HOW WE DO IT

OUTREACH THAT CAN BE MEASURED

 The Memphis Christian Pastors Network [MCPN] is a fellowship of ethnically and denominationally diverse church pastors who seek faithfully to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and practice the 2nd greatest commandment [Matt. 22:36-39]. MCPN subscribes to the Apostle’s Creed [see appendix 1] as its unifying theological document and actively seeks the peace and well-being of every citizen in Memphis/Shelby County [Jer. 29:1-13]. As pastors we convened on several occasions over the summer of 2016, because of deep concern about national and local reports of race-based injustices regarding policing practices, persistent racial tensions and violence among our neighbors in Memphis/Shelby County. We recognize our need to adequately acknowledge our racial history in the Mid-South and holistically use our influence to address systemic conditions. 

A total of 67 Churches have pledge financial support to the MCPN.  They comprise a wide variety of denominations, sizes, and sections of the City. 

UNITY STATEMENT OF MCPN

WHAT UNITES US

The Apostles' Creed

(Traditional & Most Used Contemporary Version)

I believe in God, the Father almighty,

creator of heaven and earth.


I believe 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;

**On the third day he rose again;

he ascended into heaven,

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
 

I 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.

Amen.

*The word “catholic” in the creed means “universal,” referring to all Jesus' Followers

**Some versions include the words: "He descended into hell" or “he descended to the dead.”
