"I just looked up the Evangelical Free Church on Wikipedia. It resulted from a pan-Scandinavian surge of ecumenicalism, and was not all Swedish in origin.
But, now get this!! From Wikipedia:
The EFCA has experienced tremendous…"
"After I wrote my first reaction to Doug's Bennett's piece on having an Evangelical Free Church leader speak on church planting, I wondered: 1.if Bruce Redmond is a Swede; 2.what did he actually talk about; and 3.did he say that he endorsed…"
"I don't find anything very remarkable about this statement of faith in the Bible. If I were preparing a statement, I wouldn't express myself the same way, but this confession of faith is probably less shocking to me than some of…"

Hello William! I just can't thank you enough for your recommendation!! I'm so excited! I have not had a place of worship for years. It has left me lonely.

Blessings and peace, Tina
