Notes

This church's actively enforced policy is not found on its website's primary pages, but is implied in two sermons dated 12/3/14 and 9/18/16. In the sermon "Biblical Sexuality," at 8:39, the pastor says "God intended sex to be an expression of marital love and intimacy between one man and one woman" (emphasis added). In the sermon "God's Good Design in Gender," at 19:10, he says gender "is determined by the way God has physically made my body," and consistently misgenders Laverne Cox beginning at 7:25.

Additionally, this church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, which is not affirming.

Because this church's policies are not clearly stated on the main pages of its website, but are buried in its denomination's policies and in recorded sermons, its score is Unclear: Non-Affirming.
