THE CONTEXT

piotr zaremba, polandAlthough 95% of  people in Poland would identify themselves as Roman Catholic, many have never heard that God wants a personal relationship with them. 

Evangelicals - those who believe and preach a grace and relationship-based salvation as opposed to a rules or works-based salvation - are often viewed as a cult.

They are suspicious.  They are insane.

They are shunned.

Religious Affiliation in Poland, Evangelical Christians in Poland, Poland, ReligionThis means evangelism in Poland requires unique creativity, persistence and boldness.

Up until the Polish Bible Translation being done by Piotr and his team, the only translation of the Bible available in Polish was translated through the lens of a work-based salvation.

Years ago, Piotr was called by God to "Translate for Revival" so that his people would be able to read from God's Word that God wants a relationship with them based on God's own goodness, not theirs.

Piotr and his team of translators set out to produce a quality study tool in Polish, allowing people to “feed” themselves from God’s Word.

Piotr shares a misconception that is holding hostage the people of Poland.

Discipleship and Mission

As he worked on the Polish Bible Translation, Piotr's pastor heart saw many needs and opportunities to reach those around him who don't know that they can have a relationship with Jesus.

He began encouraging, equipping and empowering believers around him to work and eventually lead various ministries reaching several populations in Poland.

Today, there is a network of strong leaders driving powerful ministries under Piotr's oversight. These ministries are baptizing new believers all the time!

Since then, Piotr has played a vital role in planting five churches - four in Poznan and one in Gniezno.

Piotr’s other contributions to the church in Poland include: teaching Systematic Theology and Ethics in the Baptist Seminary, teaching Hebrew at Poznan State University, 17 years of translating and writing of Christian theological books, devotional and study materials, smuggling Bibles into the Soviet Union, and research conducted on the Minor Prophets Scroll found in the Judean Desert and the Psalms scrolls.
