Evangelical issues

We are very aware that FIEC is not the only group of evangelical churches in the UK, and that our nation will not be reached for Christ by any single family of churches alone. We highly value good working relationships with other evangelicals who share our gospel convictions.

Wherever possible we seek to support gospel initiatives organised by those who would happily affirm our Doctrinal Basis, whether at a local or national level. FIEC is one of the largest constituent members of Affinity, which exists to express the unity of Independent churches and evangelical denominations in the United Kingdom. Our National Director is a member of the Affinity Leadership Group.

We have strong relationships with conservative evangelical Anglicans and the regional Gospel Partnerships, and we work in partnership with many evangelical para-church organisations. Our National Director is part of the steering group for Word Alive. We are also fostering closer friendship and mutual understanding with other church groupings.

We see it as one of FIEC’s responsibilities to provide theological leadership to Independent churches by promoting and publishing high quality research and teaching on biblical ecclesiology, current areas of theological controversy affecting evangelicalism, and practical help on pastoral issues. This work is undertaken by the FIEC Theological Team and through the teaching and writing ministry of our National Director. Please do contact the National Director if there are any specific theological or pastoral issues that you feel that FIEC should be addressing.

    Regional identity

    Each part of Great Britain has its own culture with particular challenges and blessings. That’s why we encourage FIEC churches to partner together on gospel initiatives in their region – it helps them to reflect the specific needs of their location.

  • Scotland

    We recognise that the challenges of ministering the gospel are different in different parts of Great Britain. It’s for that reason that we appointed FIEC Scotland Director Andy Hunter.

  • Wales

    In 2015 we gathered together pastors from our churches across Wales to discuss how FIEC can best serve the gospel across the principality.
