WEA HELPS WRITE HISTORIC DOCUMENT ON MISSION ETHICS
The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA), of which the EFC is a member, has launched a historic document on the ethics of Christian mission. This historic document is the result of a five-year collaboration of the WEA with the World Council of Churches and the Vatican, who together represent over 90 per cent of the world’s Christian population. This is the first document of its kind in the history of the Church. The report is, in part, a response to criticisms levelled at Christians by some religious communities. The document identifies the biblical call to evangelism and outlines the ethical mandates related to the gospel.

WHY DO WE SEND KIDS TO CAMP?
Let's be honest. Your reasons for sending your kids to summer camp are probably the same as this author's. Read this delightful article by Phil Callaway from the EFC’s Christianity.ca library.
