The first attempt at implanting an Arab church in Brazil was made in 1920 by a Lebanese immigrant pastor, The Rev. Khalil Sim?o Ragi. He organized the Syrian Evangelical Church of S?o Paulo. Though it experienced progress and numerical growth, this church was dissolved in 1935. Evangelistic work in Arabic was resumed in 1954 by another Lebanese immigrant, Rev. Ragi Azar Khouri. He opened the doors of his own house in Campinas, S?o Paulo state, for a small community to gather. He set up preaching points in the states of S?o Paulo and Goiás. Until the dedication of its own church building in S?o Paulo in 1979, the community met on the premises of various Evangelical denominations. The church maintains a library, the Sal?o Internacional de Leitura e Orientaç?o (International Reading and Counselling Room) in the city of Campinas, S?o Paulo state.
