Myanmar Council of Churches

Founded in 1949 as Burma Christian Council, which became Burma Council of Churches in 1972 and was renamed Myanmar Council of Churches in 1989 (forerunner: the Burma Regional Council under the National Christian Council of India, Burma & Ceylon founded in 1914).

Basis: To be a member, a church must believe in the Triune God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as being testified by the holy scriptures, the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed, and believe that the Bible gives the way to salvation for all humankind.

There are more than thirty regional and local councils of churches in seven states and seven divisions throughout the country.
