Mission and Vision
The Reformation Project is a Bible-based, Christian grassroots organization that works to promote inclusion of LGBTQ people by reforming church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity. Our vision is of a global church that fully affirms LGBTQ people.
We adhere to the old adage "nothing about us without us" and are committed to achieving collective empowerment in a way that values relationships and is shaped by the leadership of those we represent. We work to build our influence and impact by cultivating emerging leaders, connecting them to our greater network, and equipping them with the knowledge and hard skills that have been historically proven effective in grassroots efforts for justice.
We are committed to demonstrating how Christians can both fully affirm the authority of the Bible and fully affirm LGBTQ people in the life of the church. Educating and training Christians on the biblical case for LGBTQ inclusion is central to our work.
In order to achieve our vision of a global church that fully affirms all LGBTQ people, we work to center voices that have been marginalized in our own community: queer people of color, transgender people, women, and others whom experience compounding forms of oppression.
