Welcome to the Ecumenical Christian Fellowship of New Jersey
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Welcome to the website of the Ecumenical Christian Fellowship of New Jersey, U.S.A.! The quest for Christian unity in the world, "That they may all be one" (John 17:21), inspires the faith and shapes the life of the Ecumenical Christian Fellowship of New Jersey [ECFNJ]. Our prayer is that one day, the entire body of Christ, which is the Church, can once again come back together as one for the glorification of God.
ECFNJ comprises of 20 mainstream Asian Indian - Kerala Origin churches in New Jersey with origins in the South Indian State of Kerala. Kerala State has had a long history of Christianity since St. Thomas The Apostle came to Kerala, India in 52AD. Kerala State also has the largest percentage population of Christians in any state in India comprising roughly 30% of the total population. ECFNJ has been active in the United States since the 1970's under a loose organizational structure. Recent years have seen more organized activities by the Fellowship.
ECFNJ members work to promote understanding among Christians and greater unity among Christ’s people in New Jersey. As churches together, we are committed to a journey of peace and reconciliation for ourselves and our world, rediscovering our unity in the love of Christ in order that God's love and healing may be known to all.
Being together enables us to know God more deeply, to express a common voice on issues of concern in our community, and to work together on specific projects concerning the churches and the needs of our community around the world. We facilitate congregations, synods, and churchwide units among the Asian Indian - Kerala origin churches in New Jersey in their expressions of Christian unity in the faith and life of the church by offering events, resources and guidance.
ECFNJ is a registered Non-Profit Organization in the State of New Jersey.
