EFCA STATEMENT OF FAITH PDF

Our bylaws are also available. We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory. We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged.

The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission. This motion was unanimously and enthusiastically adopted by the Board of Directors in February, Because the motion involves a proposed amendment to the Articles of Incorporation, the motion was presented to the Conference but cannot be acted upon until the Conference and must receive the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the membership of the Conference present and voting.

The board strongly believes that this motion allows time for necessary and important conversations as a movement. The proposed amendment of Article 9 of the Statement of Faith came to the Board of Directors as a recommendation of the Spiritual Heritage Committee, and was based on multiple interactions the Spiritual Heritage Committee had with EFCA pastors and leaders across the country, and ReachGlobal staff around the world.

Having given careful and prayerful consideration to the recommendation of the Spiritual Heritage Committee, the Board of Directors is in full agreement that this is the right time for these conversations.

The affirmations are theological essentials because they relate to our salvation; they are all vitally connected to the gospel. We believe this, and nothing else, should be our primary point of identity in the EFCA. The EFCA is a gospel-centered movement, united in common commitment to the essentials of the gospel — and further united in mission.

The motion to amend Article 9 of the Statement of Faith was introduced at the business session of the EFCA Conference but cannot be acted upon until the Conference. The EFCA Board of Directors is available to answer any questions you might have regarding the proposed amendment and to receive any input that you may wish to share.

The conversation this motion initiates is vital to the EFCA movement. If you would like to communicate with the board, you are welcome you to do so at boardofdirectors efca. Related Resources.

Disagreement and debate on several issues is common, but it makes for some fantastic staff meetings! For example, it is not uncommon to have young earth creationists and theistic evolutionists in the same congregation. Everyone agrees that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, but differences of opinion regard HOW to properly interpret the Bible hermeneutics. In fact, ALL of the pastors I knew growing up — not to mention the majority of the large church staff I was a part of — were committed Calvinists who affirmed determinism!

What we believe

The churches voted to alter the Statement of Faith. The change comes to article nine, which previously stated: We believe in the personal, bodily and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission. Neither are the people who voted for the change.
