DANIEL MOR TIMOTHEOS EPISCOPA
Bishop Daniel Mor Timotheos was consecrated as an Episcopa (bishop) of Believers Eastern Church on March 2nd, 2017. Bishop Daniel (also known as Bishop Daniel Punnose) received a Bachelor of Theology degree from Believers Eastern Church Theological Seminary.
Along with his responsibilities as Diocesan Bishop of the Canadaian Diocese, Bishop Daniel serves as the vice-president of GFA World USA.
Believers Eastern Church adheres to the episcopal governance and structure embodied in Scripture and followed by the Church Fathers. We believe in the universal priesthood of all believers, yet we also believe that God is a God of order who establishes lines of authority to strengthen the church in serving Him and humanity.
We believe that each part of God’s Church should be autonomous, that is: self-governing, self-supporting and self-propagating. Believers Eastern Church is led by its own Metropolitan, The Synod, Conference of Bishops and General Assembly. We function according to a well-defined constitution and have a democratic pattern of administration.
The spiritual oversight, administration and ministries of the church are organized by dioceses, which consist of multiple parishes in a specific geographic location. Daniel Mor Timotheos Episcopa gives spiritual and temporal oversight to our diocese. The Diocesan Executive Council and Diocesan Council serve, assisting the bishop, for the administration and functions of a diocese.
Local congregations within the diocese are referred to as parishes. Each local parish of Believers Eastern Church is led by a member of the clergy and assisted by the Parish Council.

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. St. Matthew 5:14-16
Christ always served those with the greatest need regardless of what others thought of Him or them. As His followers, we are compelled to do the same, bringing Christ's love to all people in both word and deed, regardless of their caste, creed or religion. Jesus told us that people will know we are His disciples by our love for one another.
