We believe God ordained marriage and the family as the foundational institution of human society, and that the only legitimate marriage is a sacred and permanent covenant relationship between one man and one woman, symbolizing the union of Christ and his Church. The husband is the the servant leader in the home and is to love his wife as Christ loves the church, and the wife is to submit herself to Scriptural leadership of her husband as the church submits to the headship of Christ
Scripture References: Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-25
We believe God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity is to be engaged in outside of the marriage of a man and a woman.

We believe God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance.
