Mission & Work

Mission Statement

The mission of the National Association of Evangelicals is to honor God by connecting and representing evangelical Christians.


Areas of Work

Church & Faith

We work to make denominations strong and effective and to support churches and ministries. Our breadth and diversity of partners allow us to organize gatherings, conversations and movements that are unrivaled.

Public Policy

We work through our Office of Government Relations to represent evangelical concerns to the government and to mobilize evangelicals to engage in the public sphere. Our landmark document “For the Health of the Nation: An Evangelical Call to Civic Responsibility” guides the government relations work. Our Washington staff is instrumental in the formation and defense of key policies of concern to evangelicals.

Chaplains Commission

We work through our Chaplains Commission to provide support and endorsement for evangelicals to minister as chaplains to three branches of the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Commission also champions free exercise and expression of faith in our nation’s military institutions.

World Relief

We work through World Relief in bringing humanitarian assistance to suffering people in the name of Christ in the United States and throughout the world. World Relief ministries focus on poverty, disease, hunger, persecution and the effects of war and disasters.
