Homosexuality And Baptist Churches
Describing the Baptist view on homosexuality is difficult due to the multitude of Baptist organizations, each with a slightly different doctrinal statement. The issue is further compounded by the large number of autonomous Independent Baptist churches which are not part of an organization and have their own doctrinal statements and beliefs.
This article will attempt to cover basic beliefs on both sides of the issue.
Famous quotes containing the words baptist and/or churches:

“What after all are these churches now if they are not the tombs and sepulchers of God?”
