Christianity means community through Jesus Christ and in Jesus Christ. No Christian community is more or less than this. Whether it is a brief, single encounter or the daily fellowship of years, Christian community is only this. We belong to one another only through and in Jesus Christ.
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Samuel Wells (2015). “Life Together”, p.10, SCM Press
If you are a new student in Rotterdam, starting your studies at Erasmus or another university, it can be quite intimidating. And that's okay. For many students it's the first time leaving their parents home, and that's only made increasingly difficult if it's a different city - or a different country!
While attending university we are exposed to vast amounts of knowledge, yet we often don't take to think about the bigger questions. Students for Christ Rotterdam is a group of students who want to understand what it means to follow Jesus and how to do that together.
Whether you have never gone to church, always been in church, looking for an international church or trying to stay away from one - we want to explore life with Jesus together. That's why this blog will focus on the student life in Rotterdam, and how we can do that together and in line with what Jesus has shown us. We have found that God can change lives in remarkable ways, and we want to show others the love He has shown us.
We would love you to be a part of our community's journey. And you don't have to believe, confess or act a certain way to come along. You already belong. Welcome home.
