Letter to a Gay Man

"We are a Bible church, and as the scriptures would never affirm a gay relationship as good and acceptable to God, neither would we." 

- Pastor Andy McQuitty (2005)

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not in website's primary pages, but the church's pre-marriage page suggests a non-affirming policy. 

A published letter from 2005 by the pastor shows the pastor's non-affirming stance on homosexual relationships.
