Stories from the church

Hear what people experience

Here you can meet some of the people from the congregation and hear how God has transformed their lives as well as the importance our church has for them.

I had been searching for a church before I moved to Odense and I found this church on the internet that seemed welcoming and a good choice for internationals as they have translation during the service. It was important for me to find a good community where I can learn more about following Jesus and this is exactly what I found. This church is God’s provision for me; these people help me get through the struggles of living abroad and I can thank a lot to them. I’m attending the services because I can learn about God’s Word and His love through these kind people who want to serve each other. I attend Basic (the youth group) as well where we study the Bible, pray for each other and laugh a lot. These times mean so much to me and I can call these young people my great friends.

I came to Odense Baptist Church during Christmas. A neighbor had invited me to the café's Christmas lunch. Actually, I was very close to saying "no thanks" to the invitation, because I actually didn't have any energy for it. I was somewhere in my life where one thing after another just fell down over my head. I was burned out, deeply unhappy and tired. I simply had no more strength left in me. Today I thank my God that I went. When I came home, I had a nice feeling of peace and quiet in me. A feeling I hadn't felt the last 10 years.


I returned to the church in January and started at the Church's Alpha Course. Here I learned to know Jesus, and I heard a Bible verse: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest". All that I had carried by myself, I now put into God's hands and later I was also baptized.


I just have it so great today. All of this I had not been able to get through myself. I have a great and lovely family in the congregation. I have received so many lovely prayers and support from here. There is always someone who is ready for talking. Here is so much unity and warmth, and someone to share life with. You are never lonely or alone here.
