LGBTQ Policy

Unclear: Non-Affirming

The church's policy is not clearly disclosed on its website, but in a difficult-to-find 2015 discussion series called Four Letters on Gender and Sexuality. In the Second Letter: "I Speak of Christ and the Church," the pastor writes, "Throughout the Bible, marriage between a man and a women and the sexual union within that marriage are a unique, powerful positive sign of the relationship between God and humanity. Moreover, other expressions of sexual union or marriage beyond this are not a part of God’s original intent for humanity."

In the "Fourth Letter: 'It Seems Right to the Holy Spirit and to Us," the pastor writes that LGBTQ+ people are welcome to be members but that members in committed same-sex relationships are not eligible for selection as elders in the church.
