Credentialing: Policies

Additional guiding policies

In addition to the general requirements for a candidate to be credentialed in the EFCA, there are a few additional policies guiding the process of qualification:

  • Homosexual Belief and Conduct: The EFCA will not credential one who engages in homosexual conduct or one who does not believe that homosexual behavior is sinful, even though remaining celibate.
  • Sexual Abuse of a Minor: Any person convicted or credibly accused of sexual misconduct with a minor will not be credentialed in the EFCA.
  • Policy on Spiritual and Character Qualifications (PSCQ): Those who apply for an EFCA credential must be examined for evidence or demonstration of the qualifying standards set forth in Scripture (I Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:6-9; I Peter 5:1-4).
