Inclusion at Artisan Church

We believe that all people are born with the essential dignity and intrinsic value that comes from being made in God’s image and are equally capable of receiving the gifts and exhibiting the fruit of the Holy Spirit. We acknowledge and lament that institutional barriers can exclude some who come to church seeking love, grace, and growth in Christ.

At Artisan Church, we welcome LGBTQ persons to participate at all levels of church life: partaking of the sacraments, serving in ministry, joining in membership, and holding leadership and staff roles. Pastoral care is fully inclusive and available to all, including but not limited to: spiritual counsel, prayer, baptism, weddings, funerals, and visitation during illness.
