About us

Union of Oromo Evangelical Churches in Europe (UOECE) is a not- for- profit continental umbrella organization established in May 2010 comprising Oromo Evangelical Churches, Fellowships and Congregations scattered in Europe.

The main objective of the Union is to foster unity among Oromo Evangelical Churches, Fellowships and Congregations, and to bring together the scattered Christians and nurturing them in their beliefs. It maintains contact among prayer groups and individual Christians in Europe and Africa and encourages the establishment of fellowships and churches. Based on the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ UOECE stands with the poor and powerless, advocate for peace and justice.

UOECE accepts the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as divinely inspired Word of God and submits to these as the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and life. The union also recognizes the three major Creeds of the early church (the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed) as based on the Holy Scripture.

The board of directors comprising 5 members elected by the council which constitute authorized delegates from Member Churches, Fellowships and Congregations, governs UOECE.

UOECE works with the United Oromo Evangelical Churches (UOEC), other Churches and Church affiliated and humanitarian Organisations.
