All hirees will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement and the following statement of faith:
I believe in One God Who exists in Three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of all things visible and invisible. I believe the Second Person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ, was born of the Virgin Mary, becoming incarnate and dwelling among us. He suffered, was crucified, died, and was buried. On the third day, He rose from the dead, breaking the bonds of death for those who believe. This Paschal Mystery is our salvation--the forgiveness of sin and the redemption of souls. Jesus is the Word made flesh. Through Him all things came to be, and without Him, nothing came to be. I believe in the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, lives among us, guiding us to all Truth. The Holy Spirit is that force which gives us life, as God breathed live into Adam. I believe in one baptism for the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
