The Assyrian Church of the East is known by historians and scholars and also proclaimed by the Pope John Paul II as “The martyrs’ church”, because no church has suffered as much martyrdom for Christianity as the Assyrian Church of the East has.
Bishops from the Church of the East were sent from Mesopotamia to India until the Sixteenth Century, but ecclesio-political considerations related to Portuguese missions meant that for the next few centuries bishops for India were ordained only with authorization from Rome, or from the Chaldean Catholic Church (a particular church in communion with Rome).

As the Church is willing to help people achieving their perfect progress, manifesting public interest to be more humane, the Church has more responsibility to promote justice, peace, love and freedom through its teaching authority in the form of cooperation with all people with good intentions obeying the Teacher's instructions to teach all nations.
Therefore the Church has the noble task to disseminate its doctrine on the community and also submitting moral assessment such as political structure whenever the rights of the people or the salvation are required and based on public interest in line with the evolution of time and situation.
The Church takes this position encouraged by the awareness and loyalty for this mission, for the community, for whom the Church was assigned to inform the Truth, Freedom, Peace, respect for human being in the Spirit of the Bible and the Church's Social Doctrine.
