Two Camps – One Dynamic Ministry.
Stayner Camp is owned and operated by Evergreen Christian Ministries
At Evergreen Christian Ministries (ECM), every week of camp is designed to deepen your faith journey, be a fun environment for all ages, and create a community where everyone feels welcome. We are a Christian camping organization, and we strive to share Jesus with campers in a variety of fun and meaningful ways. Our staff are carefully screened and trained and love serving everyone who attends the camp. Our campers come from many backgrounds, everyone is welcome! If you have questions about us or our faith please contact us. We love to talk about our camps and what we believe.
Stayner has a sister camp! ECM also operates Camp Mishewah, located on beautiful Round Lake near Killaloe, Ontario. Mishewah is open May 24th through Labor Day. Offering family camps, youth camps and seasonal camping, Mishewah has a program for every member of your family. Visit the Mishewah Website for more info.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in our Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless humanity, His divine miracles, His bodily death and resurrection, His ascension, His ongoing mediatorial work, and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful people through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, received by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling believers are enabled to live a holy life to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the unity in the spirit of al true believers, the Body of Christ, and the local church at the tangible expression of the Body of Christ.
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.
We believe the Holy Scriptures (the Bible), as originally given by God, are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and are the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
These are the non-negotiable essentials of the Christian faith. The statement is Orthodox and Evangelical. Orthodox means in agreement with the historic teaching of the Christian faith as expressed in the historic creeds. Evangelical means an emphasis on the biblical gospel about salvation by faith in Christ and new life (regeneration) by the transforming work of the Holy Spirit. This new life is essential to the Christian walk.
