Position of applicant (title):

Statement of Purpose: Fourth Memorial Church's (FMC) facilities were provided through God's benevolence and by the sacrificial generosity of church members. The church desires that its facilities be used for the fellowship of the Body of Christ and always to God's glory. We may make our facilities available to members, faithful attenders, and approved non-member persons and groups who align with our purpose and beliefs. Facility use will not be permitted to persons or groups holding, advancing, or advocating beliefs, or advancing, advocating, or engaging in practices that conflict with the church's faith or moral teachings, which are summarized in the church's bylaws and Statement of Faith. This restricted facility use policy is necessary for two important reasons. First, the church may not in good conscience materially cooperate in activities or beliefs that are contrary to its faith. Allowing its facilities to be used for purposes that contradict FMC's beliefs would be material cooperation with that activity, and would be a grave violation of the church's faith and religious practice. Second, it is very important to FMC that it presents a consistent message to the community, which the church staff and members conscientiously maintain as part of their witness for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To allow facilities to be used by groups or persons who express beliefs or engage in practices contrary to the church's faith would have a negative impact on the message that FMC strives to promote. It could also be a source of confusion and scandal to church members and the community because they may reasonably perceive that, by allowing use of our facilities, the church is in agreement with the beliefs or practices of the persons or groups using FMC's facilities. Therefore, our facilities shall not be used by persons, groups, or for activities contrary to our beliefs as referenced above. This policy applies to all FMC's facilities, because the church sees all of its property as set apart to the worship of God.
