Our Denomination

"Evangelical Free"

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.
