What Is the EA?
- Deepen and expand the fellowship of our clergy and churches.
- Help ministers and congregations discover new and creative ways to work together in partnership to advance the work of the Kingdom.
- Assist churches coming out of denominational structures as they seek to function as independent, autonomous congregations.
- Encourage our churches, clergy, and laity to maintain a steadfast biblical witness, affirming Jesus as Lord in an era when many are pressuring Christians to compromise the truth.
- To support and promote the Scriptural principles of the autonomy of the local church and encourage a steadfast biblical witness by our churches, our clergy, and laity to our Lord, Jesus Christ.
- To assist churches in finding pastors.
- Jesus Christ is the head of His body, the Church, and each local church.
- Christ exercises His authority in each local church by the Holy Spirit and through the Holy Scriptures.
- Each local church is in itself a complete church and is therefore autonomous and possesses all the rights and responsibilities of the church as bestowed upon it by the Holy Spirit and set forth in God's Word.
The EA Logo: What It Represents
The Cross in the center of the logo is a variant of ancient renditions of the Cross, reminding us that our faith represents the ancient, historic, orthodox faith of the Church passed down from the Early Church, through the Reformation, to us today.
