A young man Sukrit from India and young lady Sang Yee from Korea, united as wife and husband to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the unreached people in Kolkata, West Bengal, India in the year 1986. After completion of Sukrit and Sang Yee’s studies in South Korea they arrived in India on February 25th and the Kolkata Love Presbyterian Church was established on 1st March 1987 with seven founding members (Sukrit , Sang Yee, Supriyo, Chung Dong Hak, Yoon Gum Soo, Wonson,Yaeson) and Christ Mission Ashram was officially started and applied for registration on 2nd March 1987.

Since then the mission has grown into a big tree from a small mustard seed. God has helped us to plant more than 130 churches in West Bengal, Orissa, Jharkhand, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura and Nepal. We are thankful to Him for loving us and choosing us. He called us tomake us righteous through the redemptive work of God by believing in Him, trained us, appointed us to serve in His vineyard. We are thankful to our parents who gave us birth and taught us how to love the Lord and serve the Lord. Thankful to all our pastors, teachers,friends, sponsors, board members, advisors and mentors who contributed in our life & Mission. We have felt the presence and hand of the Lord throughout these last 25 years. When we first started three different pastors in three different locations shared from the sametext Job 8:7 “Although the beginning is small but the later end will be blessed abundantly”. Also on this silver Jubilee occasion four different speakers preached from the same passage of the Mustard Seed.

This last Christmas 12 brothers and sisters were baptized in our Kolkata Love Church. This coming Easter five more believers are preparing to be baptized.
