The Association of Evangelicals in Africa embraces member-bodies whose identity and vocation are rooted in historic biblical Christianity. AEA affirms and seeks the biblical unity of Christ's body, the Church, celebrating the diversity of practices and theological emphases consistent with the AEA Statement of Faith, recognizing the existing dynamic tension between undeniable unity and marvelous diversity. Its members join in common concern to live and proclaim the Good News of Jesus amongst all nations and peoples, seeking holiness, justice, and transformation at every level individual, family, community, and culture. In this way the Father is honoured, the kingdom of his Son is extended, and the Holy Spirit's empowering presence moves freely in giftings, community renewal, and ministries.
Regional and National Alliances include regional evangelical fellowships and their national fellowships/alliances.
There are three Affiliate Members at the present time. These are independently incorporated organizations which work in harmony with AEA structures and serving the AEA constituency.
Associate Members are independently incorporated organizations with their own specific ministries and accountability, an international scope of ministry, and the capacity and authority to serve in and beyond the AEA community.
