We Believe……………………….
1. We believe morality and immorality has been clearly defined by Scripture. It is our believe that scripture teaches marriage is the union between a man and a woman.(Genesis 2:18, 21-25) In addition, with those long held beliefs we require all employees, parents or adults responsible for a student applying for enrollment or re-enrollment in LCS follow our Scriptural view of morality & immorality: parent/parents are not to cohabit with anyone of the opposite sex as if married whom they are not married to nor cohabit with someone of the same sex living together as married. Parent/parents are to follow Scripture which teaches only a married couple, husband and wife, are to express love in a sexual manor.
2. We believe that, regarding human sexuality, legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Hence, sexual activities, such as, but not limited to, adultery, fornication, incest, homosexuality, pedophilia and bestiality are inconsistent with the teachings of the Bible. Further, lascivious behavior, the creation and/or distribution and/or viewing of pornography, and efforts to alter one’s gender are incompatible with the biblical witness. LCS is an official ministry of Conroe First Assembly of God which hold these beliefs. We are responsible to and gladly uphold all beliefs of our church and fellowship referred to as “the General Council of the Assemblies of God”.
