Homosexuality and the Church (Christian Chronicle)

Excerpt:

By reaching out to people “at the margins of society,” the Agape Church of Christ in Portland, Ore., naturally connects with people who identify as gay and lesbian, minister Ron Clark said.

“At Agape, we state that we have a conservative view of the Bible, but all people are welcome,” he said.

Notes

This church's marriage policy states that marriage is "between [...] man and woman".

Notes

This church's actively enforced policy implies, but fails to clearly state that women cannot be elders in this church, although they may "work together" with husbands who are elders and "accompany them in ministry." Therefore, its score is Unclear: Non-Egalitarian.
