Hill Offers Statement on Lee University

Cleveland, TN–In response to recent press accounts concerning Lee University, Dr. Timothy M. Hill, General Overseer and Presiding Bishop of the Church of God (Cleveland TN), issued the following statement:

“For more than a century, the Church of God has taken a strong biblically-based stand on issues impacting the family, sex, and gender identity. The beliefs that Lee University are reaffirming in their recent documents are not new. Those positions have been standard doctrinal polity within the church for well over 100 years.

In an age of political correctness, it is imperative that the church and its institutions stand strong in regards to our core beliefs and teachings. I commend the leadership of Lee University for clearly restating and reaffirming the biblical beliefs that we hold true. While we will continue to show love and respect to everyone, we will not waiver in our belief that the Bible is our standard for living.”
