WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?
Our faith is based solely on the Bible. The entire Bible is the infallible Word of God and is for all matters and practice decisive for us. God is eternal - without origin or end – as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The triune God is the creator of all things.
Jesus Christ is everlasting God and true human. He gave his life on behalf of our sins. After His death He rose bodily, ascended to heaven, and will come again in His time.
Every person receives forgiveness for his sins and everlasting life by placing his faith in Jesus Christ. A person’s salvation is possible only by God's mercy, as a gift, through personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Everlasting life can’t be earned. One doesn't get it through infant baptism, through family heritage, nor through an affiliation to a church.
The Holy Spirit is a person of the Godhead. He convicts the world of sin, leads individuals to repent and believe. He gives the rebirth, the new life from God and membership into the body of Jesus Christ.
Dr. J. Todd Hudson is the founding Pastor of Immanuel Bible Church since 2001. Pastor Todd is American-born and first visited Austria shortly after finishing his undergraduate college education. On that trip, he gained a deep love for the country and the people.
Todd studied at four American universities: Bob Jones University, the University of Iowa, the University of Colorado-Boulder, and Harvard University. After completing master’s and doctoral degrees,
he and his wife Sarah served for one year founding a seminary in Cameroon, West Africa; served on pastoral staff in New Hampshire; and returned to Austria to start a church in Vienna. The Hudsons are committed to serving the people of Immanuel by providing teaching and preaching for the whole family, pointing to Christ as both Savior and sustainer of life. Todd and Sarah celebrate 20 years in Vienna and 25 years of marriage. They have four children.
