LGBTQ Policy

Unclear: Affirming

Web Links

Denomination:

Southern Baptist Convention. See, however, this page: "It was more important to be Baptist than to be Southern Baptist," implying that the church may no longer be Southern Baptist.

Cooperative Baptist Fellowship

Daily Lesson, January 2015: "It means loving and accepting my . . . sexual orientation."

Reference Links

The church's then-pastor spoke to a local PFLAG group in 2011.

Notes

This church's denomination is not found in its website; however, it is found in the databases of the Southern Baptist Convention (a non-affirming denomination) and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (a denomination that permits affirming churches). Some peripheral "Daily Lessons," such as this one, imply an affirming policy. However, the church's actively enforced policies are not clearly stated on the main pages of its website. Thus, this church's score is Unclear: Affirming.
