"Abuse of power is a misuse of position, authority, or influence to take advantage of, manipulate, or control. Abuse of power occurs when a person with power, regardless of its source, uses that power to harm and/or influence another for personal gain at the other’s expense. All abuse by faith leaders within the church is also spiritual abuse and has spiritual impacts that often heighten the harm caused to individuals and to the family of God."

"The exclusive bond that sexual activity engenders explains why God analogizes his relationship with Israel to that of a lover with the beloved and compares the marriage of a man and a woman to the union of Christ as the bridegroom of the church, his bride. Just as we are God’s beloved and God is ours, so a woman and man in marriage are meant to belong to each other and only to each other. "

We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Universal Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
We believe in one holy Universal and apostolic church. We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look forward to the resurrection of the dead, and the life in the world to come. Amen.
We worship one God in trinity and the trinity in unity, neither blending their persons nor dividing their essence. For the person of the Father is a distinct person, the person of the Son is another, and that of the Holy Spirit still another. But the divinity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is one, their glory equal, their majesty coeternal..."
We believe that our blessedness lies in the forgiveness of our sins
because of Jesus Christ, and that in it our righteousness before God is contained…
Romans 4:6, Romans 3:24, Psalm 143:2
We believe that this true faith, produced in us by the hearing of God’s Word and by the work of the Holy Spirit, regenerates us and makes us new creatures, causing us to live a new life and freeing us from the slavery of sin.
2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 6:4, Galatians 5:6
The Manifestation of God’s Love
this is how God showed his love: he sent his only begotten Son into the world, so that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 1 John 4:9, John 3:16
Q & A 1
Q. What is your only comfort
in life and in death?
A. That I am not my own,1 but belong—
body and soul, in life and in death—
2 to my faithful Savior, Jesus Christ.
3 He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood, 4 and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil. 5 He also watches over me in such a way 6 that not a hair can fall from my head without the will of my Father in heaven; 7 in fact, all things must work together for my salvation. 8 Because I belong to him, Christ, by his Holy Spirit, assures me of eternal life 9 and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready
from now on to live for him.
