LGBTQ Policy

Unclear: Non-Affirming

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not located in the website’s primary pages, but embedded in a sermon from 2014. The website does state the church's Baptist denomination but it does not link to it. The church is a Member of the Southern Baptist Convention.

The website does link to the church's affiliation with the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, but not directly to its policy human sexuality. The Acts 29 Network supports only a traditional view of marriage, where "God has given to the man primary responsibility to lead his wife and family." Acts 29 also hosted a 2016 conference in North Carolina titled (un)Reachable, about how churches can transform homosexuals.
