Michindoh Statement of Faith
a. We believe in one God, the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.
b. We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s incarnate Son who lived a perfect life on earth, proclaiming God’s reign and establishing a community of disciples; who sacrificially died on the cross for the sins of all people; who rose in triumph from death, accomplishing salvation for all who truly believe in him; who is now at the Father’s right hand interceding for us; and who will return to earth in victory, judging all people and establishing his everlasting Kingdom.
c. We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired and authoritative Word of God.
d. We believe that human beings, men and women equally, are created in the image of God and are called to be his faithful stewards on earth. Although all people have become alienated from God and affected in every part because of sin, by God’s grace all who truly repent of their sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified by faith.
e. We believe that human families were established by God to perpetuate humankind and to provide a stable community for nurturing children in faith and righteous living. Marriage between one man and one woman is the instruction of Scripture and sexual expression is to be confined to the marriage relationship.
f. We believe that God not only counts believers as righteous, but that he makes them righteous; freeing them of sin’s dominion at conversion, purifying their hearts by faith and perfecting them in love by his Spirit, and providing for their growth in grace through their participation at every stage of their spiritual life, enabling them through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to live a victorious life of righteousness, justice, and practical usefulness.
g. We believe God’s Kingdom promises to establish “a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (2 Pt. 3:13 TNIV) and where resurrected believers will participate in God’s everlasting Kingdom.

Michindoh Policy on Sex, Sexuality, and Gender Identity
Michindoh Conference Center, a Spring Arbor University campus, affirms the full humanity and dignity of every human being, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Among the sins that the Bible clearly condemns is sexual immorality and homosexual behavior (I Corinthians 6:9-11). As an organization that exists for the purpose of bringing glory to God and which holds to the belief that the Bible has authority over all human life, Michindoh Conference Center insists that those in attendance abstain from cohabitation, any involvement in premarital or extramarital sexual activity, or homosexual activity (including same-sex dating behavior) while a guest or attendee at Michindoh Conference Center. This includes the promotion, advocacy, and defense of the aforementioned activities.

While in a fallen world certain medical anomalies are occasionally encountered, Michindoh Conference Center understands gender to be a matter of primary, overt sexual characteristics at birth, other than in cases which these characteristics are ambiguous. We perceive the weight of the implications of Holy Scripture to guide us to reaffirm the birth gender of individuals (Matthew 19:4, Mark 10:6), although we acknowledge that there are persons who genuinely experience gender confusion. That being said, conspicuous examples of cross-dressing or other expressions or actions that are deliberately discordant with birth gender are contrary to Michindoh Conference Center’s commitment to biblical truth and to our Lord. Therefore, Michindoh Conference Center reserves the right to refuse service to groups or individuals who would practice, advocate, promote, or defend views on birth gender that are contrary to Michindoh Conference Center’s stated view.

We recognize that these beliefs may be in conflict with the practice or vision of the larger culture and that there are Christians who have a different interpretations of scripture. However, the previous statements and practices concerning sexuality are in line with Michindoh Conference Center’s related organization, Spring Arbor University, and the Free Methodist Book of Discipline.
