At the EFCA One conference in June 2017, the Board of Directors introduced a motion to amend our Articles of Incorporation by replacing the word "premillennial" with "glorious" in Article Nine of the Statement of Faith. This motion will be considered for action by the Conference in 2019. In order to foster discussion of this motion, this rationale for the proposed change has been presented.
We look forward to opportunities at District Conferences and at the EFCA Theology Conference to consider further the issues related to this proposal. We trust that our discussions will be held in a spirit worthy of the gospel and honoring to our Lord.
Why should we speak of the "personal, bodily and glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ" rather than the "personal, bodily and premillennial return of our Lord Jesus Christ" as a required theological position in the EFCA?
