Who We Are: We are Jesus’ People who want revolution for GLBTQ and Straight people, who seek to be free from religion and full of God.
Mission: We reach out to GLBTQ and Straight people, who have been marginalized by religion, society or other systems, and provide a safe, healthy environment where they can explore the real Jesus and know God as God really are, discovering and living out their highest destiny.
Who is Jesus? He is often presented to people in a discriminating way rather than the message of grace, love and acceptance, no matter who a person is or what that person does or has done. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He lived an exemplary life on earth and that He offers the gift of abundant life now and eternal life afterwards to whoever believes.
The Bible is often misrepresented or misquoted, taken out of context to promote a discriminating “gospel’ based on political, religious or societal agendas that are not historically or contextually accurate. We believe that it is the true, life-giving word of God, when interpreted in its accurate cultural, linguistic and historical context.
The Truth: We want people to understand who they really are in light of the message of Grace and the accurate retelling of the scriptures, often used to ‘bash’ people, and to know that everyone is offered grace and the gift of life no matter who they are.
