About Us.

The Ethiopian Full Gospel Believers' Church is an indigenous Pentecostal Church started by young university students 56 years back from now. In those successive years the revival broke throughout the country. Since then, the revival inundated the whole country the provincial towns, small towns and villages in the country side. This brought the issue that the believers had to form unity on a national level and be organized as a denomination. In 1974, leaders from different places of the country came and agreed to be organized at a denominational level.The national office of the church is established in Addis Ababa and the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia accorded the church its full recognition on November 10, 1991 in accordance with the constitutional provision of the religious liberty and freedom of worship.
