NEFC as a Denomination
Even though NEFC is a Fellowship of Indian churches, in the eyes of the Government it is a religious denomination because of
NEFC does not emphasize its identity as a church denomination but would rather be looked on as a Fellowship.
There is no religious hierarchy in NEFC because NEFC believes in the full autonomy of its membership churches. The NEFC
administration can approach a member church only when there is a doctrinal difference or a violation of a by-law which each member church
has agreed to follow.
