The ECA has been serving God’s servants since 1887. Our founders began this work to offer an alternative to the Theological Liberalism that had seeped into the church. The founders wanted to provide credentials to those who would not compromise the Word of God. This new work was not anti-denominational, but was pro-Word of God and committed to high standards of ministry.

ECA Headquarters, Bradley, ILThroughout the years the Evangelical Church Alliance has not wavered and has held fast to the Word of God and high standards. Our goal is to maintain the integrity of the ministry, providing credentials to those of like mind who are called of God and have a proven ministry.
