There is a distinction between one who would identify him/herself as a homosexual, as opposed to one who practices homosexuality. God loves the sinner, but He hates the sinful activity. Leviticus 18:22, Rom. 1:18-32, ICor. 6:9-11, 17, ITim. 1:9-11. Therefore, any person who comes from this sexual background is welcome in the church, so long as he/she chooses to not engage in this practice, and actively seeks a changed life by the power of the risen Lord. He/she cannot be a member until they can declare victory over this sin by his/her reliance on the Lord Jesus Christ, being cleansed by His shed blood, and the miracle working, enabling power of the Holy Spirit.
