About Us

Northern Valley has been here in Cresskill, NJ since 1951. We are affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America which was founded in 1884.
The term Evangelical refers to God’s provision of forgiveness of sin and His desire to have a personal, vibrant, and eternal relationship for any who believe.
The term Free is a reference to the absence of denominational structure. Each congregation is free to actively determine its own decisions and ministries.

“No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”  Romans 8:37
Northern Valley Evangelical Free Church is a caring community of Christ-followers who have intentionally partnered to see people locally and globally BEGIN with Christ, BELONG to Christ, and BECOME like Christ.
The mission of Northern Valley Evangelical Free Church is to see people changed from the INSIDE OUT by the person of Christ so they can bring the OUTSIDE IN which is the purpose of Christ.
