Purpose & Belief

What CEF is all about?

Mission Statement

Child Evangelism Fellowship® is a Bible-centred, worldwide organisation, composed of born-again believers, whose purpose is to evangelise boys and girls with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and to establish (disciple) them in the Word of God and in a local church for Christian living.

We endeavour to do this through various ministries to children and young people, together with other Christians and local evangelical churches. Child Evangelism Fellowship is the world’s largest evangelistic outreach to children, reaching over 25 million children in over 200 countries each year.

We have a promotional booklet with more information about different CEF ministries available for download.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to reach every child in every nation, every day.
