OUR VISION
 
We are devoted to being a transformed community of passionate Christ followers on mission together, striving to bring glory to God by; reaching up in surrender, reaching in with love and reaching out to serve a broken world.
 
 
 
Our Mission
Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ who both individually and corporately love and glorify God through celebrating the worship of God, cultivating spiritual growth in all believers, caring for people in the name of Christ, and communicating the Gospel to the world.

Our History
God graciously birthed the Evangelical Free Church of Hastings in the living room of a home on September 26, 1972 – over 4 decades ago! Don and Donna Nelson had a vision for what God could do in Hastings and the surrounding region. They saw the need for a dynamic vital evangelical body of believers where the Word of God was central, relationships were primary, and outreach to those without Christ was part of the DNA of the group. Read more >
