This church is part of the Transformation Network, which states in its bylaws:

Christian marriage is a loving, exclusive, and covenantal union between one man (born male) and one woman (born female) for life (Genesis 2.23-24 and Matthew 19.4-6.)  This union is the only appropriate context for sexual intimacy and all sexual activity outside of this union is sinful (Hebrews 13.4.)  We believe Christian marriage is a reflection of the union between Jesus and His Church (Ephesians 5.25-33.)....All Local TNI Churches agree to operate according to these By Laws.  These By Laws supersede the By Laws of the Local TNI Church at any point of disagreement.
