LGBTQ Policy

Clear: Non-Affirming

Our Beliefs

From the section Sexual Purity and Marriage:

"We further believe that God has commanded that intimate sexual activity be confined to the context of a marriage relationship. Thus, we believe that any form of sexual immorality, such as adultery, pre-marital sex, homosexuality, lesbianism, bi-sexual conduct, incest, polygamy, pornography, bestiality, or any attempt to change one’s biological sex by surgery or appearance, is sin."

Women in Leadership Policy

Unclear: Egalitarian

Web Links

Our Beliefs

From the section Gender Roles:

"We believe that all of our members, whether male or female, should exercise their God-given spiritual gifts to their fullest potential. The various lists of spiritual gifts found in the New Testament do not delineate gifting according to gender. Thus, if a woman has the gift of leading, teaching or pastoring, we would encourage her to utilize that gift to further God’s Kingdom."

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is communicated on its website's primary pages, but its current leadership team does not reflect its egalitarian policy (not 50% women).
