What we believe

 

 

Human Sexuality

We believe that legitimate sexual relations are exercised solely within marriage. Hence, sexual relations outside of marriage (referred to in the new testament as “porneia” – πορνεiα) including but not limited to, adultery, premarital sex, homosexuality, and pedophilia are inconsistent with the teachings of the bible and the church. Further, lascivious conduct, transgender behavior, and the creation, distribution or viewing of pornography, are incompatible with the biblical witness (Exodus 20:14; Leviticus 18:7-23; 20:10-21; Deuteronomy 5:18; Matthew 5:27-28; 15:19; Romans 1:26-31; I Corinthians 6:9-13; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 4:17-19; Colossians 3:5; I Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews 13:4).
