Biblical foundation in East Timor
ICC Note: Update on East Timor, one of two Christian nations in Southeast Asia
6/25/10 East Timor (MNN) ― … East Timor occupies the east side of the island containing Indonesian West Timor, with much of its inhabitants practicing a mix of Catholicism and native traditional religion.
Many lack a strong biblical foundation, which makes the Timorese susceptible to false doctrines and the acceptance of Islamic influence. To prevent this clouding of their faith, Biblica is using their program “Children for Christ” (C4C) to reach the children of East Timor, train the church in children’s ministry, and encourage family participation in church.
