Affirming Christian Fellowship (ACF)

Is an association of LGBT affirming evangelical ministries and individuals.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

There is one true God eternally existent in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who seek to live faithfully regardless of ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, race or sexual orientation are full participants in the Body of Christ. We welcome and affirm all into the life of the church.

ACF’s Mission

Is focused on the LGBT community and its allies to:

  • Bring together people with a shared faith to worship, evangelize and disciple.

  • Give people from all different backgrounds an opportunity to be educated about Homosexuality and Christianity.

  • Afford ministry and growth opportunities to people in the LGBT community.

  • Hold an annual conference open to all that is designed for networking, fellowship, education and worship.

  • Offer a safe place for LGBT people and the evangelical church community to dialogue.

  • Be a voice in the public and media that supports the LGBT community and its struggles for equality, and to speak out against negative stereotype.

This mission is accomplished through an affiliation of churches, ministries and individuals working together.
