Statement of Faith
With the Association of Montrose Churches, we affirm that the basis for belief is the Apostle’s Creed and a commitment to Biblical and historic Christian faith and practice:
I believe in God, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and was buried.
He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian/Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins and the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
In addition to this Creed, we affirm our belief in the Bible as the standard for faith and practice, our belief in Jesus as the Son of God Who saves all who believe from their sin. And our belief that humans are sinful and must receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We believe God established marriage to be a lifelong covenant relationship between one man and one woman. Marriage so defined is the only permissible context for intimate sexual expression and is the foundation for human families.
We welcome all participants who affirm and endorse these orthodox standards through faith and practice.
