We are a community that is committed to being:
Thoughtful about our India experiences
Welcoming, as we have come from all over the world
Responsive, as we all have needs of one sort or another
Relational, as we are far from our homes, families, and friends
Spiritual, as we process what it means to be a Christian in a foreign land.
We believe that with community help we can thrive and grow with all the challenges of living here in New Delhi.
I invite you to join us as we share this part of our lives together.

At DICF, we celebrate our diversity.
Delhi International Christian Fellowship is an inter-denominational church committed to providing a spiritual and relational home for the international English-speaking community in New Delhi, India. With a congregation of people from all over the world, we recognize the diverse needs of our international community, and celebrate the diversity that makes us a fascinating and relationally supportive church family. Our singles group has friends from China, Congo, Ivory Coast, Spain, Nigeria, Namibia, India, and the United States.
The common threads that weave us together are our faith in Jesus Christ, our common English language, and the help we give each other as expatriates here in India.
No matter what your situation in New Delhi, we are here to help you find:
- greater peace in the struggles of international living,
- closer relationship in the distance from your home countries and families,
- and a growing relationship with God our heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.
Help is available. One of our oft repeated phrases is: ”Better friends are found quicker in our international church.”
DICF is an independent Christian community that is not supported by any church, organization, or mission. Our church life and ministries are funded by the gracious voluntary giving of our members, friends, and attenders. We invite you to share the support of this vital ministry to our international parish of New Delhi.
Our pastor is Karl Smith. He is back for a second time as our pastor. He retired with his very ill wife in 2012. After our last pastor left in April of 2016 because of a visa issue, we have called him back. Karl is in his 10th year in the Indian sub-continent. He has pastored other international churches in Central Africa, and Central America.
Our Church Leadership board is constantly in flux with members coming and going on a regular basis. This past year our board has again reflected our wonderful diversity with members from Australia, Canada, DR Congo, Germany, Great Britain, Japan, Netherlands, Nigeria, South Africa, and the United States.
