YBC is a very young church planted in cooperation with Elim church of Stockholm. YBC firmly believes in the study of God's word and the practice of its principles. We believe that the church is God's chosen instrument through which the message of salvation is spread to all people.

The Great Commission reveals the reason God has left us here in this world and it is the primary task of the church until our Lord returns as the King of kings. The Lord Jesus desires us to go everywhere proclaiming the love of God to a lost world.
YBC is devoted to the advancement of the Kingdom of God and seeks to attain this through the preaching of the Gospel. Exercising His authority and demonstrating His power, we are determined to preach the Gospel, make disciples, baptize and teach people to obey all the commands of Christ the King. The Lord wants us to continue as His agents to redeem and transform the lives of people. Thus we proclaim the gospel so that people will respond to an invitation that may change their life for eternity because of a new relationship with our Lord. We believe that church planting is an integral part of God's strategy for reaching a lost world. We want to cooperate with Him in the expansion of His kingdom. We are asking God to birth in us new compassion for those who are perishing without Christ. We need to reach out to all who are marching blindly to everlasting death.
With God's help and with the power of the Holy Spirit, we will reach many and declare the good news. We will use every effective biblical method and apply the truth in a culturally relevant way.

 

» Reasons WHY YBC is planted?

1. Because of the vision and the burden God gave to us (Isa 6:8, Rom 1:14-16). We want to be obedient to the Lord (Matt 28: 19-20).
2. The need - the primary reasons are the lost people who need to hear the Gospel (Mark 16:15).
3. We believe that it is the most effective tool for evangelism anywhere (Acts 14:23, 6:7). Church planting is the Great Commission at its best.
4. New churches produce more ministry leaders and tend to grow faster than older churches (Acts 16:5, 14:23). Multiplication is at the heart of church planting (Acts 2:47, 16:5).
5. To work with God. It is something only God can do (with human instrument).
6. A desire and passion to reach lost people for Christ.
We believe that this difference in value, style and structure will help to enhance the work of evangelism among the Abesha group in Sweden.

» STATEMENT OF FAITH

·   We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God.
·   We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 
·   We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
·   We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful men.
·   We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live the Godly life.
·   We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost.
·   We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ by how we love one another.

» CORE VALUES

1. Bible: We believe that the Bible is the inerrant, infallible, inspired Word of God and is the final authority. We believe that there is only One true God revealed in three persons- Father, Son and the Holy Spirit (the Trinity).
2. Authentic worship: We desire to acknowledge God's supreme value and worth in our personal lives, private and corporate worship.
3. Prayer: We believe and rely on private, group and congregational prayer in the conception, planning and execution of all the ministries and activities of the church (Matt. 7: 7-10).
4. Passionate Evangelism: It is the instruction of our Lord to go to the ends of the earth and make disciples of all nations. Our mission is to reach the unreached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and church planting. Together we join our hands with other christians to reach the unreached (Matt 24:14, Acts 1:8, 2 Cor 10:15-16). All members of the church are involved in personal evangelism.
5. Kingdom minded : Our focus is on the Kingdom of God. We are called to link together with other groups in the body of Christ and pursue unity as we reach the world together (Matt 6:33, Ephe 4:1-6, John 17, Psalm 133). The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the church and we submit to His leadership and Word to expand His kingdom.
6. Multiplication and reproduction: Multiplication should be expected and encouraged in every sphere of church life. Small groups should multiply into small churches. Multiplication is part of the DNA that runs through the new church. It is part of the very fabric that drives the new church.
7. Godly servant leadership: The leadership philosophy is basically pastoral. Team work is central and the five offices are actively working in their respective areas. Servant leadership is emphasized. Leaders are expected to empower others for the work of the kingdom.
8. Bible-centered teaching and preaching: We believe that bible centered teaching and preaching is a very important and key factor in discipleship. We strive to teach God's Word with integrity and authority so seekers find Christ and believers mature in Him (2 Tim 3:16).
9. Warm fellowship: We are committed to the Great Commandment to strengthen christian unity and love.
10. Family: We support the spiritual nurture of the family as one of God's dynamic means to perpetuate the christian faith (2 Tim 1:5).
11. Small groups: We encourage all our members to commit to and fully participate in biblical functioning small groups where they may reach the lost, exercise their gifts, be shepherd and grow in Christ likeness (Acts 2: 44-46). Every member is a priest and a minster of the living God.

6. » BASIC FUNCTIONS

The purpose is fulfilled through four basic functions:
6. 1. Worship : We worship God through singing songs, praise, adoration, testimonies, obedience and proclamation of His word. We embrace worship as one of the central ways we live out our christian faith. We worship through a variety of traditional, blended and contemporary styles.
6.2. Evangelism: reaching the world around us with the gospel of the risen Lord through personal and group evangelism, mass media, preaching in church, cell groups, outreaches, planting churches and crusades.
6.3 Discipleship: teaching individual believers to become less self-centered and more like Christ- to become imitators of our Lord. We envision a church that develops to spiritual maturity through teaching the word of God, Bible studies, training and prayer.
6.4 Fellowship: building relationships, and creating unity and love for each other with the commitment to both the great commandment (Matt. 22:37-40) and the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20). Regardless of our numbers, we strive to notice needs and heal hurts, both for other and for ourselves. We affirm a role of both caregivers and burden bearers.
