Eleos Christian Church was established in 1994 by missionary couple Kurt & Asha Erickson. Through their work among the poor in one of London's neediest boroughs, especially among the children they encountered roaming the streets, they saw many of the lives of these children and their parents transformed by the gospel of Jesus.
In 1996, the foundation of Eleos Christian Church was firmly established with outreaches in London's West End meeting the needs of the growing homeless population and actively involved in overseas missionary work in Eastern Europe, especially war-torn Bosnia and Croatia.
Presently, Eleos Christian Church is a dynamic community of believers, whose aim is to make the gospel of Jesus Christ known to everyone from across the street to across the seas. We believe it is crucial that everyone come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. And that all who believe continue to grow in their love for Him and for others within the church and contagiously show His love and mercy to those who still do not know Jesus. The church places great emphasis on the outpouring of one's faith through a balanced theology of working out one's faith through the love of God and the power of His Spirit.
Being strategically located in the heart of London, Eleos Christian Church still serves as a training base for missionaries from all over the globe. It trains missionaries from every continent and has sister congregations throughout the world.
