Evangelical Free Church of Canada
The Evangelical Free Church of Canada (EFCC) is an association of over 160 churches joined together by common purposes, principles and practices. It is a partner with more than 1400 Evangelical Free Churches in the United States. The Evangelical Free Church of Canada is also an active participant among over 30 members of the International Federation of Free Evangelical Churches (IFFEC) worldwide.
“Evangelical”refers to our commitment to the authority of
Scripture as being inerrant in the original autographs and the only safe and sufficient guide to faith and practice. It also speaks to our belief that the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ form the only basis upon which, by God’s grace, we can be reconciled to our Heavenly Father.
“Free”is a term that historically has designated a church as
being one that was not a state-controlled church. Today, since no church in North America is state-sanctioned or controlled, it has come to signify our form of church government as being congregational and the fact that Evangelical Free Churches maintain their autonomy with regard to the purchase of property, calling of pastors, setting budgets, and so forth. Yet they voluntarily band together interdependently and freely in missions, church planting, education, camping, publications, and other ministries.
