ORLANDO, FL – The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) announced today the certification of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando of Orlando, FL.

ECFA certification is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

First Presbyterian Church of Orlando joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 27 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is certified by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to certify a church committed to sharing Christ’s love with others and humbly serving the city of Orlando and beyond,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1876, First Presbyterian Church of Orlando (www.fpco.org) is affiliated with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC).  The EPC is both evangelical and Presbyterian.  First Presbyterian Church of Orlando is evangelical in their zeal for the gospel, as well as evangelism, missions, and living obediently as followers of Jesus.  They embrace the Westminster Confession of Faith as their doctrinal standard and the rule of spiritually mature elders linked together regionally as the best way to guide local congregations.
