Mission
ECM works has a churchplant in Rabka and contributes to the large-scale project 'real hope', where Polish churches and organizations want's to offer the gospel within seven years to each Pool.

Vision
Poland is changing rapidly. The joining of the EU in 2004 hasn’t brought economically, what the Polish people expected. The unemployment rate is high, so a lot of the Polish try to find prosperity in other countries.

The church doesn’t seem to provide what the Polish need either. The formally dominant Roman Catholic church starts to lose influence and members, the number of active believers is decreasing rapidly.

ECM notices in this turbulent times a renewed interest in the Gospel. Through church planting and the project ‘Permanent Hope’ ECM wants to use this opportunity to draw attention to the Gospel in new and refreshing ways. ECM hopes that one day the Gospel, and solely the Gospel, will be the hope of Poland.
