Ohio Value Voters Statement of Faith and Values
The Holy Bible is inspired by God, without any mixture of error and it reveals the principles by which God will judge us. Therefore it is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried.
There is only one living and true God. He is an infinite, intelligent Creator and Supreme Ruler of the Universe. In the unity of the Godhead there are three Persons, the Father, the Son, and Holy Ghost equal in every Divine perfection and executing distinct, but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.
Every person is a sinner, therefore by nature utterly void of the holiness required by the law of God. This sinful state has invited God’s condemnation and eternal punishment upon each individual. God revealed His love by providing His Son, Jesus Christ, as the only mediatorial offering for sin; thus, the salvation of sinners is totally by grace through faith without any works or merit.
God created the first man and woman, a husband and wife, establishing the family unit as a model and pattern for every family to follow. God ordained marriage to be only between a man and a woman, intended to last until death and established that the parents possess the primary responsibility to rear their children according to His commands.
Life is sacred, it begins at conception and from conception until natural death and should be respected as the creation of God.
Social government is ordained of God and every Christian should subject themselves to this minister as long as it does not conflict with the authority of our Sovereign God and His Word. We should do all we can to promote justice and righteousness in our society and government so all may be benefited to live spiritually and righteously before God.
