Good Shepherd Foundations

The foundations of our church movement have their roots in the principles and behavior of the early church ‘the church of the apostles’ documented in the book of Acts in the Bible. We remain steadfast to the tenants as voted on in the councils by our church fathers.

Founding icons of the faith

The cross of Saint Thomas and the Good Shepherd emblem were common in the early Church over 2000 years ago and remain foundational reminders for Good Shepherd Church of India in unity and purpose.
