Evangelical Free Church of America: The Basics
The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of nearly 1,400 autonomous churches united by a mutual commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God. We are committed to cooperate with one another in ministry and fellowship as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission which Christ has entrusted to His Church. The growing ministry of the EFCA currently extends to some 45 countries of the world.
What Does “Evangelical” Mean?
The term Evangelical refers to our commitment to the proclamation of the Gospel and to the authority of Scriptures as being inerrant in the original writings and the only safe and sufficient guide to faith and practice.
What Does “Free” Mean?
The term Free refers to our form of church government as being congregational. Evangelical Free Churches depend upon the active participation of lay people in their decisions and directions.
A Strategic Outsider’s Reflection of who we are in the EFCA:
WE ARE “CONNECTED NON-CONFORMISTS” connected by…
SPIRIT-DEPENDENCE with a bias for prayer
HUMBLE ORTHODOXY with a prophetic tone
MOVEMENT MINDSET that finds frontiers
RADICAL FLEXIBILITY centered in the gospel
BIBLICAL ANCHORING that releases laymen
ULTIMATE FREEDOM that chooses interdependence
