Delhi Bible Fellowship began as a house church in 1968. TEAM missionary Murray Carter desired to plant a Bible-believing church in South Delhi which could be a potential home church for the people living in the area and also be a unifying influence for a number of evangelical organisations operating without strong local church support. DBF's first English service was held in Pastor Carter's living room in Nizamuddin, on the second Sunday of December 1968. Under God's grace and direction, Delhi Bible Fellowship grew and planted other churches so that there are currently 17 DBF congregations/worship services across Delhi and NCR.
Today, we are an evangelical church situated in the heart of India’s capital city. For us, the Word of God is our source of authority. It is through the Word that we become “wise for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ” (see 2 Tim. 3:15).
Our goal here in Delhi is to display God’s glory in all things, as the Lord Jesus taught us (see Matthew 5:16, John 13:35.) We believe we can do that best by building a community that glorifies God.
We gather together weekly on Sundays to encourage and equip each other. Delhi is a very multi-cultural setting, and this is reflected in our congregation being from many different parts of India and from different countries of the world. When we gather, it is a foretaste of heaven, when a great multitude of people from every nation, tribe, people and language will gather before the Lamb who was slain (see Rev. 7:9). Amid our diversity, the Good News of Jesus Christ is what unites us".
