Our Ethos - We affirm that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and transgender Christians are not spiritually compromised in any way. We reject the view that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual and transgender Christians are defiled, perverted, sick, second-class or sub-standard.
We affirm that GLBT Christians fill an important role witnessing the transforming power of the gospel in the gay community. As Paul wrote in Romans 1:16,17a:
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. - KJV
GLBT Christians exercise spiritual gifts and abilities from God which are sorely needed in the body of Christ. These include the normal gifts of the Spirit which equip believers for service, I Corinthians 12, as well as Christian charity, love in action, as described in I Corinthians 13.
We affirm God’s amazing grace, that our sovereign LORD is at work in the GLBT community, saving the lost, transforming hearts and minds, conforming us to the image of Christ. As vibrant grace-filled GLBT Christians, the Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, Romans 8:16.
We affirm a special empathy and love for our GLBT brothers and sisters. Our hearts desire and prayer to God is that they might be saved and know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, Romans 10:1, Ephesians 3:19.
We affirm our biblical and strongly held belief that as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Christians grow in grace and knowledge, our lives will not be characterized by sin but will reflect the holiness and power of God. As Bible believing gay Christians we live by faith, because Whatsoever is not of faith, is sin, Romans 14:23b.
Born again gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals and transgendered people, with our distinctively Christian beliefs, are uniquely empowered at this time in God's redemptive plan, to bring the light of the glorious gospel of Christ to the secular gay community, witnessing Jesus’ powerful message of salvation and hope for every GLBT. We invite you to trust the real historical Jesus of the Bible as Lord of your life and Savior from sin. Let the adventure begin.
