On January 12, 1996, the Church of Jesus Christ in Cracow was registered by the Religious Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration in the Register of Churches and Religious Unions in section A under item 105.
This date is very important because it symbolically ended the transformation from a youth group, consisting mostly of students from Kraków’s universities, into a church with a legal personality.
The history of our church dates back to the mid-1980s, when the “Miriam” community was active in Krakow, being a part of the Catholic Renewal in Holy Spirit (popularly known as the charismatic movement; Catholic Charismatic Movement). In this community, a group of students was formed, which, through cooperation with the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (Christian Academic Association), grew rapidly. It is from this group that our church originates.
In 2000, as a result of transformations, our community became a federation of autonomous churches, which later became known in 2009 as the “Church of God in Poland”, and the Church of Jesus Christ in Cracow became its local church.
The Church of God in Poland decided to join the International Church of God (with its headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee). As a result, we have become a part of more than seven million church families, present in more than 170 countries around the world
