Marriage, Sexuality and Gender

We believe that God wants our relationships and sexuality to reflect

his nature and holiness. He wants the best for us, and following his

ways brings glory to his name and leads to the most fulfilling

experience in this life and the next. [Jeremiah 29:11-13, Romans 8:28]

Therefore, the most genuine expression of love is to encourage and to

humbly walk with one another, helping each other embrace God’s

grace and his best for us as conveyed in the Bible.

[Hebrews 3:13, 10:24]


We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in

a covenant of commitment for a lifetime. [Genesis 2:20-25, Matthew

19:5-6] The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since

both are created in God’s image. [Genesis 1:27] The husband and wife

mutually submit to one another in a way that expresses to the world

how much Jesus loves his Church and how much his Church loves him

back. [Ephesians 5:21-33, Colossians 3:18-19]


We believe that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage

relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is

outside the scope of what God says is right and best for us. [Genesis

2:24-25; Exodus 20:14, 17, 22:19; Leviticus 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16;

Matthew 19:4-6, 9; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; 1

Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 7]


We believe that God created humankind in his own image as male

and female and that all conduct to adopt a sex or gender other than

what is in accordance with one’s birth sex is outside of what God has

expressed is right and good for us. [Genesis 1:27; Deuteronomy 22:5]
