Sermon by Britt Olson, January 2016

Exceprt:"Amazing things are possible when faithful Christians who know themselves to be part of the Body of Christ contribute towards the building up of the body.  It takes incredible commitment to believe that we are ALL called into this body; that we cannot say to anyone “you do not belong,” or, “we have no need of you.”  It takes the transforming power of love to recognize that all people, Jews or Greeks, slaves or free, women or men, gay or straight, rich or poor, housed or homeless, of every race and nation and background are made one in Christ."

Notes

Its actively enforced policy regarding sexual orientation is vaguely communicated on website's primary pages and only clearly communicated in a sermon dated January 24, 2016. Its actively enforced policy only communicates affirmation of sexual orientation but not gender identity.
