European Christian Mission’s vision is to see the peoples of Europe transformed in the name of Jesus Christ. This is our dream and aspiration and it motivates everything we do.
Our purpose, or reason for being, is to glorify God by the planting and developing of reproducing churches that evangelise and disciple the peoples of Europe.
ECM is about facilitating church planting in Europe, but our identity as a mission is principally expressed through our shared values which establish the unique culture of ECM.
ECM believes that through planting and developing churches which evangelise and disciple the people of Europe, we will see the continent transformed in the name of Jesus Christ.
ECM plants churches in places in Europe where the gospel is rarely or no longer heard.
ECM’s focus is for new church plants to become self-supporting and independent of mission agencies, and to develop future leaders.
ECM sees every church as a visible witness of the gospel in society and therefore encourages the members to be actively involved.
ECM gives priority to the spiritual growth of the believers in the church through teaching, training and equipping with resources.
ECM aims to encourage relevant expressions of church in each location as well as partnering across denominational barriers.
ECM works with the local church in each country and where possible with other mission agencies and organisations
In the last 10 years, ECM has been involved in 158 church planting initiatives, and is currently working in 80 different ministries and projects.
