What we believe

cross on vicars robesWe believe that:

  • there is integrity in being both Christian and gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered
  • lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people are called by God to express their sexuality in loving, faithful and committed relationships
  • same-sex orientation is a God-given reality for a large minority of people, not a sin or a sickness
  • as the positive contribution of the gay community towards society becomes clearer, the church’s mission to this expanding group becomes urgent
  • our lives offer evidence of the fruits of the Spirit
  • our present experience requires a re-evaluation of scripture and tradition
  • to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered is not limited to sexual activity or sexual identity but encompasses every dimension of life
  • prejudice against gay people in the church is as unacceptable as racism or prejudice against women
  • the church should stop colluding with cultural repression and discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in all parts of the world.
