Message From Our Pastor

Pastor Melaku Teketel,

Thank you for visiting our web site. On behalf of our entire church family I extend to you the warmest welcome.

It is a geat privelage and, it gives me a great joy to be part of such a loving spiritual community. I am humbled being entrusted with the leadership of this great church. My wife joins me in saying; we are delighted to have this opportunity to serve in this place at this time. We pray that each of us individually; will be the church that Jesus is looking for when he returns, a church without a spot or wrinkle.

Come worship with us!  Here at the Ethiopian Evangelical Christian Church, we have a strong heritage of dynamic Amharic worship, beautiful music, programs for fellowship and education, and a strong commitment for children and youth focus on growing in faith, friendship, and service.

Our desire is that many, many people will come to know and experience the unconditional love of God.  The greatest demonstration of that love was when God gave His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins on the cross and raised Him from the grave.  Therefore, the forgiveness of sin is freely available to every single person who will accept Christ as Savior and Lord.

I invite you to worship and service our Lord Jesus Christ with us at the Ethiopian Evangelical Christian Church here in Austin, Texas!

Pastor Melaku Teketel
