Divine Institutions

We believe the institutions of personal responsibility (Gen 2:17), marriage between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:20-25, Matthew 19:1-6, Mark 10:6-9), family (Genesis 2:24), human government (Genesis 9:6, Romans 13:1-4), and national diversity (Exodus 1:5, Deuteronomy 32:8, Acts 17:26) are established by God, defined by God, and limited by God in Scripture, and shall not be transgressed or altered by man. Thus we do not believe that same sex unions, along with any other sin identified in the Bible, can be sanctioned by a Christian organization.
