The CNEF provides a platform for exchange, reflection and dialogue with a view to strengthening bonds and increasing the visibility of French protestant evangelicalism, whilst respecting its diversity. The CNEF represents around 75% of the French evangelical movement.

In the spirit of the founding charter of the CNEF, its members commit themselves to the following code of conduct.

Members of the CNEF seek to express their unity in Christ in a solid way by creating brotherly links with each other. They uphold an attitude of brotherliness and goodness between themselves, without any spirit of competition, disparagement or superiority. The leaders of churches and other works commit themselves to express and promote this attitude within their community or organisation.

Members of the CNEF seek to favour dialogue and collaboration, whilst maintaining respect for the identity and the integrity of other members, as well as for their projects. They seek to be particularly attentive to the development of quality relationships between members, whilst always respecting each other’s identity. They agree on the essential points of faith as declared in the statement of faith, though they retain the freedom to differ as to each other’s particularities.

Members of the CNEF agree to keep each other informed of their projects, especially with regard to church planting, seeking to respect the work of others as to the gospel witness in a particular place. Even when collaboration with another member is not fully possible for theological, historical or practical reasons, an attitude of respect and openness will still be shown. Members seek to avoid controversy on points of difference, and try to express fellowship in a positive way as much as is possible.

Members of the CNEF agree to avoid condemning other members who have contact and work with other Christian partners. They will not take part in anything that seeks to discredit the work of another church or work, like spreading rumours or unkind words. On the contrary they will seek to cultivate a brotherly attitude, whilst always having the possibility to put the other’s choices to question.

Because they recognise that all are members of the body of Christ, the members of the CNEF will not try to attract members from other communities. They respect the freedom of choice of their members and help them, in the case of change, in such a way as to ensure that all is done with consultation and openness.

In general, members of the CNEF are encouraged to copy locally that which is in place on a national scale and to take great care in their relationships with other members. They encourage projects organised by the CNEF and also, where possible, those by other members.

In this way the members of the CNEF seek, by their behaviour and their relationships, to favour the advancement of the reign of God and to accomplish their vocation, which is to serve and to witness to the same Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, by the grace of God.
