Sermon (The "T" in LGBT). Listen from 30min onwards:

"We are being inundated in our culture that all the differentiations that the Creator intended, and we are encouraged to be thinking that there is no difference at all between male and female. That’s not the design of the Creator… it’s an expression of sin and rebellion. 'I don’t want anyone especially a Christian or God to tell me who I am and who I’m not. I decide my identity. I decide who I have to sex with. I decide who I want to be. Its my freedom to do that.' We tend to think its loving to simply say, 'We agree with that.' How is that loving? How is that loving to encourage someone to continue in the disconnection between themselves and their Creator? It might garner opposition, but are we not expected to receive opposition for that?"

Sermon: "Sex." (May, 2018) Beginning around 20:30, the pastor speaks of marriage as between "a man and a woman"/"a bride and a groom."

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not located in website's primary pages, but sermosn in its archives indicate a non-affirming policy.
