In the fall of 2007 Greg Strand, the director of EFCA biblical theology and credentialing, taught an 11-week series through the newly adopted Statement of Faith (which was at that time a Proposed Revision), beginning with an introductory lesson, followed by a lesson on each article. This series is available for you to use in your small group or Bible study.

This is the lesson for Article 4 of the current EFCA Statement of Faith adopted in 2008.

Article 4

Jesus Christ

4. We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus—Israel's promised Messiah—was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
