Statements on Gender and Sexuality

God has created only two genders – male and female. Made in his image, males and females are equal in value and purpose.

God has given the man responsibility to be the head of his wife and family. This is not a place of abusive authority, but of sacrificial service and love. A man is called by God to encourage a culture of following Jesus as a family.

God created marriage to be between one man and one woman. Sexual intimacy is to be expressed exclusively in the context of this marriage relationship.
