Assemblies of God Pastor Announces His Church Is Now “Fully Inclusive” of LGBTQ, Including Serving as Pastors

The Assemblies of God (AOG) is a charismatic denomination that historically is very socially conservative and has largely stood against the influx of homosexual invasion in the Church. However, in recent years, the denomination has taken unprecedented turns towards the inclusivity of homosexuals. Hillsong, which began as an Assemblies of God church — and has now become its own denomination — has largely turned a blind eye toward homosexual sin.

Now, another AOG church has announced that it will fully embrace homosexuality, including letting them serve on staff as pastors.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

Dan Matlock, lead pastor of Eikon Church in Kyle Texas made this astonishing announcement on Sunday, February 9 to his congregation during the Sunday morning sermon.

After saying how he went to the elder board to clarify their orthopraxy on LGBTQ issues, he told the audience “we need to decide, we’ve not been clear … we need to wrestle with 1.) what we believe about this, and 2.) how we’re going to structure and shape our church in its practices.”

Will Eikon Church become a fully inclusive church for the LGBTQ community? … And what we mean by this … people from the LGBTQ community are welcome, period. Not welcome with an asterisk. Not welcome in some places. Not welcome to change. That means they can serve in any and every capacity in the church from a greeter in the parking lot to a pastor on staff.

A representative from the Assemblies of God reached out to Reformation Charlotte with the following official statement from their Executive Leadership Team:

As many of you are aware, a certified minister at an AG church in Texas on Sunday announced a departure from the official Assemblies of God position on human sexuality. The Assemblies of God has a well-established process to deal with such departures. Immediately upon first knowledge, the North Texas District initiated appropriate action required in dealing with both the minister and the church.  When it comes to matters of marriage, sexual orientation, and gender identity, the Bible is clear. That is why the only acceptable position for Assemblies of God ministers and churches is clearly outlined in this statement: https://ag.org/Beliefs/Position-Papers/Homosexuality-Marriage-and-Sexual-Identity
