Discipline, Recovery and Restoration

The discipline of those with ministerial credentials must be undertaken with special care to protect both the accuser and the accused. Discipline also seeks to protect the purity and the witness of the local congregation. The Word of God places an emphasis on restoration as one of the desired outcomes of discipline.

The EFCA is committed to assist those who have been placed under discipline. By God’s grace we seek to bring personal recovery, reconciliation with others and the restoration of the ministerial credential.
