We are a ministry for the encouragement and nurture of LGBTQ+ persons in Christian life and community. We are equally a ministry of persons offered to the Church and to the world seeking unity and peace in the Body of Christ, justice and dignity for all persons, regardless of their likeness to or difference from ourselves, the end to human oppression, especially the oppression of people because of sexual orientation, and the building of a world and a society which are each safer places in which to love. We proclaim the good news that the world and all people in it have been redeemed by Jesus Christ.
We, the members of Integrity Tallahassee, believe that LGBTQ+ people can express their sexuality in a manner that is consistent with Christ's teaching. We believe that all sexuality should be exercised in an ethically responsible and unselfish way. As members of Integrity Tallahassee, we wish to promote the cause of the LGBTQ+ community. To do this, we must accept our responsibility to the Church, to society, and to the individual needs of the LGBTQ+ people in our community.
Integrity Tallahassee is organized to unite LGBTQ+ Christians and Allies in the Tallahassee area, to act as a support group for LGBTQ+ people, to develop leadership, and to be an instrument through which LGBTQ+ Christians may be heard by the Church and society. We commit ourselves to welcoming and encouraging all people of various religious backgrounds and traditions into full chapter membership.
We shall strive to achieve Christian maturity through all means at our disposal, especially through personal and corporate prayer, active love of neighbor and full participation in the sacramental life of the Church.
We shall strive to inform ourselves in all matters of faith, especially those that concern the LGBTQ+ community, so that we may develop the maturity of outlook needed to live fulfilling lives in which sexuality and spirituality are integrated and to prepare us for service.
As Christian members of society, we shall become involved in those actions that bring the love of Christ to others and provide the basis for reform.
Activities of a social and recreational nature will be provided to promote an atmosphere where friendship can develop and mature, and where a sense of acceptance and wholeness may be experienced, strengthened and nurtured.
