"Relating to the gay community" (Sermon by Thor Colberg, March 2017) . Listen starting at 5:30.

Excerpt:

"We're founded on a very, very high view of scripture. We want to be biblically orthodox that's one of our chief values. And our understanding of scripture is that a local Vineyard church may not perform a marriage between two people of the same sex and may not ordain someone to pastoral ministry who is having sex outside of a heterosexual marriage. So that's the position of the global church family and of course that's our position as a Vineyard church in Vineyard North Charlotte."

Notes

Its actively enforced policy is not in its website, but in its denomination's website and in its sermon archives.
