The vision at Fort Langley Evangelical Free Church is "Following Jesus Christ together." We do that by being:
a) A Christian witness to our community
b) A family of believers that worships God and lovingly cares for one another
c) A church that equips people for ministry.
Our Calling: In Essentials Unity; In Non-Essentials Charity; In All Things Jesus Christ
This motto, made famous by Rupertus Meldenius, defines our call and expresses our aspirations for how we live as a church family.
In Essentials Unity
Essential Truths: We are called to embody and proclaim the essential truths of Christianity as articulated in the Word of God, expressed through the centuries in the great creeds of the church and defined for us in our Statement of Faith. We continue in the tradition of our Evangelical Free Church of Canada forefathers who emphasized living a life based on the truths of Scripture. These truths have led us to Jesus Christ who said he is truth and that the "truth would set us free."
This calling is expressed through a spirit of unity in Jesus Christ and evidenced by an affirmation of the priesthood and ministry of all believers, congregational government in the local church, meaningful involvement within our regional and national fellowship of churches, and cooperation with all who share our call to these essential truths.
In Non-Essentials Charity
We are called to a generosity of spirit that frees us to embrace a wide variety of Christian brothers and sisters, with some of whom we will not agree in matters outside our Statement of Faith. We warmly welcome all believers who share our commitment to our Statement of Faith and who seek to follow Jesus' command to love God and love our neighbour as ourselves.
We therefore strive to joyfully work with believers outside our own denomination to expand the kingdom of heaven.
In All Things Jesus Christ
We are called to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, who is the Lord God. Through His grace and through His Spirit we seek to fulfill His command to love our neighbour by loving each and every person, especially the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed. We seek to fulfill His great commission by making followers of Him from all people groups. Above all else, we seek to be individuals and a community marked by the presence of Jesus and continually transformed into His image.
