Get to know us

We are an Evangelical Christian ministry, with the goal of sharing Jesus’ Good News of the Kingdom with speakers of the Celtic languages and other minority languages in Western Europe. The Celtic Languages Team is a branch of Linguæ Christi, a registered charity in the England and Wales (#1169811).

Our Vision – By God’s power, we will join Him in bringing glory to Himself through the announcement and expansion of His Kingdom and the making of disciple-making disciples of Jesus among the speakers of the Celtic languages.

Mission Statement – The birth, growth, and ongoing reproduction of indigenous, multiplying, self-sustaining, New Testament communities of faith (churches) would be both the natural outcome and evidence of the fulfillment of the Vision.

Statement of Beliefs

We Believe In…

The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.

The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgment.

The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.

The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.

The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers—given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.

The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfill the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgment, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
