We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of EAPTC International as the Body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to the EAPTC members and community, it is imperative that all persons employed by EAPTC in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Faith Statement.
Marriage / Gender / Sexuality
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture such as Gen 2:18-25; 1 Cor 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb 13:4; Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor 6:9-10. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God.
