IFFEC President’s Greetings on EFCI’s International Day
Greetings from the IFFEC President
on the occasion of the EFCI’s “International Day”
August 16, 2013
On behalf of the member federations, federation leaders, and churches of the International Federation of Free Evangelical Churches, we give our warm greetings to all of our brothers and sisters of the Evangelical Free Church of India as you celebrate this day in which your federation became a member of IFFEC.
We thank God for the advance of God’s Kingdom work through your faithful witness in word and deed to the Good News of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We thank God for all the ways in which people in India are coming to know Jesus Christ and growing deeply in Christ through your faithful discipleship. And we thank God that you as a body are committed to working together in faithful community with federations from the Free Church heritage all around the world. The Apostle Paul constantly encouraged the churches he had planted to celebrate and to be encouraged by the work of God in churches all around the world. As Paul reminded the church in Colossi, in the same way the Gospel is growing and bearing fruit throughout the whole world. Col. 1:6
We thank God for our partnership with you through the International Federation of Free Evangelical Churches. We pray for the Evangelical Free Church of India a time of fruitful harvest that will glorify our Lord Jesus Christ even as we serve in a partnership that spans God’s world.
Yours in Christ,
International Federation of Free Evangelical Churches
