Edavaka Mission

Edavaka Mission has a prominent role in spreading the Gospel and leading the mission activities of the parish. The functioning of this organisation is based on the motto ‘Every Marthomite is an evangelist’ and it was called to promote various activities of the parish such as  Intercessory prayer, extending Christian fellowship.  This vision was foreseen by His grace the Late Abraham Mar Thoma Metropolitan and formed Edavaka Mission. The branch of the Mar Thoma voluntary evangelists association in the parish is called "Edavaka mission".

Every Marthomite has the responsibility to implant faith in God in the hearts of the world. One of the highest goals in our lifetime is to understand more about God and show Him to others. Evangelization is spreading the gospel and strengthening others with the words of God. All of us are preparing our minds for the second coming of Jesus. During that time we are trying to renew our relationship with our Lord which we lost at Eden and regained through Jesus. To enrich our relationship with God, we need to engage our hearts in prayer.

St John's MTC Edavaka mission is trying to engage the hearts of it’s believers with Bible teachings, sharing the experiences in God, and intercessory prayer for the souls that are in agony. The Edavaka Mission members visit the sick and the needy to give spiritual fellowship.

Edavaka Mission meetings are held on Friday evenings at the residence of our members. In the meetings, our Vicar gives leadership for Bible study. In the absence of the Vicar, Bible studies are led by members or lay leaders. Intercessory prayers are an integral part of these sessions.

For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.

Romans 8:3-4
