What is Greeks for Christ?
Greeks For Christ International (GFCI) is an association of Greek believers in Jesus Christ in many countries of the world. Established in 1974 in California, the ministry of GFCI is threefold:
1. To promote an understanding that there is a growing movement of Greek people who believe in the testimony of the Holy Scriptures and Church History, that Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, is the Savior of the world.
2. To bring together Greek and non-Greek believers of like faith and mind, who share the vision for a Greek spiritual revival.
3. To introduce our Greek people to Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit, that they will come to put their trust in God through Him, accept Him as their Savior, and serve Him as their Lord in the fellowship of His Church.
