Statement of Faith

What We Believe

The Head Covering Movement finds its unity with other Christians not based upon our view of head covering or even the principle behind the symbol (though we think both are important). Our unity with other Christians is tied to our understanding of who God is and what the Gospel is. On this page, we have included a gospel presentation as well as two statements of faith that we affirm.

To learn about our purpose, values, and beliefs about head covering (and biblical manhood/womanhood), please visit this page.


The Gospel

We believe “The Story” is a faithful telling of the Gospel message. You can read it here or watch it below:

Statement of Faith

The Head Covering Movement affirms an ancient creed (Nicene) and a modern statement of faith (National Association of Evangelicals). All team members, contributors, and those who create new threads in our community group must in good conscience affirm one of them.

National Association of Evangelicals statement

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  • We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
begotten from the Father before all ages,
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made;
of the same essence as the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and was made human.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory
to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will never end.

And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life.
He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic1) The word “catholic” in the creed means “universal.” This means there is one church across all times, places, and peoples. It is not referring to the Roman Catholic Church. and apostolic church.

We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come. Amen.
