AEL is the largest network of Christian churches and agencies of Evangelical persuasion in Liberia that is responding to human needs with spiritual guidance, compassion, and practical care. The Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL) dates back to 1964 when visiting American Assembly of God Evangelist, Paul Olson, motivated Christians in Liberia to unite and evangelize the country in obedience to Jesus Christ’s Great Commission.

In 1964

Evangelist Paul Olson challenged Christians in Liberia while holding a week-long Gospel Crusade at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia.

LEF caught Evangelist Olson’s vision

In 1968, five (5) Mission Agencies in Liberia caught Evangelist Olson’s vision and organized themselves into Liberia Evangelical Fellowship (LEF). The five mission agencies were: Assembly of God Mission, Free Pentecostal Mission, Open Bible Standard Mission of Liberia, Liberia Inland Mission, and Sudan Interior Mission (SIM – ELWA—Now Serving in Mission).

LEF name changed to AEL

The Evangelical body later changed its name to the Association of Evangelicals of Liberia (AEL), broadened its objectives and became inter-denominational.

Sole Purpose of AEL

The sole purpose for organizing the Association was to evangelize Liberia and beyond, and demonstrate Christ-like love and compassion to all who are in need.

SIM-ELWA’s Rev. A. Jonathan Shea became LEF’s first Secretary. When the Association established its Secretariat in 1989, Pastor Gonwo T. Dahnweih of United Liberia Inland Church (ULIC) and Scripture Union of Liberia became its first General Secretary.


"We are the largest network of Christian churches and agencies of Evangelical persuasion in Liberia. We respond to human needs with spiritual guidance, compassion, and practical care...!"

WE BEELIEVE: 1. Holy Scriptures originally given by God are verbally inspired, infallible and hold supreme authority in matters of faith and conduct (2Tim 3:16, 2Pe 2:21; Mt 24:35; Ps 119:105).

2. The Godhead is one God eternally existent in three Persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Ps 102:27; Mt 28:19; Jn 5:7)

3. The Lord Jesus Christ is God -in –flesh; (Col 2:9) in whom dwells the whole fullness of deity or Godhead (Col 2:9); His virgin birth (Isa 7:14); His sinless human life, Heb. 4; 15); His divine miracles (Acts 2:22); His vicarious and atoning death (1Pe 3:18); His bodily resurrection (1Pe 1:3); His ascension (Mk 16:19); His work as Mediator (1Ti 2:4); and His personal return in power and glory ( Lk. 21:27).

4. The Holy Spirit glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ (John 6:63); convicts the world of sin (Jn 16:7-8); regenerates sinners upon believing in Christ (Ro 8:9); intercedes on their behalf (Ro 8:26, 27 ); and indwells believers, sanctifies them by the truth and enables them to live holy lives, witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ (Jn 14,16,17; 1Pe 1:2; Acts 1:18).

5. Humanity’s Fall: Humanity is sinful, fallen and unable to save themselves (Gen 3; Rom 3:23).

6. Sin is lawlessness (1Jn 3:4); wrongdoing (1Jn 5:17); failing to do the right thing one knows to do (Jas 4:17); humanity’s ungodliness and unrighteousness (Ro 1:18); trespassing against God’s law (Mt 6:12).

7. Satan or the devil is a wicked fallen angel, the author of sin and God’s archenemy (Jn 8:44; 1Jn 3:8, Mt 13:38-39). He is the prince of all the powers of darkness (Jn 14:30; Eph 6:11, 12) and is destined to the judgment of eternal punishment in the lake of fire (Rev 28:10; Mt 25:41). Through humanity’s fall and because of sin, the entire human race is lost and in enmity against God (Ro 5:12).

8. Salvation is God’s offer to redeem fallen humanity. Though fallen humanity is not beyond redemption, they can experience God’s gracious favor and provision for their salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ’s atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven and His eminent physical return to earth someday (Ro 5:8; 1Pe 1:18-19). This salvation is appropriated by faith, apart from works, and through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit (Ro 10:9-10; Eph 2:8-9; Tit 3:5).

9. The Church is the assembly of all such people who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, having been regenerated by the Holy Spirit, are spiritually united in the body of Christ of which He is the head (Acts 2:47; Co 12:14, 27; Col 1:8). We also believe in the existence of the Local Church, which is the visible part of this body.

a. It is the duty of the Church and its members to witness and seek to win the lost to Christ (Mt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8).

b. The Church is separate from the state, but we acknowledge our responsibilities toward earthly governments (Ro13:1-7; Lk 20:21-25).

c. The Church is to maintain purity in its doctrine and life and separate from sin (2Co 6:14-18; 1Co 3:16-17); apostasy (Col 2:4-8; 1Ti 6:20, Tit 3:9-11); and from those who walk disorderly (2Thess 3:11-13).

10. Eminent Return and Final Judgment are part of God’s agenda. Jesus Christ will return to earth visibly and receive those He has redeemed to Himself and finally judge the world (Mt 23:29-31; 25:31-46; Acts 1:11; 1The 4:16; 2Co 5:10; He 9:27; Rev 20:11-15).

11. Death and Resurrection await humanity. The dead will be raised back to life bodily, believers to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment away from God in hell (Jn 5:28-29; 1The 4:16; Rev 20:11-15).

12. Heaven and Hell are real destinations for human beings after death. Heaven is a place of bliss in God’s presence that awaits God’s children (Rev 21) but hell is a place of torment and torture away from God’s presence and awaits all who die in rebellion against God (Rev 20:12-15).

    AEL graduates Ebola Survivors & Affected in Soap Production

    In March 2014, Liberia suffered an outbreak of a dreaded disease, the Ebola virus disease. The EVD epidemic took a significant economic and social toll on Liberia. This was a strange type of disease that many Liberians knew little or nothing about. As such, at the onset, the disease was interpreted in many ways. Some Liberians interpreted it as demonic and devilish requiring spiritual remedies, while others thought it was a myth, yet others said it was a government strategy to solicit over sea support, among others. Whatever it may have been, we lost over 5,000 lives, schools and hospitals were closed for a significant period of time and the vulnerability of our population doubled. As a consequence, it had very negative impacts not only on the health system and the social fabrics, but also on the mental and economic conditions of the survivors, affected families and the wider communities. The disease led to significant losses of lives, property, esteem, social relations and income sources as businesses were shut down causing substantial unmet needs. But most importantly, fear permeated every spectrum of our country as stigmatization became the order of the day. However, in pursuit of the government’s goal to eradicate the Ebola Virus Disease epidemic and stabilize the economy, government and all her partners (INGOs and NGOs) including AEL made significant progress in eradicating the EVD, and putting the country back on the path to economic stability through many projects implemented. One of those project was Soap Production Project.

    This component of this project provided support to national priority after the Ebola outbreak to the “Liberia Economic Stabilization and Recovery plan” Social Protection and Welfare” with special emphasis on specific “Strategic Objectives: To build a comprehensive and fiscally sustainable social protection system that support the poorest and most vulnerable households and groups in their recovery from the EVD crisis and builds their resilience against risks and future shocks.”

    During the project implementation, 300 Ebola survivors and affected persons benefited from three months training in soap production and were provided start-up packages (a bag of caustic soda, 15 gallons of palm a large tub, a pair of horse, a pack of plastic bag, etc.). The training was originally planned for 200 Ebola Survivors and affected. But due to interest generated in the program, upon request to Tearfund, additional funding was provided to train 100 additional beneficiaries (94 females and 6 males). In total, 75 males and 225 females benefited from the soap making program totalling 300 beneficiaries. In an effort to create an easy access to beneficiaries in soap production, three new soap production sites/factories were constructed and furnished in three project communities (David Cooper and Peter Town in Margibi and Rock Hill Community in Montserrado). These production centers, have added more effectiveness and have reduced distances beneficiaries travel in order to produce their soap. The lives of these beneficiaries have been impacted through the soap production in the following ways: i. Skills have been enhanced or provided to vulnerable Ebola survivors and affected who thought they could not survive with the loss of their breadwinner ii. Soap produced are sold and profit generated are used for the payment of children school fees, settlement of medical, daily provision of food, etc. iii. Self-independence and reliance have been realized as a result of interest generated from soap production. While group production has been encouraged, most of the beneficiaries preferred individual production. According to interviews with some of those concerned, individual production will provide a venue for more time for the production process and ensure effectiveness in sales. This also brings about competitiveness into the production and sale. While others have been progressing on the soap production, others (figure will be determined after impact survey analysis) have changed from soap production to other businesses such as coal burning, sale of local produces etc.

    Update on the Jersey Food Security Project

    The Liberia Ebola Recovery project with funding from Jersey through TEARFUND UK is a three years intervention in two districts (Kakata and Gibi districts) in Margibi county, Liberia. There are four hundred beneficiaries of both Ebola survivals and effected. This project is designed to expand the choices and opportunities for men and women farmers to engage in and lead competitive value added agricultural production and marketing efforts at community level through a farmer direct machanism that prioritizes local innovation and ownership, as well as household food access and supply.

    Conservation based methods and farmer field school approaches to building capacity in agronomic skills and practices, and a range of tailored nutrition knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAPS) will help contribute to the project goals i.e. improved food, nutrition and income security for targeted population.The project is currently in its second year of implementation.
