Hope India Mission (Emmanuel Christian Fellowship Center) is a missionary organization dedicated to bringing the Life transforming message of Jesus Christ to the 600 million people of North India. With a vision ‘to reach the unreached and tell the untold’ , this mission is reaching out to thousands of un-reached people groups under the immense leadership of its founder Pastor E.A. Abraham. Our activities are exclusively focused on Church Planting, Leadership Training, Compassion & Education Ministry and all other opportunities where we get a chance to interact with the people of different caste and religion that help us to convey God’s love and affection. Currently, we are functioning from Patna (the capital of the State of Bihar).
Pastor Abraham established Emmanuel Christian Fellowship Center (ECFC) in 1984. In the United States, ECFC goes by the name of Hope India Mission (HIM), a 501c3 non-profit organization.
Mission and Vision : Reach the Unreached and Tell the Untold
ECFC/HIM is a Christ-centered ministry committed to:
Reaching and proclaiming the Good News to everyone who has a spiritual thirst and establish a witness for our Lord in eery tongue, tribe, and specifically among the unreached ethnic communities of North India.
Training Pioneer Workers by equipping men and women for the ministry through Bibles Course, Leadership Training and Pastoral Internship Programs, all which prepare those called as dedicated church planters.
Strengthening the cycle of evangelization in mission centers, serve widows, poorest of the poor, orphaned and children-at-risk and restore their broken lives by meeting their spiritual, emotional, educational and practical needs and training them to imitate the same by bringing the Gospel to those in their own villages who have not received it yet.
Building the newly established churches as the Lighthouses of the respective community. The sustained and established churches will be centers of spiritual union, learning and modeling to the freshly initiated daughter churches.
