Welcoming and Affirming Proposal Passes

At a June 12, 2013 called Ministry Forum, Crescent Hill Baptist Church voted to become a congregation that welcomes and fully affirms lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered individuals.   The vote clarifies that sexual orientation and identity will not be a factor when considering whether or not to extend rights, privileges, and blessings within the church's capacity to bestow.  The passage of this proposal also means that the church will not take into consideration sexual orientation or identity when determining whether or not a person is called to ministry and that the church is willing to bless same-sex unions.
