Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Russian Church of Evangelical Faith Christians we wish you Happy Easter! Christ is Risen! The triumphant message of the Resurrection brings joy and reminds of the greatest miracle, ‘that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and he was buried and … he rose again on the third day according to the scriptures...’ (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).

MOSCOW (RUSSIA) - On Friday, June 24, 2016, Russia's State Duma approved a final pakage of several anti-terrorist laws suggested by deputy Irina Yarovaya and Senator Viktor Ozerov. It has already been recognized as some of the harshest and most repressive legislation in post-Soviet history that Russian lawmakers voted on.

Dear Friends! Joyfully we celebrate Passover, the time when the Lord granted us freedom from slavery of sin. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us and rose from the dead! (1 Cor. 5:7)

We pray the resurrection of Jesus Christ and His life abide in each of us, for only in Him we find hope and a future.

May the Passover of Jesus Christ become real in lives of our loved ones and the peace of God and His grace rest in your hearts! Happy Easter!

With love and prayers,

Edward Grabovenko

On behalf of the Russian Christians we offer deep condolences to all who have been under terrorist attacks, and who have lost their loved ones. We grieve and pray for the families of the deceased and for the injured. May the Lord restore their mental strength, comfort their hearts and heal physical wounds. Also, our prayers today for those servants who are on duty, facing this evil and ensuring safety of the citizens. May the Lord strengthen their hearts and give courage.

The fast started on January 11 and will conclude on January 31.

Head Bishop Edward Grabovenko about the fast of Daniel on January 11 to 31, 2016:

«Dear brothers and sisters, the fast of Daniel in the the beginning of each year became a special blessing for us, it is an opportunity to unite in humility before God.

I would like to encourage you to start 2016 with fast and prayer to worship the Lord, to see His glory in our families, churches, cities, and throughout our country.

Dear Brothers and Sisters!

With gratefulness in our hearts we approach the celebration of Christmas that reminds us of God’s love, forgiveness and hope in Christ.

May the glorious message of peace and love fill you with joy during this wonderful season and throughout the New Year.

PERM (RUSSIA) - We live in a multi-national and multi-denominational country and understand that it is important to treat various ethnic and religious groups of our nation with respect.
