statement of faith

Apostles’ Creed:  I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.  I 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 again to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic [Universal] Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  AMEN.


Sanctity of Life:  I believe that human life begins at conception.  I believe that it is a grave sin to deliberately kill an unborn child for any reason other than to prevent the death of the mother.  I will not be complicit in encouraging or facilitating an abortion.


Sanctity of Marriage:  I believe that marriage is exclusively a covenant that one man and one woman make with each other and with God.  I recognize the legal right of others to hold and practice other views of marriage.


Pledge:  While representing the MACCC, my personal conduct and my communication to clients will be consistent with this Statement of Faith.  If I find that I am unwilling or unable to honor this pledge, I will immediately resign from the MACCC.
