Forum: Sex, Gender, and Marriage

The Bible boldly declares that sex, gender, and marriage are beautifully designed by God for His glory and our good. As followers of Jesus, our beliefs about sexuality are uniquely framed by the story of a loving God restoring His broken creation. How then does a biblical vision for human sexuality play out in a pluralistic society? In this special forum, Pastors Jeremy Treat and Tim Chaddick explain what the Bible says about sex, gender, and marriage, and how to faithfully follow Jesus in a culture filled with conflicting views on these topics.
