The Mar Thoma Church of New Jersey is part of the Malankara Mar Thoma Church which traces its origins to the apostolic work of St. Thomas, one of the disciples of Jesus Christ who spread the Good News in India around AD 52.
The mission of the Mar Thoma church is to spread the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jesus said “You are the Light of the World”. Every believer and member of the Mar Thoma Church should take up the responsibility to lighten others and hence our motto – Lighted to Lighten.
The Malankara Mar Thoma Church is led by our Valiya Metrapolitan, His Grace the Most Rev Dr Philipose Mar Chrysostom, and our current Metropolitan, His Grace the Most Rev Dr Joseph Mar Thoma. Our parish is also part of the Mar Thoma Diocese of North America and Europe, headquartered in Merrick, NY. Rt. Rev. Dr. Geevarghese Mar Theodosius is the current Diocesan Bishop.
