• FOUNDATIONS

For a house to stand firm, it has to have a strong, firm foundation, because it’s the foundation that makes the base of a building, and guarantees its durability and resistance to storms.

The DOM has been built on a very deepand well thought-out foundation. We believe it makes a stable and strong DOM frame.

DEEP FAITH

A personal and deep relationship with God is the meaning of our existence.

We believe the Holy Bible is a perfect guide book for every area of our lives.

We like to talk to God (to pray) every day.

Ro 1: 17

DEVELOPMENT

We make constant and various investments in our personal and deep relationship with God. To get to know Him is only a beginning of a long journey; the relationship has to grow, and it requires time and discipline. We like our DOM meetings.

We all learn by ourselves, but we also know that our personal experiences with God could inspire others and enrich their lives, so we pass them down. We invest in other people and their faith. We like to drink coffee together.

1 Co 11: 1

SHARING YOUR FAITH

We share our personal and deep relationship with God with our friends and neighbours who still haven’t tasted it. This rule was the biggest motive to build the DOM. We like to give away soda to students.

Mt 28: 19

GENEROSITY

We practice and promote generosity on every possible level. We follow the example of God Himself, who gave His only Son for our sins. Our talents, smiles, money, abilities, time, help – these are only examples of areas on which we learn to be generous and to give abundantly. We like to make cakes.

2 Co 9: 6-8

INCLUSION

We want to be true DOM members who contribute to building and shaping our DOM. We prefer dedication, commitment (voluntary work) and participation in every DOM initiative over being just an observer or a receiver. We like our weekend DOM clean-up turns of duty.

Heb 10: 24-25

CONTEMPORANEITY AND QUALITY

We build our DOM with tools and forms known to the present-day receiver and used in everyday life. We like facebook.

We build it with a language that is understandable, clear and useful..

We build our DOM with our own generosity and with the best possible resources we can afford. We make every effort that all of our activities – from cleaning-up and preparing food, to Sunday preaching – would be of the best possible quality. Every activity intended for God and inspired by Him requires the best materials.

1 Co 9: 20-23

RELATIONSHIPS

In an age lacking in unselfish human bonds, we try to strengthen a foundation of strong and lasting relationships. We want to bring answers to the needs of those who struggle with loneliness or rejection. We like picnics by the river.

Joh 13: 34-45

INTEGRITY AND ACCEPTANCE

We want to be ourselves, to feel natural, without pretending anything or putting on any masks.

We learn not to judge or evaluate.

We build our DOM on the foundation of openness and acceptance of one another.

Joh 13: 34

GRATITUDE

Being surrounded by complaining and dissatisfaction, we intentionally promote a culture of gratitude. Every day is rich in small and big things for which we can express thankfulness to God and to others. We learn it. We like giving thanks. We like uttering words which simply encourage.

1 Th 5: 18
