Sex and Contraception

Does NAE promote biblical sex in biblical marriage?  Yes.

Has NAE endorsed contraception for unmarried Christians?  No.

Several sources have mistakenly claimed that the National Association of Evangelicals endorses or promotes the use of contraception by unmarried Christian young adults. No. NAE has never done so. NAE promotes, endorses and teaches the biblical standard of God's gift of sex only within marriage between one man and one woman.

To address abortion among evangelicals, the NAE commissioned research by Gallup and Grey Matter to find out what is happening. Financial assistance for this research, for a staff member and for publication of Theology of Sex came from the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. The National Campaign and the NAE share a goal of reducing the number of abortions in the United States. Under this goal, the NAE has partnered with the National Campaign. The NAE does not agree with every position or goal of the National Campaign.

To learn more about the NAE's promotion of biblical values and work to reduce the high rate of sex and abortions among unmarried evangelicals go to Especially, read and encourage others to read Theology of Sex.
