In an attempt to alleviate the growing confusion and draw clear biblical precedents, The Nashville Statement was finally conceived on August 25, 2017 by The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: A Coalition for Biblical Sexuality.
Appointed Time Press, LLC has officially adopted and signed The Nashville Statement, which was drafted in Nashville, Tennessee by inter-denominational Evangelical Church leaders.
The Nashville Statement contains 14 articles which set very clear cohesive biblical precedents on where the Church stands regarding marriage, gender, and sex. Since its inception tens of thousands of signatories, laymen and clergy alike, have signed The Nashville Statement. We are only one among many who have adopted this statement within their constitutional by-laws.
The Nashville Statement is a public document which serves to answer your proposed question. It speaks very well for itself in simple terms anyone can comprehend, being free of biblical jargon. However, the writers have included scriptural references at the close of the document should you desire them. You are welcome to read the full statement (and download the document) at the link above. We trust this statement will fully answer any questions the public may have regarding where we stand on these issues as a Christian organization.
