The term “Evangelical” refers to our theology (what we believe). We are committed to the proclamation of the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, and to the Scriptures as being the inspired, inerrant, authoritative and sufficient Word of God.
The term “Free” refers to our polity (how we operate). The term “Free” has two meanings for us. First, in reference to history, it refers to the fact that in Europe, the Free Church was free from the state church control. Second, in reference to theology, it refers to our local church polity in that each local church is autonomous, i.e. free from ecclesiastical and hierarchical control. We are committed to a congregational form of church governance.
