REGISTRATION OF A NEW CHARTER CHURCH
As many of you may be aware, it is not easy for churches to be registered with the Croatian government. One of the requirements is that a church must have 500 members to register! Without official registration, they lack the legal rights to several activities such as marrying or burying their members. Mario, for the past several years, has made it possible for many smaller churches to register with the government through our church. These are not sister churches of our church in the sense that they are our denomination and carry the same name, DNA, and vision; rather they are more like a charter church (or loose fellowship). This month we had the privilege of signing on one more church from Varaždin, “Svijetlo svijeta” (Light of the World). We love Pastor Zdenko Horvat and genuinely believe in the wonderful work his church doing in Varaždin.
