Orland Evangelical Free Church is affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America, an association of interdependent churches founded over a century ago. We are called "evangelical" because we: - preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and - believe the Bible is the Word of God. We are also called "free" because each member church is free and autonomous in governance. Orland EV Free is an elder-led, congregational church, an assembly of people with "like-minded faith."
The Orland Evangelical Free Church was established in 1912 by a group of Swedish immigrant families who loved the Lord and wanted to worship Him and reach out to the community and the world. Our services were conducted in Swedish until the 1920's, when the congregation began transitioning into English. For over a century OEFC has been a shining light of the gospel in the community of Orland.
