We believe that God has given us a special call to help those of us who have been rejected and disenfranchised by the Christian Church. This is especially true of those coming from the LGBT community. We believe that the LGBT people have a unique and high calling from God and who have been given special creative gifts from God. Those gifts and dreams may have been crushed by the religious system, but our mission is to help you find your destiny and restore your vision. Religious people may say that you are an abomination. God says you are His creation. He made you gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered for a great purpose and call. While Jesus People Church of Asheville has a specific call to the LGBT community, we are an “inclusive church” where all are welcome.
