Who we are


o FCR International is a non-profit Christian organization focused on serving refugees and others living in the refugee communities. As we love and            serve God and people, we make disciples of all nations.


o FCR Communities, groups of devoted Christians through whom FCR International operates, are located throughout all nine provinces of Austria and        have also spread beyond the borders of Austria into Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and Kosovo as well as Nicosia, Cyprus.


o FCR International works in partnership with churches, Christian organizations, charitable and philanthropic organizations, refugee service providers,        and other local and international agencies. There are also FCR International Representatives in countries outside Austria. 


Our beliefs


o the Holy Scriptures are the divinely inspired Word of God and are authoritative in all matters of Christian faith and practice.


o there is one God - eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit - who is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. 


o in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, and His ascension to the          right hand of the Father. 


o men are reborn as children of God through genuine repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ, the only Savior of men.


o in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict, teach, guide, and enable Christians to live a godly life.


o the church, composed of believers in Jesus Christ, exists to bring glory to Jesus Christ, our Head and source of life, and accomplish His purpose.


o Jesus Christ will personally return to claim His Church - our hope and encouragement for ministry.


o after death believers will be bodily resurrected to enjoy everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, but unbelievers will encounter judgment and          everlasting conscious punishment.


Our philosophy


Our ministry is built on a foundation of no discrimination, no favoritism, and no distinction.
"You are all sons of God through faith in Jesus Christ, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" (Galatians 3:26-28)


Our history


The Fellowship of Christian Refugees (FCR) began in July 2003 in Traiskirchen, Austria. The central ministry of FCR started in Guntramsdorf, Lower Austria but has moved to Upper Austria as of July 4, 2013. FCR is linked with FCR Communities (groups of refugee Christians) throughout all nine provinces of Austria and is spreading to other parts of Europe as well as impacting other countries around the world.
