions are addressed and where is room to serve each other and where gifts of the Holy Spirit are being used for the glory of God. We want to strengthen each other in faith, knowledge and relationship to fulfill the great commandment of our God as written in

Math. 22:37-40:

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
