Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28)


Saint Thomas Christians believe that Thomas the Apostle arrived in Kerala around AD 52. He landed at Muziris (near Cochin on the Malabar Coast). The Jews and a few of the Wise Men, who had been to Bethlehem to worship Jesus listened to his preaching and became followers of Jesus of Nazareth.It is believed that he organized 7 Christian communities for the use of these Christians, and ordained presbyters from four leading families.


In this distant land, my soul shall thirst and my tongue shall praise, Jesus, my Lord and Savior King, who from the dead was raised! And we His chosen people shall sing, with songs that never cease, And tell, of His unending love, His comfort, and His gift of peace! Looking back, we’ve come a long way. A long way from our homes in the tropical south of India; and a long way, when considering our journey as a church in the State of Kuwait.

St Thomas Mar Thoma Church

The history of this ancient Church during 4th to 15th centuries reveals the fact that it was in friendly relations with the Church in Persia. There is a tradition that a group of 400 immigrants from Persia arrived in Malabar in AD 345 under the leadership of a merchant named Thomas of Cana, known as Knaye Thommen. Mention is made also of another immigration from Persia in the year AD 825 under the leadership of a Persian merchant named Marwan Sabriso with two Bishops named Mar Sapro and Mar Prodh. They landed in Quilon. King Cheraman Perumal gave them land and extended to them special privileges, inscribed on two sets of Copper Plates (in Malayalam “Chepped”). Three of these are still in the Old Seminary in Kottayam and two are at the Mar Thoma Church Head Quarters, Tiruvalla. The Portuguese started settling in India with the coming of Vasco De Gama in AD 1498.
