"You are my friends if you do what I command"
All Evangelical Friends Churches and Yearly Meetings worldwide exist under a unified Constitution and Statement of Faith. We share a mutual concern to participate fully as biblically-based, evangelically-minded Friends in seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, individually and collectively. We value unity, stand together in spiritual warfare, and strategize organizationally to advance the mission and vision of EFCI by honoring the Great Commission and Great Commandment of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
EFCI is governed by an international council comprising our director, Dr. Adrian Halverstadt and the Regional directors from Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and North America, along with a member representative from each Region. We work together under the policies and arrangements outlined in the Constitution to offer the world Christian ministries based on Biblical principles and precepts. Globally, Evangelical Friends invest personal and material resources to facilitate the call of God and address humanity’s needs as expressed in diverse cultures. Our core values include spiritual renewal, evangelism and discipleship, church multiplication, fellowship, and leadership development.
There has been no better time in history to be a part of what God is doing in and through EFCI! Our ministry and influence continue to expand exponentially. Together we have the joyful experience of seeing individuals transformed into the image of Jesus Christ, Biblical values embraced in families and local communities, and participating firsthand in the move of the Holy Spirit sweeping the globe through our international association of Evangelical Friends. The best days for EFCI are still to come. Welcome to the team!
