Our Mission


Oxlip Evangelical Free Church desires to serve Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth.


As seen from County Road 5, the original Oxlip Evangelical Free Church building was the joining of two smaller Swedish Mission churches from the turn of the 20th century.  An addition put on in 1980, which became the new center for worship and fellowship, the latest in 2013 provided handicap access and extra room.  Oxlip EFC still consists of a group of hard-working, down-to-earth people who rely on their faith in God for the day-to-day challenges of life.

Oxlip EFC is the country church with a congregation size that helps you feel welcome and "at home".  Come and join us.  We would be happy to share a cup of coffee with you.

Many faces, one faith.

We are a diverse group of believers – bankers, musicians, social workers, teachers, public servants, business owners, parents  – united by our shared faith in a loving heavenly Father.
