EVANGELICAL FREE CHURCH
WHO WE ARE
We're just some of the followers of Jesus Christ that you'll meet in Geneva, NE.
While we all call Nebraska home, we have a diversity of backgrounds.
We gather every week for Bible study, worship, mutual encouragement, and service in the name of, and for the glory of, the Kingdom of God.
We believe that the Bible is our ultimate guide for life, providing trustworthy and relevant instructions for how we should live today, based on eternal truths.
As an Evangelical Free Church, we have core values and beliefs that we share with many other Bible believing Christians.
Through our worship services, small groups, men’s and women’s Bible studies, youth and children’s programs, mission trips and fellowship events, we are growing into a community of people who believe that...
“Jesus Christ Lives In Us and Through Us to Reach the World Around Us.”
We offer opportunities to grow and enjoy life together among all age groups. Stop in on your journey. There’s a place for you here...
Evangelical Free Church-Geneva, NE is a congregationally governed body. This means that the ultimate human authority within our fellowship rests within the MEMBERSHIP of the congregation.
The local church membership votes to hire pastors, and elects leaders, as outlined in our constitution, to carry out and oversee the ongoing ministry events and tasks of our local ministry.
