National Council of Churches of Singapore

Founded in 1974 (forerunners: the Council of Churches of Malaysia and Singapore founded in 1961, and the Malayan Christian Council of 1948).

Basis: The National Council of Churches of Singapore is founded on a common belief that God has revealed his eternal purpose for humankind in his Son, Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the supreme standard of Christian faith and practice, and that the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds express our historical common faith; and as an association of churches and other Christian organizations, each believing that it is Christ's will that his body, the church, should again be visibly one, and each desiring to work towards this end.
