About Us

“Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt. 28:19-20

Our Mission

In our quest to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20), we engage in mission opportunities wherever God presents them, both within and outside our community.


We have partnered with a global response team called ReachGlobal, a mission branch of the EFCA. They have a regional headquarters at our church. Teams from around the country come and provide spiritual and physical help to our community. 

Our church is blessed with ample space to house and feed these teams making our facilities one of the best locations for the ReachGlobal teams.

Our Vision

About

the EFCA

The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of autonomous churches united around these theological convictions. The EFCA Statement of Faith and Distinctives clarify doctrinal positions. 

History of the EFCA

The Evangelical Free Church of America traces its roots to Scandinavia where various Lutheran and other evangelical churches formed the Swedish Evangelical Free Church. In the 1880s, a branch of the denomination took shape in the U.S. and in 1950, a merger between the Swedish Evangelical Free Church and the Norwegian-Dutch Evangelical Free Church came about along with a new name: The Evangelical Free Church of America. Prior to the merger, many EFC churches in America held services in their "mother tongue." After the merger, English became the predominant language in EFCA worship services.

What does Evangelical Free mean?

Evangelical: This term refers to our commitment to proclaim the Gospel (Greek: evangelion, translated, "good news"). Of first importance to evangelicals is sharing the Good News of salvation by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

Free: When the denomination was formed in Scandinavia following a religious revival in northern Europe in the mid-1850s, "Free" referred to freedom from government control. In terms of theology, it refers to the autonomy of each church in governing themselves without state or denominational interference.

Giving

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17

 

"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 2 Cor. 9:7

Giving tithes and offerings to the local church is not just an act of obedience, it is our privilege. We give out of gratitude to God for the blessings He has given us. We give in recognition that He is more important than money or anything else. We give in faith that He will continue to meet our needs. We give to support the ministry of the local church as it fulfills its mission to share the Gospel with people in our community and those around the world.
