Statement from Texas Baptists regarding CBF Governing Board’s adoption of Illumination Project report

DALLAS–In light of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Governing Board’s vote to approve the recommendations of the Illumination Project, Texas Baptists reaffirms its long-held position on Biblical sexuality and marriage. While we understand the decision-making process undertaken, our position remains unchanged. We believe the Bible teaches that any sexual relationship outside the bounds of a marriage between a man and woman is sin.

Texas Baptists values every human individual, and our churches continue to be loving, respectful and welcoming to all people.
