Organization

In 1969 Agapè started taking the initiative to reach people in the Netherlands with the love of Jesus Christ. Agapè is part of the international movement Cru. We want people to get in touch with their Heavenly Father. Our drive is that all people in the Netherlands get the chance to know Jesus in a personal way. To reach that goal, we mobilize Christians to make Jesus visible in our country.
Jesus says in Matthew 5:16: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
That means that every Christian may be a light in his or her place!
Agapè offers trainings, products and projects to churches and Christians to help and learn them to testify in our society.

Mission

All people in the Netherlands get the chance

Prayer

Reading the Bible and prayer are the foundation to win, build and send for our mission.

Relationship

On average someone needs 7 years to get to know Jesus in a personal way. That’s why we believe in a way of evangelization which is based on having a relationship with people. Share the gospel in a meaningful relationship as a Christian.

null

Multi-conceptional

We would like for people to get in touch with the gospel in different ways. That’s why Agapè is found in different places: on sports fields, at universities, in cities and online. We approach people in a way they can relate to, that’s why we are oriented on target groups. We work with different movements like Athletes in Action and StudentLife.

Discipleship

Discipleship is the process where someone wants to follow Jesus and dedicate his life to Him. In short: doing what Jesus taught us to do. This process takes place in a local church or community: a group of Christians who all want to follow Jesus. Agapè offers churches and communities support through trainings and materials.

Innovation

This world is always changing. That’s why we are constantly looking for new ways to share the truth of the gospel with others.
