Our name – Evangelical Formosan Church – captures both our vision and our heritage

As an evangelical denomination, we place a strong emphasis on the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally, and today, by the grace of God, EFC congregations exist in many cities around the United States and Canada, as well as in Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, and Costa Rica, all seeking to share the love of God with their communities.

The name Formosan acknowledges our heritage as a denomination that began initially with a vision to reach the Taiwanese-speaking immigrant community in the United States with the gospel, as Formosa is one of the traditional English names for Taiwan. 

Finally, as a church, we treasure our place within the wider Body of Christ as we work together with brothers and sisters throughout the world to fulfill both the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:35-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20).
