About ECPA
The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) is an international non-profit trade organization comprised of member companies that are involved in the publishing and distribution of Christian content worldwide. Since 1974, ECPA has strengthened Christian publishing by building networking, information, and advocacy opportunities within the industry and throughout multiple channels so that our members can more effectively produce and deliver transformational Christian content.

Through this growing network of people and organizations, ECPA serves as a focal point of thought and activity for evangelical publishers throughout the world. Though our publishers are by their nature competitors, they share a common vision to produce Christian content to a world in need.

This has been ECPA's vision from the beginning, and it continues to be, as we provide programs and services that advocate on behalf of our members; provide networking opportunities that increase their access to each other; deliver cutting-edge education, data and information; and raise awareness of their products in the marketplace.



ECPA's mission is to equip our members so they can more effectively make the Christian message more widely known.

We accomplish our mission through member programs that advocate for our members and the industry; provide access to key data and programs that inform strategic business decisions; and offer opportunities to network and connect with industry colleagues, experts, customers and vendors.



ECPA was organized in 1974 at a meeting of publishers of Christian literature. Since then ECPA has served the industry with programs and services to help our members make the Christian message more widely known.  Take a look at our history, industry milestones, photos, and what other publishers say about the value of ECPA:


Statement of Faith  

The content produced by ECPA’s publishing members must not conflict with the Association’s Statement of Faith.

The Statement of Faith of the Association is as follows:

I. We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
II. We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
III. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
IV. We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
V. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
VI. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
VII. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

(This Statement of Faith is essentially identical to that of the National Association of Evangelicals.)
