Province of Reconciliation
☩☩Charles Travis
Unity in the Body of Christ - the world being able to see that we truly love one another and serve one another -  is the key to reaching this world for Christ.  Jesus meant what He said in John 17.

Bishop Primus Elect
☩☩John Sathiyakumar
I take the words of the prophet very seriously : “Where there is no vision people perish.”   Vision and mission are the great priorities for any church or organization.

General Secretary
☩☩Robert Gosselin
Our diversity is supposed to be our strength, not a cause for division.  Jesus calls us to communion with one another, not just with Him.  We have a greater call to unity … a greater mission to accomplish.

3 Reasons the CEEC Church in Pakistan Grows In Difficult Times

Bishop Hizkiel has been recognized as a leader by his peers for many years, and has often stepped in to difficult circumstances with a voice of optimism, reason and hope.  Today, as he leads the CEEC Diocese that has been known locally since 1947 as the Episcopal Church Pakistan, he faces many challenges. 

"We face all of the difficulties one might anticipate of a small group of Christians living in a country ruled by a different culture," says Bishop Hizkiel, "but we face each day with a determination to let the love of Isa al-Masih shine through our words and our actions. We are against no one, we are simply a people called to love those around us with a love that comes from Him. His love truly changes lives. As such, it rules our lives, our actions and our relationships with everyone we meet."

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is the only country to have been created in the name of Islam. The CEEC has Christian communities growing in close to a dozen cities, including the capital city of Islamabad and also Karachi, Pakistan's largest city. 

The Bishop says there are three reasons they continue to grow in this nation where persecution is a fact of life for every believer.
