Pastor Rob Buckingham of Bayside Church, a large Pentecostal megachurch in Melbourne, Australia, recently revealed a new “inclusion statement” the church now adheres to that accepts homosexuals into the congregation. The statement reads:

At Bayside Church, we believe that every person is created in God’s image. All are equally worthy of respect, dignity, and love, regardless of gender, sexuality, age, ability, race, or ethnicity.

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.

Everyone is invited, welcomed, and supported to grow in their relationship with God and each other. Everyone is encouraged to use their gifts and abilities to serve God and others.

At Bayside Church, we are committed to creating a safe space for all – we do this through clear policies and pathways so that everyone can feel safe and nurtured.

At Bayside Church, we courageously love and empower people to become like Jesus.

Who is Rob Buckingham? According to Andrew Strom, Buckingham and Bayside Church have not been considered a “liberal” or “progressive” congregation but Buckingham authored a blog post titled Is God Anti-Gay? questioning the Christian approach to homosexuality.

Rob Buckingham is a friend of Brian Houston, founder, and CEO of Hillsong, Australia, who, according to reports, was committed to discussions with Buckingham over issues of sexual orientation.

Apparently, Bayside Church has been gay-affirming for a long time. According to another report, in an interview, Buckingham said that this statement was nothing more than the culmination of the direction of the church over the last decade. He also said the church network they are affiliated with does not allow gay weddings.
