Open and Affirming



Open and Affirming

Churches such as ours that are "Open and Affirming" (ONA) have publicly declared that those of all sexual orientations, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, are welcome in the full life and ministry (e.g., membership, leadership, and employment) of the church. The term promises a spirit of hospitality and a willingness to live out that welcome in meaningful ways. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here!
