Malawi Council of Churches

Founded in 1942 as Christian Council of Nyasaland, Christian Council of Malawi as of 1964, changed to Malawi Council of Churches in 1998 (forerunner: Consultative Board of Federation Missions, founded in 1939).

Basis of membership: The members of the Malawi Council of Churches are united in confessing the faith to which the church, the body of Christ, has ever witnessed in the one triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; worshipping the Father revealed to humanity in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, owing obedience to Jesus Christ as the way, the truth and the life, trusting the guidance of the holy and labouring for the advancement of the kingdom of God through the word. The Council accepts the holy scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the record of God's revelation of himself to humanity, as containing all things necessary for salvation, and as being the ultimate standard of faith and conduct.
