The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches exists to encourage & equip our family of independent churches to thrive, impacting our nation with the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The FIEC exists for no other reason than to see the whole of our nation – every citizen and every community – reached and transformed by the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that this task can only be accomplished by thriving local churches which are biblical and missional.

We know that we cannot accomplish this task alone, and we want to work with all others who share our passion for the gospel. However, we are convinced that healthy biblical independence is vital for the cause of the gospel in our nation. Independent churches have great freedom to stand firm for biblical truth, and great flexibility to minister creatively without the institutional drag of denominational politics.

We seek to contribute to the cause of the gospel in our specific mission field, which is the UK, by nurturing and establishing faithful gospel churches in every community that will hold out the word of life to the lost.

We stand in a long historic tradition. Independent non-conformity has made a massive contribution to the evangelisation of our nation in past centuries, and we urgently need revived independent churches to do the same in our generation.
