We are a welcoming and affirming church

Franklin Federated is a Welcome and Affirming Church. This means we are a member of the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists and the UCC Coalition for LGBT Concerns.

Our Statement


We welcome all those who come to worship God and declare ourselves to be open to all for participation in the full life and ministry of the church regardless of age, ethnicity, faith background, mental abilities, physical abilities, or sexual orientation & gender identity.

We strive to be affirming of all people as children of God and to provide a safe physical, emotional and spiritual haven.

As a declared Welcoming and Affirming congregation we commit ourselves to work to end ignorance, fear, hatred, prejudice and discrimination against all people.
