What is the difference between the Evangelical Free Church of America and the Evangelical Covenant Church?

Question by Andrew R: What is the difference between the Evangelical Free Church of America and the Evangelical Covenant Church?
I have attended a church in the denomination of the Evangelical Free Church of America. I have been going since I was really young and I have found that I don’t like the head pastor. There is a church that a few of the congregation have gone to when leaving the church for one reason or another and it is in the Evangelical Covenant Church denomination. What are the differences between these churches? Does anyone have any different denominations that are similar, but different from EFCA?

The following link gives good details on the ECC –

The EFCA has a good website as well –

Both have the same beginnings, 1885 or so. Both are fairly loose in their oversight of individual churches.

Doctronally, you may find it easiest to ask the church you attend, and the ECC you mentioned. Have you talked to the pastoral staff about your concerns?

God bless.
