Rev. Paul M. Turner

LGBTQ+ Ministry

For us there is no question that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning and intersex people — and those who love them — are fully worthy of God’s love and are called to be fully participating members of God’s church.

If you’re looking for a church where your sexual orientation or gender identity/expression — or that of someone you love — won’t get in the way of us supporting you in your relationship with God, you’re in the right place. We are straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer people, praying and working for a world where people are able to be themselves and live their truth in the light of God’s love — and with full equality.

So if you’re looking for a church that walks the talk of inclusion and advocacy, you’re in the right place. We’re passionate about equality year-round, and we’re regular participants in organizations and events in our community, including Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Our church believes in advocating on behalf of each of our members as a spiritual being. We believe that the spiritual growth of each person is intimately tied with their day-to-day life, and we encourage everyone to examine themselves and look for ways of personal improvement.

God loves you and wants you and those you love to be who God made you to be. God wants you and those you love to believe in yourselves and love yourselves. And so do we.

An independent, affirming and progressive church serving metro Atlanta. We are open, positive and inclusive.
