Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost – Matt 28:19
The United Arab Emirates has over the years drawn people from all corners of the globe to its borders for work. The expatriate workforce consists of both individuals & families and is a melting pot of cultures from the East to the West. This, while being good for growing the economy of the country, has also brought with it a host of other maladies like loneliness, brokenness, yearning for spiritual fulfillment and a need for comfort and peace, among many other issues, for the people working here. Senior Pastors Rev. Dr. Ashish Thomas & Rev. Rekha Thomas saw this need, particularly among the Russian community, and in love and fellowship reached out to bridge this gap and lead the people to God’s healing grace and salvation. Thus the Russian Church was founded in 2001.
The Russian Church is the only full gospel church that ministers to the Russian community in Dubai and is like a home away from home. The praise and worship sessions as well as ministering of the Word are in the Russian language, which is the most widespread of the Slavic languages. The Word of God is taught clearly and based on the Word, the messages are preached. We have seen God’s abundant grace being poured over the congregation bringing miracles, healing and the transformation of lives.
