We provide guidance concerning the articles of faith and seek to advance the spiritual growth and enlightenment of our members and community. In addition, ECFM goals include: to promote home and for-eign missions; aid in the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to educate, prepare, train and ordain Christian men and women for the ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
