The Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA) is a movement of nearly 1,500 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. The growing ministry of the EFCA currently extends to some 80 nations of the world.
The term Evangelical refers to our commitment to the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ and to the Scriptures as being inerrant in the original writings, the complete and sufficient revelation of God's will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. For us, this means the Bible can be trusted in all it teaches in any subject it addresses.
The term Free refers to our form of church government which assures that our local churches are free from a central controlling body. EFCA churches depend upon the active participation of pastors and lay people in the decisions and direction of the local church
