The Judgment Seat of Christ

Greg Strand – August 6, 2015 Leave a comment

Does the EFCA have a position on the judgment seat of Christ?

The EFCA is premillennial, but allows liberty on the nuances of premillennialism (Dispensational, Progressive, Historic) and the tribulation (pretribulation, midtribulation, pre-wrath, posttribulation.).

This means the EFCA does not take an official position on the bema seat or the judgment seat of Christ (2 Cor. 5:10), and whether or not it is the same or separate from the Great White Throne judgment (Rev. 20:11-15). For some, there is also a separate judgment of the nations (Matt. 25:31-46). The differences of understanding would be related to one’s premillennial view.

Affectionately called “Walking Bible” by his youngest daughter, Greg Strand has a ministry history that goes back to 1982. Since that time, he has served in local church ministry in a variety of ministry capacities: youth pastor, associate pastor of adult ministries and senior pastor. He is currently the EFCA's Executive Director of Theology and Credentialing. Greg reads voraciously and never stops learning — a passion reflected in the overflowing bookshelves that spill from his library to multiple offices. And he could tell you about each of those books! His hunger for learning pales in contrast to his great love for God and for teaching the Word of God.
