Talk:Evangelical Christian Church in Canada

I find this article confusing and difficult to follow. Would it be possible for someone with knowledge of this denomination to rewrite much of it so that someone with no knowledge of the church or of the restoration movement can make sense of it. For example, it would be great the opening sentence could describe the church briefly, for example "The Evangelical Christian Church in Canada is a relatively new Christian denomination in Canada with X number of churches and Y number of members. It is closely aligned with denomination Z and some of its distinctive and defining doctrines include ..." - I'm assuming that this church is considered a mainstream Christian denomination that recognizes other denominations rather than an exclusive sect that doesn't recognize other denominations - is this right? I also think some of the language needs to be made more neutral. --Graham 18:17, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello Graham:

I believe the reason why there is a certain amount of confusion with The Evangelical Christian Church in Canada is because the The Evangelical Christain Church in Canada and The Canadian Evangelical Christian Church are one and the same organization.

Let me explain - I wanted to request in the past that the name The Canadian Evangelical Christian Church's name has now changed to The Evangelical Christian Church in Canada. That is why the two names are used on the The Canadian Evangelical Christian Church. I didn't know how to make this minor change in name because I don't have access. That is why you will notice two names.

If you can make this change, go ahead and delete the page that says, "The Evangelical Christian Church in Canada."

Does this make some sense?

The page The Evangelical Christian Church in Canada has now been deleted. --Kathleen.wright5 11:56, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

Hello Kathleen:

Thank you for deleting the Evangelical Christian Church in Canada page but the name The Canadian Evangelical Christian Church is not the name of this denomination. The denomination is called the Evangelical Christian Church in Canada. I noticed that the web page The Canadian Evangelical Christian Church has been changed only to fit this name; however, The Canadian Evangelical Christian Church name is no longer used by this organization. The Evangelical Christian Church in Canada is now their new name that is now in use. Is it possible to change this again to reflect the true name of this organization? See website http://www.cecconline.net to see the true name.

Thank you
