All Saints Episcopal Church
2904 NW 3rd St., Bentonville, AR 72712
Lead by Senior Warden, Debby Nye, All Saints believes in the Episcopalian Church’s legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being. Women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in the church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels; leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
Operated by the GALIP Foundation, GayChurch.Org provides a listing of LGBTQ affirming Christian churches. All listings are required to be Chrisitan, but are not required to follow any specific creed, and must define “affirming” as churches do not view homosexuality in and of itself as a sin, welcoming of LGBTQ people in leadership roles, and embrace same-gender marriage. The site administrators work hard to update listings and ensure these principles are met.
