The following proposed amendments to the BMAA Doctrinal Statement presented by Springhill Baptist Church, Greenbrier, Arkansas.
Article III – CREATION
C. Man – As the crowning work of His creation, God created humankind (man and female) in His own image (Psa. 8; Gen. 1:27, 2:7). Consequently, every person from conception is of inherent dignity and worth and merits the respect of all other persons (Psa. 51:5; Psa. 139:13-16; Gen. 9:6; Matt. 10:28-31; James 3:9)
D. Marriage – God created marriage (Gen. 1:27-28; 2:23-24). Jesus Christ declared the Creator’s intention for marriage to be the inseparable and exclusive union between a man and a woman (natural man and natural woman) (Matt. 19:4-6; Mark 10:6-9). Marriage testifies of the union between Christ and the church (Eph. 5:31-32; Rom. 1:25-27)
