"This means the only appropriate context for sexual activity is a publicly declared, legally binding marriage between one man and one woman. Sexual activity outside of marriage, premarital or extra-marital, homosexual or heterosexual, is sinful in that it rejects God’s plan." (Page 11)

The church partners with a counseling organization, CIFT which has groups for "Men's Sexual Addiction" that focus on "issues of homosexuality".
