Statement of Faith
Called to Peace Ministries is an evangelical, nondenominational parachurch ministry. We hold to the basic tenants of the faith as passed down by the church fathers and set forth in the Apostle's Creed. We believe that God's Word is the standard by which Christians are to live their lives.
At CTPM we believe that there should be unity when it comes to the essentials of the faith and liberty in the non-essentials. We allow for freedom of conscience when it comes to matters of theology that are not as clear or central to the Bible’s teaching. Our staff, board and volunteers are made up of people from various denominations who choose to respect one other in spite of doctrinal differences. When working with clients, we choose to maintain the same stance. We do not impose our theology on anyone related matters such as divorce and remarriage, headship/submission and other issues that are widely debated among Evangelicals. We will work within your doctrinal framework and respect your stance as long as it does not endanger victims of abuse. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He 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,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,*
the communion of the saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
* Note: the word catholic in the creed simply means the universal church made up of all Believers regardless of denomination.
