What is the Pentecostal Movment's Position on Homosexuality?


Question: What is the Pentecostal Movment's Position on Homosexuality?
Many denominations have differing views on homosexuality. The Pentecostal Movement has its own views. What is the position of the Pentecostal Movement about homosexuality?

Most churches in the Pentecostal Movement view homosexuality as a sin. They tend to oppose same-sex marriages, and they do not allow homosexual pastors. Some pentecostal churches also deny membership to homosexuals. They take the perspective that the homosexual can be delivered from their homosexuality.

As the largest Pentecostal denomination in the U.S., the Assemblies of God also adhere to the belief that homosexuality is a sin, and that it goes against scripture and the God's created order for human relationships. They believe that homosexuals will not inherent the Kingdom of God, but that homosexuals can be reconciled to God. AG churches encourage members to minister to homosexuals.
