Differences of the 7 major denomination about : Nature of Mary

Recommended Posts

Roman Catholics differ significantly from Protestant denominations in regards to Mary, the mother of Jesus. Here are the different beliefs about Mary:

  • Anglican/Episcopal: Anglicans believe Jesus was conceived and born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. "They...have difficulties with Catholic belief in her immaculate conception—the idea...that Mary was free from the stain of original sin from the moment of her own conception..." (Guardian Unlimited)
  • Assembly of God and Baptist: Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. (Luke 1:34–38). Though "highly favored" by God (Luke 1:28), Mary was human and conceived in sin.
  • Lutheran: Jesus was conceived and born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. (Based on the Lutheran confession of The Apostles' Creed.)
  • Methodist: Mary was a virgin both when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. The United Methodist Church does not subscribe to the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception—that Mary herself was conceived without original sin. (UMC)
  • Presbyterian: Jesus was conceived and born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. Mary is honored as "God-bearer" and a model for Christians. (PCUSA)
  • Roman Catholic: From conception, Mary was without original sin, she is the Immaculate Conception. Mary is the "Mother of God." Mary was a virgin when she conceived Jesus and when she gave birth. She remained a virgin throughout her life. Catechism - 2nd Edition
