In Bangladesh, if someone becomes keenly desirous to follow the command of Jesus as mentioned in Matthew 28:19–20, “you, therefore, must go out, making disciples of all nations, and baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all the commandments which I have given you”, he/she must emphasis on the culture of the majority people group. In around 1600 century, Gospel was first preached in this region, and since then, both of Catholics and Protestants are practicing the religious devotion either according to the Western culture or Hindu culture or according to a mixed culture of those two. Till today, none of those churches are practicing the religious devotion according to the majority people group’s culture or tradition. As a result, from the very beginning, Christianity was established in this region. The majority people convert faced a disagreeable cultural problem and we think this was a major barricade behind accepting Jesus for majority of people into Christianity. So, on 2nd September 1999, we who are converts from majority people background established Isa-e Church. We kept this reality in our mind to make a platform where the new believers can stand firmly. Therefore, Isa-e Church can be regarded as the Church in this region which is more or less based on the culture of the majority people group and was established directly by the majority people background believers. Isa-e Jamat Bangladesh (IJB) started as a platform of majority people background believers. Many scattered believers from all over the country were not organized in a congregation. So IJB started Church planting work among the majority community in a contextualized Bengali majority way. We used the word “Jamat” to mean the local congregation. But this name is mostly used by majority groups, so to avoid the confusion we changed the congregational name in Isa-e Church Bangladesh. (ICB). So, as member of the universal Church, we are Isa-e Church Bangladesh (ICB). It is a continuing Church denomination of the platform of Isa-e Jamat Bangladesh (IJB).
