Our statement of faith
Personhood North Carolina is a Christian organization whose officers and chapter representatives adhere to the Apostles’ Creed as a unified statement of faith, as follows: We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day, He rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
WHAT IS PERSONHOOD?
Personhood is the right to have rights. It’s the basic acknowledgment that all human beings are human and have intrinsic value because they are made in the image of God. Our race, sex, economic status, developmental stage, level of dependency, physical and mental capacity, medical prognosis, manner of conception, contribution to society, and wantedness do not change our humanness. They do not make us more or less valuable, equal, or deserving of protection.
