Clarity on women in ministry and LGBTQ beliefs are important for churches. Everyone deserves to know, from the beginning, whether a church is right for them.
RHBC is not an affirming church. While we disavow any acts of hatred, those with different gender expressions or in a same-sex relationship will not be able to be full participants.
RHBC has ordained women into deacon position since the 1980s, and we fully affirm the equality of women in pastoral positions and the pulpit.
