In the midst of denominational controversies we affirm the unique lordship of Christ, the authority of scripture, and the guidance of the confessions. The diversity in our evangelical congregation requires leaders to be wise as we consider options for the future. We agree with the values of the Fellowship of Presbyterians. We affirm and abide by the former ordination standard G-6.106b which reads as follows: ‘Those who are called to office in the church are to lead a life in obedience to Scripture and in conformity to the historic confessional standards of the church. Among these standards is the requirement to live either in fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman, or chastity in singleness.’ We also affirm our love for and fellowship with sister and brother Presbyterians who may disagree with us.
