Evangelical Convictions, Chapter 9 (Updated)

Following the Conference decision in June 2019 to edit Article 9 of the EFCA Statement of Faith, the Spiritual Heritage wrote an updated draft of Chapter 9 of Evangelical Convictions.

The EFCA Spiritual Heritage Committee is working on the second edition of Evangelical Convictions: A Theological Exposition of the Statement of Faith of the Evangelical Free Church of America.

One of the reasons for this revision is the Conference decision made in June 2019 to edit Article 9, removing the term “premillennial” and replacing it with “glorious.” With this change, we affirm the following: “We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Since Article 9 consists of a change to our Statement of Faith, and since that is the most significant change in this second edition, we provide this revised chapter on Article 9 now, prior to the release of the complete book. The final draft of Article 9 was written by the Spiritual Heritage Committee and vetted by numerous individuals representing various ministries in the EFCA. This was the process followed for the initial publication of Evangelical Convictions, and it will also be followed with the completed second edition.

The complete second edition of Evangelical Convictions will be released later this year, Lord willing. We pray for the fruitful use of this “theological exposition” on “Christ’s Return,” and we ask for your prayer for the completion of the second edition of Evangelical Convictions.
