The History of DICF
Delhi International Christian Fellowship (DICF) started in 1992 as a home-fellowship group led by David Hudson. As we grew larger our gatherings took us to the Hyatt Hotel on Sunday mornings. For several years, guest speakers were invited to lead the small weekly worship meetings. Rich Tevis began serving as pastor part-time from 2002 to 2004. In 2003 DICF received proper legal status and the church moved to the British School auditorium. In 2005 Karl Smith was called to be our first full-time pastor. He served until his retirement in 2012. Phil Oswald accepted the call to pastor full-time until 2016 when Karl Smith returned for another 4 years. Our new pastor, Mike Crichton, is currently preaching via our weekly online sermon. He and his wife are waiting for borders to open before they can move to New Delhi.
Key DICF beliefs:
1. We are God-centered
DICF exists for God. In every person and program, God comes first.
2. We are Bible-based
DICF lives by the Bible. Bible teaching permeates every program because we want to know, understand and live God’s Word.
3. We are Outward-oriented
DICF serves the broader expatriate community in order to offer them a place in the church and show them the love of Christ.
4. We are Disciples
Disciple-making is happening when DICF members live as authentic Christians – especially under stress, and especially in demonstrating Christian love in relationships with others.
5. We are Kingdom-builders
The kingdom of Jesus Christ is far greater than any or denomination and includes loyal followers of Jesus all over the world. We are serious about growing His Kingdom.
