Evangelical Free

What does it mean to be Evangelical Free?

Our congregation is one of about 1,490 churches affiliated as part of the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA).  For short, our denomination is often known as "The Free Church."

Evangelical refers to our desire to evangelize or get out the word about Jesus Christ and what a difference He's made in our lives and can make in the lives of others and that the Scriptures are the inspired, inerrant, authoritative and sufficient Word of God.

Free refers to the fact that all churches in the EFCA are free to govern themselves as they see fit.  There are certain beliefs we all hold in common, and those are important to us.  But the way individual churches function is up to each church.
