National Council of Churches in Pakistan

Founded in 1948 as the West Pakistan Christian Council, which became the National Council of Churches in Pakistan in 1975 (forerunner: the North West India Christian Council).

Basis of membership: The council is the representative organization of the Protestant churches and missions working in Pakistan, and which hold the following faith of confession: "We hold the faith that the Church has 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 - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We accept the holy scripture of the New and Old Testament as containing all things necessary to salvation, as the ultimate standard of faith."
