Evangelical Church

Evangelical Church of the Transfiguration.

The interior of the church includes the tombstone, which I presented in the blog here.

Evangelical Church is the whole of historical buildings situated next door. These are the buildings of the former Franciscan monastery, which was founded in 1297 years. They are the oldest buildings in Nowy Sacz.
The fate of these buildings over the years have been very volatile.
Nowy Sacz was established in 1292. But at least one hundred years ago at the site of Nowy Sacz existent village called tenement.

  1. They are beautiful. Remarkable that they survived the Cold War.

    1. I say that only so many survived to our times. A lot of objects not survived to our times. Contributed to the devastation of World War I, World War II, and earlier still a lot of wars in the Middle Ages and later centuries.

  2. Beautiful buildings and great photos too! Nowy Sacz must be a very interesting town!

    1. Nowy Sacz is much older than American cities, but much, much younger than the Greek civilization. :)

  3. Some beautiful buildings. I'd guess there aren't many Evangelical churches in the town, though. And I appreciated the history lesson. The town has been around a very long time!

  4. It's a pretty church, I agree with Lowell, there are probably very few Evangelical churches around. I had a look at the tomb but Google won't translate it for me :-(...

    1. @ Lowell, Yvelines
      This is the only evangelical church in the area. The dominant religion is Christianity, of course in Poland, Roman Catholic, but in Nowy Sacz there are many other small groups and religious sects.
      Ten kościółek ewangelicki jest jedynym w okolicy. Dominującą religią jest oczywiście w Polsce chrześcijaństwo rzymsko katolickie, ale w Nowym Saczu jest wiele innych małych grup i odłamów religijnych.
      Link to the tombstone located in the chapel I placed a long time ago. Many residents of my city does not know of its existence, does not know Jan Debek Łowczowski (the founder of the chapel) and they wanted to show it. I think slowly you get more information on the blog.

  5. That pretty pictures, I like this church, nice dome!


    What does the washing of water found in Ephesians 5:26 mean? Should you, as a believer in Christ, look to creed books and Bible commentaries for the answer to that question or should you look to translations of the Bible for truth? Do you want to trust men or do you want to trust God's written word?

    Ephesians 5:25-26...just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for it, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (NKJV)

    How did Christ sanctify and cleanse the church? The church is the body of Christ. The church is comprised of Christians. How did Christ sanctify and cleanse the church?

    Ephesians 5:26 to make her holy and clean, washed by baptism and God's word;(The Living Bible- Paraphrased)

    Ephesians 5:26 that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word, (KJV)

    Ephesians 5:26 in order to make her holy, cleaning her with the baptismal water by the Word. (Weymouth New testament)

    Ephesians 5:26 He did this to make her holy by washing her in a bath of water with the word. (Common English Bible)

    Ephesians 5:26 He made the church holy by the power of his word, and he made it pure by washing it with water.(Contemporary English Version)

    Ephesians 5:26 In order that he might sanctify it, purifying [it] by the washing of water by [the] word, (Darby Translation)

    Ephesians 5:26 He died to make the church holy. He used the telling of the Good News to make the church clean by washing it with water. (ERV-Easy-to-Read-Version)

    Ephesians 5:26 He did this to make the church holy by cleaning it,washing it using water along with the spoken words. (God's Word Translation)

    Ephesians 5:26 He did this to dedicate the church to God by his word, after making it clean by washing it in water, (Good News Translation)

    Ephesians 5:26 He did this to make the church holy by cleansing it, washing it using water alone with the spoken words. (Names of God Bible)

    Ephesians 5:26 so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, (New American Standard Bible)

    Ephesians 5:26 He did that so that he might make the church people holy, when they were washed with water by God's word. (World English N.T.)

    Do you really want leave the interpretation of Ephesians 5:26 to others,why would you not read it and believe what it says?

    Is God smart enough to guide men to accurately translate the Bible?

    Two choices: 1. Trust God's written word, the BIBLE. or 2. Trust preachers, priests, pastors, Bible commentators, the man on the street, your friends and relatives or creed books, for the truth and nothing but the truth.

    Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved....(NKJV)
