FAQ

  • What is this organization's statement or view on marriage, sexuality & gender?

    1. According to God’s design and intent, sex difference (male and female) is an intrinsic part of what marriage is. While same-sex marriage is legal in some countries, it does not represent a historical, Christian view of marriage. 2. All sex outside of marriage is sin. 3. The Fall has corrupted God’s original intent for human sexuality in all persons; therefore, all people—straight or non-straight—experience corruption in their sexuality. 4. Simply experiencing attraction to the same sex (or being gay) is not in itself a morally culpable sin. 5. Biological sex is an essential part of human identity. 6. All forms of abuse, slander, dehumanization, or oppression toward fellow humans are an affront against God’s sacred image, which has been stamped upon all people.

  • What does The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender do?

    The Center equips leaders with theologically sound and accessible resources through our conferences, pastoral and academic papers, private theological and pastoral consultation, blogs, videos, podcasts, and webinars.

  • What is the purpose of this content? What will I learn?

    You’ll learn practical ways to love LGBTQ people, what the Bible says about marriage and same-sex relations, how to respond to affirming arguments and how to humanize the discussion, relevant Q&As on sexuality and gender, and the latest scientific research on sexuality and gender.

  • Who is this course for?

    This content is intended for Christians who desire to uphold the Word of God while loving people better. We've found our content is most helpful to those in ministry, small group leaders, parents of LBGTQ kids, LGBTQ Christians, and Christians who desire to better understand our cultural moment.

  • What do I need to run this course?

    If you purchase access to this eCourse, the only thing you'll need is books for each of your small group attendees. The Grace/Truth 1.0 and 2.0 books can be found on The Center for Faith's website (also linked in the eCourse) at Store.CenterforFaith.com

  • What if I have technical questions or need support while going through the Grace/Truth?

    If you have questions about technical support, please email us at support@centerforfaith.com. If you have theological questions, please refer to our Pastoral Papers, which can be downloaded for free at https://www.centerforfaith.com/resources.

  • Where does this organization stand on Christians using terms like "gay" and "LGBTQ"?

    We believe that faithful Christians who experience attraction to the same sex or gender dysphoria can reach different conclusions about which language is most helpful to describe their experience. To understand two different faithful approaches to this question, read our blog dialogue "Gay vs. "Same Sex Attraction" (centerforfaith.com). For additional discussion of concerns about the phrase "gay Christian" (and responses to those concerns), watch "What Does 'Gay Christian' Actually Mean?" We will also be hosting a webinar about these topics on April 25, 2022, called "Should Christians Identify as Gay?"
