Denominational Membership

Uniting the Voices of Evangelicals

Our vision is a thriving evangelical community that is equipped to navigate complexity with biblical clarity. We strive to make our members strong and effective, influence society for justice and righteousness, and gather the many voices of evangelicals together to have a greater impact for Jesus Christ and his cause.

The National Association of Evangelicals represents 40 denominations and serves a constituency of millions. With resources, connections and influence, we help denominations increase their impact for Jesus and his cause. We facilitate collaboration among denominational leaders to demonstrate Christian unity and energize faithful leadership. Building consensus around a biblical perspective fuels the NAE’s role as a champion for evangelical concerns in Washington, D.C.
