LGBTQ Policy

Unclear: Affirming

Welcome

Weddings

"Practicing Baptism" (Sermon, January 14, 2018)

Excerpt: "We can remember that we are who God says we are, regardless of our gender identity, our sexual orientation..."

Reference Links

Notes

Its actively enforced policy on its main page, and its wedding policy, only communicates affirmation of sexual orientation but not gender identity.

There is language affirming gender identity in some peripheral pages, such as this sermon from 2018, but because this policy is not clearly stated, its score is Unclear: Affirming.

LGBTQIA in Leadership

The Minister to Youth is a gay man.

Women in Leadership Policy

Unclear: Egalitarian

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not clearly communicated on its website's primary pages, and its current leadership personnel does not reflect its egalitarian policy. The pastor titles that women hold are not distinguishable from those that women hold in non-egalitarian churches.
