Council of Churches in Zambia

Founded in 1945 as the Christian Council of Northern Rhodesia, which became the Christian Council of Zambia in 1964, and the Council of Churches in Zambia in 2003 (forerunner: the General Missionary Conference of Northern Rhodesia, founded in 1914).

Basis: To be a member a church must confess the Lord Jesus as Lord and Saviour according to Scripture and therefore seek to cooperate with other Christians who confess the same Lord in fulfilling their common tasks of witnessing to the glory of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
