Our Charter

The National Evangelical (Presbyterian) Churches in Iraq and Syria have long histories of worship, education, and doing mission in the name of Jesus Christ and worshiping God following in the steps of ancient Christians in the Middle East. There are now three Presbyterian Churches in Iraq of the original five, the first established in Mosul in 1848 (now closed due to war).  The many Presbyterian Churches in Syria have been seriously affected by war and bombings and seek long-term prayer relationships with U.S. Presbyterian Churches.  Reaffirming the tenets of faith of our Presbyterian Churches, we emphasize that together we are called to deepen the bonds of unity, faith, and common witness between and among our churches in Iraq, Syria, and the United States; that we are called to be peacemakers, creating bonds of friendship and understanding between our peoples; that we are committed to sharing our gifts and resources with one another to strengthen the witness of our churches.  In walking the path of Christ together as one church, we seek to promote justice and reconciliation between our peoples, our governments, and our churches.
