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 5 of the current EFCA Statement of Faith adopted in 2008.
The Work of Christ
5. We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.
