The Christian Federation of Malaysia (CFM) was formed with the objective to bring together all Christians who accept the authority of the Holy Bible and who subscribe to the cardinal doctrines of Christianity as set forth in the Apostles’ Creed. In doing so, the CFM hopes to reinforce and extend, wherever possible, through dialogue and consultation, the areas of common agreement among the various Christian groups in Malaysia. As a national organisation, we hope to represent the Christian community in Malaysia on all matters that affect or are of interest to it. CFM also seeks to consult and work with the Government and non-governmental (religious and secular) bodies at all administrative levels, on all matters of common interest and concern.
One of CFM’s core objective is to promote fellowship among church leaders and communities throughout Malaysia. We do this by organising the National Christian Conference (NCC) once every four years. This is an opportunity for Church leaders and communities to come together to discuss, engage, and fellowship with each other by exchanging views on current issues within and without the Church.
Since its formation, CFM has been playing an active role in the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism, in which we represent the Christian community in this interreligious organisation. At official meetings at the federal, state and local government officials, the CFM seeks to represent the Christian interest at all levels.
An integral aspect of this organisation is also to work with civil organisations in order to protect civil liberties in Malaysia. When deemed necessary, CFM issues statements on significant current issues arising from national and state policies (see our Resource page for past statements).
