Notes

First Presbyterian Church's actively enforced policy is not located on its website's primary pages, but in peripheral documents, which state "First Presbyterian defines marriage as . . . between a man and a woman," and that "a person who is living a sexual ethic outside . . . of marriage between a man and a woman is not eligible for ordained leadership."

Its actively enforced policy is also located in the website of its denomination, Evangelical Covenant of Presbyterians, which is non-affirming in policy.
