Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The American Evangelical Christian Churches is an organization which seeks to enable orthodox evangelical ministers the opportunity to preach without having to adhere to what it perceives as being man-made doctrines of many churches.

It was founded in Chicago in 1944. Any member of the church is required to accept the following seven articles of faith[1]:

All other beliefs are optional. This specifically includes the dispute regarding free will and predestination.

The organization has had its headquarters in Pineland, Florida since the 1970s. The same city is the site of the group's retreat center and the American Bible College, an associated institution which offers distance education courses. In 2006, there were 17,400 members in 192 congregations.[2]
