Ethiopia Emmauel united church board
The Ethiopian Emmanuel United church(EUCE) was born and evolved out of the Ethiopian Orthodox traditional Coptic Church twenty years ago as a result of a God-initiated national movement of reformation throughout the nation for the first time in the history of Ethiopia. These movements have been going on inside the Coptic Church in many parts of the country. The strongest and relatively the organized one has begun in the town called Nazareth which is located 100 km far from the Capital Addis Ababa in the east direction. Then, persecution broke out and congregations has been formed outside of the church structure. Finally, with the spearheading role of Nazareth Emmanuel United Church, all movements which were taking place all over the country join and contribute their efforts to establish the Emmanuel United Church of Ethiopia.
Despite severe persecution, lack of proper training and limitations of logistics, the church has been able to grow to 300 local churches in all parts of the country with a total number of around 100,000 members. This result could only be realized due to the empowerment of the Holy Spirit and the sacrificial commitment of the ministers.
The church is legally registered with the government and the member of the evangelical churches fellowship of Ethiopia. EUCE is committed to remove disgrace from Ethiopia and bring God's salvation, healing and transformation to this nation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
