- Evangelism and church planting
The doors open at the historic National Evangelical Church of Bahrain, and the diversity of God’s global church is quickly visible—the English Language Congregation (ELC) is a depiction of the Acts 2 church in action. With roughly 1,000 believers from over 50 countries, the ELC worship community values both the study of God’s Word and service to other people. They have the unique opportunity to be the very presence of Christ in a part of the world where Christianity is often misunderstood.
Blaine Newhouse serves as the senior pastor of the ELC of the National Evangelical Church of the Kingdom of Bahrain, a church planted by the RCA in 1893. His wife Kathleen teaches at Al Raja School.
