Eastern Protestant Churches

The Protestant Eastern Churches are characterized by the celebration of their services according to the Eastern rite but are as far as their teaching is concerned shaped by Reformation creeds. They go back to the missionary work of Anglican, Lutheran, or Reformed missionaries. In most cases, a small number of groups of faithful belong to one of these churches. The following should be mentioned by name:

  • Armenian Evangelical Church
  • Assyrian Evangelical Church
  • Coptic Evangelical Church
  • Mar Thoma Church in India
