What is the Ethnic Church Directory?
This directory includes Christian church congregations that focus on a particular
ethnic people group, or groups. Usually the congregation will have a primary emphasis
on first or second-generation immigrants throughout the year.
Many of the nations have come to America and Canada. We can participate in the mission
to have representatives from all nations (ethne, ethnic people groups, tribes) worshiping
the Lord Jesus Christ before the throne.
- Help people of other cultures, and especially immigrants, find an appropriate church
- There are some directories that focus on a denomination, one particular ethnic group,
or a small geographical area. This directory strives to span those boundaries and
provide a "big picture" high level view of what God is doing among the nations.
- Help link individuals and organizations with similar interests and missions
- Help people understand the wonderful ways God is working among the nations right
here within our own region
- Participate in God's mission and desire to have a loving, covenant relationship
with all nations
