I help motivated Christians learn how to walk in fullness of identity and power so they can live in joyful freedom, have meaningful influence, and fulfill their dream with passion.
As a result, I write on identity (who you are), inheritance (what you have), and influence (what you can do).
Jesus Christ and His finished work has a central place in my writing and teaching. I’m a big fan and promoter of the simple Gospel:
- Jesus + something = nothing
- Jesus + nothing = everything
If you have a desire to make a lasting impact in the world by understanding God’s grace and live from your divine identity, walk in confidence and operate in God’s supernatural power, this site is for you!

I am not who I thought I was. I had wrong mindsets of beliefs which made my life not as free as it could have been. Through Bas’ teaching I realize that I am a new creation and pure, holy and righteous in God’s eyes. This understanding frees me up in so many ways that I can experience God in a whole new level. It’s like a start of a whole new adventure for me. I always wanted to live life to the fullest with God. Now I realize it is possible because of the finished work of the cross. I can live a fully free and satisfying life. – Rebecca Napier, England
After I graduated from the University of Utrecht with a masters in Environmental Science I moved to Amsterdam to do a DiscipleshipTraining School with Youth With A Mission (YWAM), an international missions organisation.
I’ve worked for ten years as a missionary with YWAM to help young people find their identity and destiny. Once I lead a group of students on a missions trip to Indonesia with a peculiar girl from Kansas City. An undying affection started brewing in our hearts. Friendship developed into romance, and a year later in April 2008 we married.
I live with my wife Michelle, our daughther Anouk and our son Lennon in Amsterdam. Currently I work as a missionary with different organisations and churches to make Jesus visible in the world. I am part of a company of preachers and practitioners who help transform people’s lives through declaring and demonstrating God’s grace and power.
The reason why I exist is:
- To enjoy Sonship
- To establish a healthy Family
- To communicate Grace in word and deed
In my free time I enjoy reading, running, family, and drinking black coffee with friends.

My struggle and victory
For many years I dreamed to work miracles and change the world. I wanted to live the prophetic words spoken out over my life. I wanted to make a lasting impact on people’s lives, but I didn’t see much happen. Why?
Due to a performance (law)-based mentality I was:
- Trying to become clean, holy, righteous and Christ-like (while I already am who I am in Christ).
- Begging God to come down (while He has already come down).
- Striving to get closer to God (while I am in perfect union with Him).
- Trying to obtain more “spiritual things” (while I am complete in Christ).
- Asking God to save, heal and deliver people (while He told me to do the works of Jesus).
I grew up with a mixture of Grace and Law. A deadly cocktail. Mixing Grace with Law is like drinking wine with rat poisoning. It kills your faith. Therefore, I didn’t experience the fullness of God’s love and power.
I’ve been awakened to God’s unconditional love by drinking the wine of the New Covenant of Grace that contains every divine pleasure and started to walk in fullness of sonship and operate in God’s supernatural power.
I regularly see people get saved, healed and delivered by God’s power working through me and others.
Realizing what Jesus did on the cross has set me free to be who I am called to be and to do all I am called to do.
Now I help Christians to walk in fullness of identity and power so that they can achieve their God-given dreams and maximize their impact.

What others are saying
Here is some love from a few people:
I have been a Christian for most of my life. Why have I never heard this before? It has truly liberated me from fear and condemnation. — DTS student, England
I never understood why people would want to die for the Gospel. I know it sounds big, but now, after I’ve heard the true Gospel explained in this week’s teaching, I can say that I am willing to die for the Gospel! — Carla, Germany
Now I understand what Christianity is all about. — Phil, Aruba
This teaching has given me so much peace and freedom. I didn’t know the truth of our identity in Christ was that simple, yet so profound. — Patrick, the Netherlands
I’ve heard many times about the importance of Jesus’ work on the cross, but now I really understand it in my heart and not just with my head. It was like, “Wow, I get.” A veil has been lifted and the Word of God has become more accessible to me. — Jeroen, the Netherlands
Now I know that I know, who I am in Christ. Thank you so much for sharing your insights and revelation with us. It has changed me forever. I am ruined for the ordinary. — DTS student, U.S.A.
