The global family

Every local church needs a global heart. The alternative simply isn't biblical. We want to help churches to be equipped for the global challenge.

The global family primary image

Although predominantly a family of UK-based churches, the FIEC has become the natural home for many independent Bible churches who wish to take their stand upon a gospel confession and wish to reflect their unity with God’s people everywhere. We partner with a number of agencies who both send and receive workers overseas, and liaise with similar bodies internationally. FIEC churches are involved in providing internships for those called and recognised to work in British society.

  • Church planting primary image

    Church planting

    The planting of new churches is one of the best ways of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. Grace-filled church communities have a major impact upon fractured and lonely people.

  • Revitalising churches primary image

    Revitalising churches

    Whilst many gospel churches grow through a wise, faithful and creative missional mindset, the reality is that a number of churches experience numerical decline for a number of varying reasons. The gospel heart remains, but the strength and vitality to carry out that work has diminished over the years.

  • Evangelists primary image

    Evangelists

    The role and work of an ‘evangelist’ has been overlooked by many Christians, or else it has been too broadly defined and understood to the exclusion of those so gifted. The reality is that evangelists are integral to local church life - and we need more of them.

  • Church in the community primary image

    Church in the community

    "Evangelism or social action?" We believe that question is an unhelpful one. Christians should be work hard to be a blessing as they share both the gospel and their lives with their neighbours.

  • Working cross-culturally primary image

    Working cross-culturally

    The reality of multicultural Britain means that we now have the world on our doorstep. World mission begins at home.
