The Doctrinal Statement of the Kootenai Community Church

"We believe that God has given sex to the human race for the purposes of procreation and recreation and that no intimate sexual activity is to be engaged in outside of marriage between a man and a woman. (Proverbs 5:15-23; 1 Corinthians 7:2-5; Hebrews 13:4). We believe that any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery and pornography are sinful perversions of God's gift of sex (Genesis 2:24; 19:5, 13; 26:8-9; Leviticus 18:1-30; Romans 1:26-29; 1 Corinthians 5:1; 6:9; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Hebrews 13:4). We believe that God rejects any attempt to alter one's gender by surgery or appearance"

The Doctrinal Statement of the Kootenai Community Church

"We believe that men and women are spiritually equal in position before God but that God has ordained distinct and separate spiritual functions for men and women in the home and the Church. The husband is to be the leader of the home and men are to be the leaders (pastors/elders and deacons) of the Church. Accordingly, only men are eligible for licensure and ordination by the Church"
