Dear Members, Partners and visitors of our website
Wishing you a blessed and a happy Ethiopian New Year, I hereby would like to welcome you to the redesigned website of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY).
We thank God for his enormous blessings we experienced during the last Ethiopian year, 2007. The lord indeed has blessed us with a wide door of ministry in the midst of challenging circumstances, through which we achieved very fruitful results. Many of the strategic goals of the church have been met successfully. We have achieved an increment of 650,000 in membership in one year alone. I hope that the Ethiopian new year, 2008, will also be a year of great harvest, prosperity and blessing.
We believe that you all are acquainted to the EECMY through visiting our former website. The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus is an indigenous national Lutheran Church currently consisting of 7.3 million baptized members. Since her establishment in the last six decades, the EECMY, through her ministry to the whole person, has been carrying out various developmental and social work services in parallel to her evangelistic work. These services have greatly contributed to the Ethiopian society at large . Through the previous website, these activities had been communicated to you, her viewers. At present we are compelled to revise this media to match with the rapidly changing technological advancements.
Thus I hereby would like to introduce you to this site which we have rebuilt to meet the needs of our visitors making use of the current technological developments. This new initiative is to provide our viewers better access to our visitors to easily browse information, news and reports. The main purpose of this website is to promote the kingdom of God in advancing the strategic goal of the church, through communicating information of the activities of the church, to edify her own members and bring the Good News to those who are in spiritual darkness. We hope that it will enable the visitors to find and share resources trouble-free.
I therefore, would like to thank you very much for your interest in sharing our blessing and welcome you once again to this revised website of the EECMY. I hope you will find it interesting as well as beneficial. Please enjoy it! Feel free to share with us any suggestions or ideas that may improve the quality of our website. May God bless you all richly. Wishing you prosperous and happy new year.
Berhanu Ofgaa, Dr/Rv.
General Secretary of the EECMY
