President Kevin Kompelien encouraged delegates to seek prayerfully the mind of Christ in this important decision and to make sure that all discussion was pleasing and honoring to the Lord of the Church.
On June 19, 2019, delegates of the 132nd EFCA Conference approved the Motion to Amend Article 9 of the Statement of Faith – 79% of voting delegates affirmed the Motion.
Throughout the debate and decision, God’s presence was evident as delegates kept in step with the Spirit (Gal. 5:25), manifested the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23), and left an aroma of Christ (2 Cor. 2:14-16).
The session concluded with President Kevin Kompelien leading attendees in prayer for unity in the EFCA and that the blessed hope of Jesus’ glorious return would motivate us to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.
To God be the glory, great things He has done...and continues to do in the EFCA!
More information will be sent to churches and made available on the EFCA website in the coming weeks.
