Open and Affirming

At Trinity Presbyterian Church, a  “More Light” congregation, we believe there is a great distinction between being tolerant and being affirming, standing with, and advocating for LGBTQ+ rights. We do not merely tolerate, we fully embrace, create space, and commit ourselves to being a safe place.

We recognize that the Bible has done great harm to the LGBTQ+ community through its literal interpretations and exclusive traditions. We take the Bible seriously, but not literally. We strive to reclaim the radical good news of the gospel through opening ourselves to every person and proclaiming God’s unapologetic love and justice for all.

Whether you are, or are part of a same-gender, transgender, or non-binary relationship, we believe you belong and  your love or marriage is sacred and blessed by God. We celebrate the goodness of all people and loving relationships.

We believe EVERYONE has gifts God uses to make our world a more loving and just place.

We believe you bear the divine image of God and we are more alive, more courageous, more whole, and more the body of Christ with your presence than without it.
