Welcome to Accepting Evangelicals
The AE Blog this week is a reflection from our new Patron, Bishop David Gillett, after attending an event by Changing Attitude. Here is a snippet…
“I did not leave the day despondent about the place of LGBT folk within evangelical churches. It is still clearly very hard for many, but the tide is turning and I am confident that the facilitated discussions which are being set up… will be one means through which many evangelicals will re-evaluate their position!”
We are an open network of Evangelical Christians…
who believe the time has come to move towards the acceptance of faithful, loving same-sex partnerships at every level of church life, and the development of a positive Christian ethic for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Accepting Evangelicals is for everyone who would call themselves Evangelical.
people who believe that loving, faithful same-sex relationships built on mutual commitment and self-giving love are not condemned in the Bible
people who are willing to accept the Christian integrity of those who affirm same-sex relationships, although they do not personally hold this view.
We welcome people from all Christian Churches, Fellowships & Denominations.
We offer both:
Open Membership to those who are happy to be publicly associated with Accepting Evangelicals. Their names will appear on our website in due course.
Confidential Membership to those who are concerned that their public support would put them at risk of prejudice or discrimination. Their names will remain confidential and will not appear on our website.
Membership details, both open and confidential, will not be passed onto third parties unless we have your express permission.
