Church Affliation

Church Affilation

We are all on a journey. The very nature of every journey is that you end up some place other than where you started. We know that many believers and churches have travelled a similar journey as we have and are looking to be part of a like-minded, Christ-centered body of churches.

Whatever way God might be calling you, your church can be part of a dynamic, growing ancient-future movement; we invite you to consider if God might be calling you to be part of Council of Reformed Churches of India. Seeking to walk the narrow way as a church is never easy, but it’s much more difficult when you try to do it alone. Grounded and growing in the orthodox trail, we can help you find the balance of adhering to the ancient faith while taking that faith in a powerful way to a generation who must know Christ.

If you sense the Lord calling you to be a part of Council of Reformed Churches of India, we ask that you take the first step in that process and prayerfully learn more about our church. Step one of our four-step process will help you and us discern if it’s God’s will for you to be part of us.

STEP 1 : Learn

Please learn about us!

We ask that you start with the About and Our Churches sections on our website. Next, there are our Church Manual that we believe will be extremely helpful in the discernment process before applying for affiliation. We believe it’s really important for you to understand who and what we are as a church before moving forward.

To learn more about us, please read in entirety the following sections of our website:
