Or will she hold fast to the word of life, draw courage from Jesus, and unashamedly proclaim his way as the way of life? Will she maintain her clear, counter-cultural witness to a world that seems bent on ruin? We are persuaded that faithfulness in our generation means declaring once again the true story of the world and of our place in it—particularly as male and female.
Christian Scripture teaches that there is but one God who alone is Creator and Lord of all. To him alone, every person owes glad-hearted thanksgiving, heart-felt praise, and total allegiance. This is the path not only of glorifying God, but of knowing ourselves.
To forget our Creator is to forget who we are, for he made us for himself. And we cannot know ourselves truly without truly knowing him who made us. We did not make ourselves. We are not our own.
The Dream Man List
Our true identity, as male and female persons, is given by God. It is not only foolish, but hopeless, to try to make ourselves what God did not create us to be. Jesus said he came that we might have life and have it in overflowing measure. He is for us and not against us. WE AFFIRM that God has designed marriage to be a covenantal, sexual, procreative, lifelong union of one man and one woman, as husband and wife, and is meant to signify the covenant love between Christ and his bride the church.

We also deny that marriage is a mere human contract rather than a covenant made before God. WE DENY that any affections, desires, or commitments ever justify sexual intercourse before or outside marriage; nor do they justify any form of sexual immorality. WE DENY that the divinely ordained differences between male and female render them unequal in dignity or worth.
A DEFINITE DIFFERENCE…
WE DENY that physical anomalies or psychological conditions nullify the God-appointed link between biological sex and self-conception as male or female. WE AFFIRM that those born with a physical disorder of sex development are created in the image of God and have dignity and worth equal to all other image-bearers. WE AFFIRM that people who experience sexual attraction for the same sex may live a rich and fruitful life pleasing to God through faith in Jesus Christ, as they, like all Christians, walk in purity of life.
WE AFFIRM that sin distorts sexual desires by directing them away from the marriage covenant and toward sexual immorality— a distortion that includes both heterosexual and homosexual immorality. WE DENY that an enduring pattern of desire for sexual immorality justifies sexually immoral behavior. WE AFFIRM that it is sinful to approve of homosexual immorality or transgenderism and that such approval constitutes an essential departure from Christian faithfulness and witness. WE DENY that the approval of homosexual immorality or transgenderism is a matter of moral indifference about which otherwise faithful Christians should agree to disagree.
WE AFFIRM that the grace of God in Christ gives both merciful pardon and transforming power, and that this pardon and power enable a follower of Jesus to put to death sinful desires and to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord. WE DENY that the grace of God in Christ is insufficient to forgive all sexual sins and to give power for holiness to every believer who feels drawn into sexual sin. I affirm the Nashville Statement.

Robert A. Samuel W. Jason G. Burk Parsons Copastor, St. Andrew's Chapel. Ray Ortlund Pastor, Immanuel Church. Today, on the eve of our eleventh anniversary, I stand among the wreckage of life with four kids: constant noise, scattered toys, cold coffee, and dirty clothes.
The bombs of infertility, financial distress, and addiction left a desolate wasteland where our marriage once was. But God has remained sovereign in the midst of it all. It looks like cleaning up the kitchen instead of trying to prove a point.
The visceral response to that statement may cause some of you to cringe, but every time I want to question whether this hierarchy is true, I realize that everything in culture fights against it. In fact, the moment we put anything in front of God is the moment we put everything in front of our spouse. A lot of hard, selfless, Christ-centered work.
