LGBTQ Policy

Unclear: Non-Affirming

Reference Links

Celebration College Student Handbook: "We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God."



Sub30 Message from 2014: A message from the church's young adult ministry is focused on "same sex attraction" and suggests non-affirming policies.

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not listed on the website’s primary pages, but the application for premarital classes contains language that hints at non-affirming policies. Additionally, the Student Handbook for the church's college contains clear non-affirming LGBT policies. And a video from 2014 suggests non-affirmation.
