WHAT IS THE EFCA?
WHAT DOES "EVANGELICAL" MEAN?

The term “Evangelical” refers to our theology. Specifically, our commitment to the proclamation of the good news in the Gospels, and to the authority of the 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” has two meanings. First, in reference to history, it refers to the fact that in Europe, the Free Church was free from the state church control. Second, it refers to our form of congregational church polity in that each local church is autonomous and self-governing, i.e. free from ecclesiastical and hierarchical control.
