A small congregation of believers originally began meeting together to worship in 1973, at St. Luke’s Methodist Church, Dallas. After a few years, the congregation moved their worship services to Cochran Methodist Church, Dallas. Our humble beginnings as a group of believers were eventually recognized as an official Mar Thoma congregation by the Episcopal Synod of the Mar Thoma Church in 1976.
