About BICC

The Budapest Institute for Contemporary Christianity (BICC) is established following the example of The London Institute for Contemporary Christianity but taking into consideration of the typical Hungarian circumstances. We have similar goals and identical theological principles. We are supporting and advocating the whole life discipleship model, and want to be a catalyst in the establishment of it among Hungarians.

Most important goals of The Budapest Institute for Contemporary Christianity are to

  • Give inspiration to the churches and help them to fulfill their mission more effectively
  • Reach out for the Hungarian society in order to connect them with the churches
  • Educate and equip for whole life discipleship
  • Uphold and stand for the evangelical theology on the highest level in Hungary (cultural apologetic courses and theological workshops)
  • Supply the resources and reference books for the ministry (dissemination)
  • Work for the unity among the evangelical people and organizations

This center is characterized as:

  • Budapest, symbolizing the center of the life in Hungary. We might follow the example of other Christian ministries or models, but always apply them to the Hungarian circumstances and we would like to encourage and emphasize original, homegrown ideas.
  • Contemporary, which means that our target area is the present Hungarian society as we are trying to give adequate answers to the real problems of our days.
  • Christian, which refers to our root, declaring clearly our spiritual scale of values we are measured with and based upon.
  • Institute, meaning, it is not a temporary association or committee, but an organization established for long standing operation.
