Value 4: Sexual Purity

God made us men and women as sexual beings and said that all He had made was very good. Within marriage, sex is blessed by God who intends it to be a joy and delight to both partners. Because sexual intercourse is so precious to people and so significant in the sight of God, it is kept for the bond of marriage. This means no sex before marriage and no sex outside marriage.
Jesus also made it clear that sexual purity extends beyond the physical act of sexual intercourse to avoiding lustful thought and behaviour. However the Bible shows that sex sin can be forgiven and God calls the church to keep a balance between God’s justice and His forgiveness.
