Our Story

How it all started...

As early as 1879 there were Norwegian-language services being held in the Concord, Massachusetts area to minister to the growing Scandinavian community of believers. In the summer of 1919, an evangelist from the Eastern Free Church Association, the Rev. E.M. Anderson, held a series of fruitful tent meetings. The many new believers in Christ desiring to stay in Concord formed the Norwegian Zion Evangelical Free Church, affiliated with the Norwegian-Danish Evangelical Free Church Association. A new building was dedicated in November 1920, on Lang Street in Concord. In the late 1920s the preaching services changed to English as the church reached into the community with the Gospel and the church became known as the Evangelical Free Church of Concord. In 1950 the Norwegian-Danish Evangelical Free Church Association and the Swedish Evangelical Free Church were merged into the Evangelical Free Church of America.

Expanding the vision...

The present property in Acton, MA was purchased in 1971. Three years later the church began holding services at Conant School in Acton, and established the name Faith Evangelical Chapel. Construction on the present building began in December 1975 and it was dedicated in October 1976. We adopted our present name of Faith Evangelical Free Church in 1993 to make evident our affiliation with the Evangelical Free Church of America.

Where we are headed...

We are a church committed to glorifying God and expanding His kingdom, as together - we love God, serve others, and make disciples.  Our mission is to "Present Everyone Mature in Christ."

Would you consider joining us in this high calling of glorifying God and reaching the lost for Christ?
