University Baptist Church in Waco Will Now Perform Same-Sex Weddings

-

Almost every day, it seems like another church succumbs to the LGBTQ/feminist/social justice mafia. They are dropping like flies and what is being unfolded is fascinating to watch. The divide between true and false Christianity is becoming increasingly clear as we see fence-riding churches fall off on one side — the wrong side — and the remnant of God being defined clearly as a very small minority.

The following is a report from Central Texas News:

WACO, TX — Times are changing, along with the community at University Baptist Church in Waco.

With a growing population of LGBTQ members, Lead Pastor Joshua Carney said they wanted to do more to make them feel accepted.

“For us, it’s always about loving the people that are here. As the LGBTQ population at UBC grew, we thought it was responsible for us to ask, ‘how can we love them and in what ways are we willing to do that as a community,'” Carney said.

Carney said this discussion has been going on at their church for several years, but the move to really make the change started four months ago.

UBC has about 500 members who were given the opportunity to share their opinion on the issue. Carney said about 200 of them spoke up either by writing in or meeting with a pastor, which helped the leadership team at the church make its final decision.

The official announcement to perform same-sex weddings came out on Sunday. Carney said some were happy about the decision, while others were sad. He said a few of those people have chosen to find another church.

“We have a really great community of people who have loved each other so well,” Carney said. “There is both pain and joy in the community right now, but we’re going to continue to work hard to foster a space where everybody can be together.”

This isn’t a popular practice among Baptist churches in Waco. First Baptist Church, Meadowbrook Baptist Church, Highland Baptist Church, Columbus Avenue Baptist Church, Christ the King Baptist Church and Grace Temple Baptist Church do not perform same-sex weddings.

Lake Shore Baptist Church does allow same-sex weddings, and it’s done so for the last two years.

“For timing on these things, we look to the Holy Spirit to lead us and we feel like we had entered that season,” Carney said. “It was an important step for us.”
