Parish Mission


“To prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”    Ephesians 4: 12 -13

The Church Mission (Edavaka Mission) is the local chapter of the Mar Thoma Voluntary Evangelists Association (MTVEA). Every Marthomite is expected to be a true witness to Jesus Christ and sharing the joy of salvation where ever they are placed. MTVEA was established in the year 1924 with this very purpose in view. The first general secretary was Moothampackal Sadhu Kochukunju Upadeshi.


The purpose of the Voluntary Evangelistic Association is to witness to the saving grace of Jesus Christ and to be participants in the building of the Kingdom of God and to prepare every member of the Church in that supremely noble task.



The Edavaka Mission has a sevenfold program:

  • Intercession
  • Bible study
  • Witnessing and sharing Christian experiences
  • House Visit
  • Helping the needy
  • Work among non – Christians
  • Prayer Group Activities
