"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

1st John 3:1-3
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 3And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

We live and are sharing the Gospel inside a culture where gender lines are being explored and rights are being demanded. How the church responds in this hour is critical for how we engage the world as the church. How do we live in the tension between love and purity? Doesn't the Bible have a lot to say about our gender being sacred? Where is Jesus in this conversation? Are we a place where people can feel at home while cross-dressing? If we don't understand intersex, how can we understand gender dysphoria? There is a lot to comprehend, and there is a lot that psychologists and theologians just don't know. Join us as we look to the Gospel and to the standards set by Christ for holiness and belonging.
