What We Believe

  • In one God: revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.
  • Forgiveness comes through faith in Jesus Christ, and the power to overcome our character defects comes through the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives and our cooperation with that work.
  • The Bible teaches that any sexual practice outside an exclusive male/female marriage is contrary to God’s will.
  • That same-sex attractions are often a subconscious response to unmet nurturing needs from childhood that are later sexualized in puberty and adulthood.
  • That growth out of sexual addictions, gender confusion or homosexuality is possible for all who are truly committed to Christ and his will.
  • In the church (when it is biblically expressed) as God’s primary agent of grace and freedom for the sexually and relationally broken person.
  • The body of Christ must speak openly about the brokenness in its own ranks and provide a safe place for healing.
  • The body of Christ must be a “sex positive” atmosphere that actively promotes the goodness and pleasures of sex within marriage. We believe it must remove any unnecessary shame or embarrassment about sex carried by married couples or abstinent singles looking forward to marriage.
