Although VBC is a member of the Evangelical Free Church of America (EFCA), and subscribes to their statement of faith ( https://www.efca.org/explore/what-we-believe) the church government of VBC remains congregational in nature. In other words, VBC has autonomy to pursue God’s unique calling for us in Hot Springs Village as determined by those chosen to represent the local body at large. We carefully distinguish VBC as being Elder “led”, rather than Elder “ruled”. We believe that God desires unity in the local church and confirms His direction through the work of His Holy Spirit in the counsel and affirmation of His body.
