National Council of Churches - Bangladesh

Founded in 1949 as the East Pakistan Christian Council. It became the National Council of Churches - Bangladesh after the independence of the country in 1971.

Basis: The member churches hold the faith that the church ever held in Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the world, in whom men and women are saved by grace through faith, in accordance with the revelation of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They accept the holy scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as containing all things necessary to salvation and as the ultimate standard of faith.
