History

By 1947, the Malayan Christian Council (MCC) was mooted and formed, finding official inauguration on 9th January 1948. The MCC was an unprecedented act of faith of the churches on Malaysian soil to stay and grow together through ecumenical cooperation.

The CCM celebrated fifty years of united witness and service in 1997. It salutes the founding fathers of the ecumenical movement in our country. It is grateful to all the leaders, past and present who have contributed to the well-being of the organisation. It expresses its appreciation to the whole people of God of all the member churches who have sustained and developed the vision of greater unity of the churches in witness and service.
The past few years have been a time of tremendous change in the history of the nation and among the people of Malaysia. Our country joined the international community of independent nations in 1957. It went through periods of difficult social and political strife. More recently, rapid economic development is propelling Malaysia into the future bringing new and unprecedented opportunities but at the same time also challenging the values and traditions of our rich past.
The churches too have undergone profound transformations, from communities depending on foreign missions, they have become autonomous bodies, fully responsible for their life and witness in society. As a minority the churches have learned to hold together faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ and peaceful relations with our Muslim neighbours and fellow Malaysians of other faiths.
During all those years, the Council of Churches of Malaysia has been the focal point of ecumenical cooperation and commitment and the instrument of common witness of its member churches.
