Positions on Marriage and Gender
OUR POSITION ON MARRIAGE
We believe the institution of marriage predates that of government and is the fundamental building block of all human civilization, and that God’s created order defines the institution as the union of one man and one woman. Therefore, we support and wish to sustain the health of the traditional marriages. At a time when divorce divides many families and a younger generation questions even the relevance of a marital covenant, we support the articulation go why marriage matters.
Front Porch Alliance does not argue against “same-sex marriage.” Rather, we simply advocate for the traditional marriage agreement with the Bible and the secular research that demonstrates it is best for children to have a mother and a father.
In alignment with our long Judeo-Chrstrian Christian tradition, we believe traditional marriage is the Creator’s design for human flourishing, and so we seek to promote its many benefits as experienced throughout history.
OUR POSITION ON GENDER
We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male and female, and that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God.
