Sexual Ethics:

  • Consensual Sex: Sexual relations are not forbidden, as they are seen as a natural part of human life. However, all sexual relations must be consensual and based on mutual respect and love. We emphasize the importance of communication and consent in all sexual relationships.

  • Chastity and Marriage: While consensual sex is allowed, individuals are encouraged to remain chaste outside of marriage. Sexual activity should be within the bounds of a loving, committed relationship. We uphold the sacredness of marriage vows and the commitment they represent.

  • Avoiding Exploitation: It is forbidden to take advantage of someone who is vulnerable or unable to provide informed consent. Exploitation in any form is condemned. We recognize the inherent vulnerability of certain individuals, and we are committed to protecting their rights and dignity.

  • Sexual Education: We believe in comprehensive sexual education that promotes informed decision-making, consent, and healthy relationships. Knowledge empowers individuals to make choices that align with their values and well-being.

  • Respect for Diversity: We respect and honor diverse expressions of human sexuality. We do not discriminate against individuals based on their sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other aspect of their sexuality.

  • Support for Victims: We provide support and resources for individuals who have experienced sexual abuse, assault, or harassment. Our faith community is a safe space for survivors to seek healing and justice.

  • Marital Counseling: We offer marital counseling and support to help couples maintain healthy, loving relationships. We recognize that every marriage faces challenges, and we are committed to helping couples overcome them.

  • Responsible Parenthood: We encourage responsible parenthood and family planning, supporting individuals and couples in making informed decisions about their family size and timing of children.

  • Sexual Health: We promote sexual health and well-being, including regular medical check-ups and access to reproductive healthcare. Sexual health is an integral part of overall well-being.

  • Consent Education: We actively engage in consent education, emphasizing that consent is an ongoing, enthusiastic agreement between all parties involved in a sexual encounter. Consent cannot be coerced or assumed.

  • Community Accountability: We hold individuals accountable for their actions and behaviors related to sexual ethics. This includes addressing any instances of misconduct, harassment, or abuse within the faith community in a fair and just manner.
