THE AALC POSITION ON HOMOSEXUALITY

The AALC regards homosexual desires and behavior as sinful and contrary to God's intent for His children. It rejects the contention that homosexual desires, behavior and/or lifestyle are simply another form of sexuality equally valid with the God-given male-female pattern. We urge Pastors and Congregations to initiate Scriptural teaching in appropriate situations so as to counter the growing social/cultural approval of homosexual attitudes and mind-set.

At the same time, since it is sin (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:18-32), we approach this sin as other sins. That is, we preach and teach Law (showing the sin and consequences leading to repentance) and Gospel (forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ); however, the Gospel is not a license to continue in sin (Galatians 5:13).
