After unveiling the first version of the new EFCA vision statement during last year's national summit, the national leadership held scores of conversations with denominational leaders around the nation and world and today unveiled our updated version.
VERSION 1: From last year's summit.
We are praying that God would grant us one million disciplemakers impacting one hundred million people with the gospel along with one hundred million people with the gospel along with one hundred Acts 19 locations globally where the gospel is transforming whole cities and regions rather than simply a neighborhood.
VERSION 2: From this year's summit.
We are praying that God will raise up one million disciplemakers impacting millions with the gospel and transforming entire cities and regions globally.
Though I think the statement is missing the communal implication of the Gospel in forming churches, I do think the updated vision is much clearer, easier to understand, and motivating. Though the forming of churches is not in the vision statement, it does continue to be a vital element in our mission statement, which guides our overall direction as a movement.
The EFCA exists to glorify God by multiplying transformational churches among all people.
