STATEMENT OF FAITH
MARRIAGE, GENDER, & SEXUALITY


We Believe...
God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. Rejection of one's biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person. Genesis 1:26-27
God designed marriage as the permanent, exclusive, comprehensive, and conjugal "one flesh" union of one man and one woman, intrinsically ordered to procreation and biological family, and in furtherance of the moral, spiritual, and public good of binding father, mother, and child. Matthew 19:4-6, Ephesians 5:31-33
The term "marriage" has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as designed in Scripture. Genesis 2:18-24
God designed sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. 1 Corinthians 6:18, Hebrews 13:4, Romans 1:26-27
Sexual immorality is sinful, and includes but is not limited to: adultery, fornication, incest, bestiality, pornography, prostitution, voyeurism, pedophilia, exhibitionism, sodomy, polygamy, homosexual behavior. Exodus 20:14, Leviticus 18:6-18, Matthew 5:27-29, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
