The EFCC Board of Elders would like to welcome you to the EFCC Statement of Faith web page. This page will provide you with the following:
• The current and proposed EFCC Statements of Faith with coinciding supportive Scripture. (Links to the full version of each statement can be found below, after the Final Thoughts video in the Process and History section.)
• Video links to explanations and dialogue by Lead Pastor Ryan Paulson and Pastor Greg Lane.
• An explanation of the process and purpose of doing a Statement of Faith refresh including historical information.
We invite our entire church body to learn, engage and ask questions while only the members will vote on the new proposed Statement of Faith on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 4PM on the EFCC Field at our Annual Meeting. Please join us in praying for a deeper love for God as we go through this process together.
Preamble to the Statement of Faith
Following is an introduction to the process and the new preamble to the proposed Statement of Faith (note: the current Statement of Faith does not contain a Preamble section). The Board of Elders has been led by the Lord to propose a refreshed Statement of Faith which will continue to guide and unite us as a church family around the truth of the Scriptures.
Text of the Preamble to the Proposed EFCC Statement of Faith:
“We are grateful to God for revealing Himself to us through the Scriptures and trust Him to continually show us His will through His Word. Since it is the responsibility of the Board of Elders to guard, guide, and govern the church, the Board is the church’s authority when it comes to explaining and practicing all that is written in the EFCC Statement of Faith.”
