Mission of DeForest Evangelical Free Church


"To know Christ and to make Him known"

In order to reach this goal, we teach everyone that there is no other name given by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12) and encourage everyone to place faith in Him and to share His message with everyone we can.

To Know Christ

We seek a maturing personal relationship with Christ as our Creator, Lord, and Savior: Ephesians 1:17-18

We fellowship daily with Him in prayer and in reading, studying, and applying the Scriptures: Acts 2:42-44

We gratefully express our faith in Him through sincere worship, willing obedience, and loving submission: Ephesians 5:1-2, Ephesians 5:19-21

To Make Christ Known

We serve only through the power of the Holy Spirit, not our own: John 14: 16-17

We make every effort to introduce as many people as possible to Christ through public proclamation and personal testimony: 2 Corinthians 5:20, 2 Timothy 4:2, 1 Peter 3:25

We encourage each new Christian to develop a growing personal relationship of faith with Christ through prayer, daily Bible study, and obedience: Hebrews 10:24-25, James 1:19-22, 2 Timothy 2:15

We support each new Christian and each other with Godly living, Biblical teaching, consistent fellowship, and training: Colossians 3:12-17
