Policies

Calvary Chapel of Montesano strives to be a loving and understanding group of God’s people with a heart to be as welcoming of people from different experiences and backgrounds as we are able to be. We believe that Jesus teaching us to, "love our neighbor,” means anyone that we come in contact with in our lives and in the church.  With that in mind, we also believe the teaching in the New Testament to "walk in truth," compels us as Christ Followers to be biblical concerning the areas of Marriage, Gender and Sexuality.

 

MARRIAGE, GENDER and SEXUALITY (taken from Calvary Chapel Montesano Statement of Faith)

 

We believe that God creates each man and woman and that He created them with the immutable and unchangeable nature of male and female, and that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God (Matthew 19:4-5).

 

We believe that God created marriage to be exclusively the union of one biological man and one biological woman (Gen 2:18-25; Matt 19:4-6), and that intimate sexual activity is to occur exclusively within that union (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4).

 

We believe that sexual relations outside of biblical marriage are sinful and offensive to God (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10) and that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Any behavior that contradicts or denigrates the biblical sexual relationship is incompatible with a true biblical witness. (John 4:16-18; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Cor. 5:11; 6:9-11; 6:18-20; 7:1-3; 7:8-9; Gal. 5:19-21; Eph. 5:3-7; 1 Tim. 1:9-11) 

 

Because of these beliefs, and in consideration of the safety and privacy of all church attendees, we ask that those attending our services use the bathroom of their biological sex. 

If this is uncomfortable, we have a single-use unisex bathroom upstairs. Thank you for your understanding. If you have questions regarding these policies, our pastors are happy to speak with you.
