God’s design for marriage is for one man to be married to one woman for one lifetime. God gives reluctant permission for divorce and subsequent remarriage for innocent party in the case of unrepentant sexual sin or abandonment by an unbelieving spouse.
Genesis 1:27-28 Malachi 2:14-16 Ephesians 5:22-23
Genesis 2:18-24 Matthew 19:3-9 Colossians 3:19
Proverbs 18:22 I Corinthians 7:10-16 Hebrews 13:4
God has commanded that no sexual activity be engaged in outside marriage between a man and a woman. Any form of homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery, and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. Attempting to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance violates God’s Word.

Such persons should be received with love and compassion. Such persons should also be exposed the truth of the Holy Bible regarding sinful practices. A practice is “sinful” when in is contrary to the nature and character of God revealed in the teachings of the text of the Holy Bible. In addition to not being eligible for membership without first turning from sin, such persons may not participate in any leadership or elevated role without first turning from sin.
