Our biblical position on marriage and sexuality and our relational posture for LGBT+ individuals are equally informed and motivated by the heart of Jesus as expressed in God’s Holy Scriptures.
How we engage people is as critical as what we believe.
We aim for the posture of Jesus Christ: to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind; and like unto it, to love all people with the same love that we daily receive from God (see Matthew 22:37-39).
In our best attempt to honor God’s holiness, we hold to a traditional biblical belief regarding marriage and sexuality. Simultaneously, we generously extend Christ’s love to LGBT+ loved ones without condition.
There is no room for condemnation or mistreatment of people whom Christ loves.
The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 9:21, “I am not free from God’s law but am under Christ’s law.” He continues in verses 22-23, “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings.”
