Who We Are

Home   Who We Are

Christian Family Fellowship International Church is a Church ministry of Christ for India, an interdenominational nonprofit Christian organization founded in 1962 by Rev. Dr. and Mrs. Manuel Fernando. Christ for India has reached multitudes with the gospel of Jesus Christ, fulfilling the Lord’s command “work while it is day.”

Christ for India has a consuming passion to spread the Gospel to men and women in the remotest parts of India through orphanages, child sponsorship programs, churches, mass crusades, Bible distribution, multimedia and gospel literature.

We are a Spirit filled church.  We believe that all the gifts of the Spirit are fully functional and relevant in the life of the believer today.

Our commitment has never wavered.  We exist to reach families for Christ and to make every effort to bring families to the Lord, maintaining a close fellowship in Christian love by ministering to various needs of families and individuals facing problems, hurts and sickness through prayer and solid Christian counsel while building a fellowship founded on God’s Holy Word.
We are strongly missions oriented; focusing on the vision God has given us both home and abroad, and providing opportunities to join world outreach ministries through team work.

Our staff  are committed followers of Jesus Christ, dedicated to service for the Kingdom. We are here to encourage and help others also build a strong commitment to the Jesus Christ, creating a sense of unity in the body of Christ, while cultivating love and understanding as members of the family of God.
We are keenly aware of the part we can play in sharing God’s love to a lost and dying world.  It is our desire to establish these objectives by emphasizing the importance of a regular prayer life for each church member and to walk with the Lord by the help of the Holy Spirit.
