The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) embraces member-bodies whose identity and vocation are rooted in historic biblical Christianity. The WEA affirms and seeks the biblical unity of Christ’s body, the Church, celebrating the diversity of practices and theological emphases consistent with the WEA Statement of Faith, recognizing the existing dynamic tension between undeniable unity and marvelous diversity.
Its members join in common concern to live and proclaim the Good News of Jesus amongst all nations and peoples, seeking holiness, justice, and transformation at every level: individual, family, community, and culture. In this way the Father is honoured, the kingdom of his Son is extended, and the Holy Spirit’s empowering presence moves freely in gifting, community renewal, and ministries.
There are three types of membership with the WEA:
- Regional & National Alliances are regional evangelical fellowships and their national fellowships/alliances.
- Affiliate Members are independently incorporated organizations with their own specific ministries and accountability, an international scope of ministry across at least two regions, and the capacity and authority to serve in and beyond the WEA community.
- Church Networks & Denominations are located in a number of countries in at least two regions and which are organized with a written constitution.
