Title Description

Anne

How is God with us?

Truly God is with us. No matter the circumstances in the world today, God is with us. What does God want from us? God wants us to open our eyes, to hear the angels in unexpected voices, to go      see the Savior of the world.

     

Blyth

Listening to God

We need to stop and listen to God before we do something rash and step out of His will, hurting ourselves and others in the  process.

 

The Word Became Flesh

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." (John 1:14 NKJV)

 

  Salvation

Salvation's work is simply & irrevocably done by Jesus on the cross. Salvation's grace cannot be earned through 'good' works or by changing ones sexual orientation. It can only be accepted through faith.

  Imagine a Journey

Salvation's journey.

No Longer Condemned

God doesn’t see all of your faults or weaknesses when He sees you; He only sees the finished work of Christ because of your faith in Jesus Christ.

Bruce H.

Historical Perspective

Does it seem like the struggle to end anti-gay bias within the church is taking an inordinate amount of time? If we look at civil rights movements that predate ours

we gain some valuable insight and    realize that the struggle is rarely over in a year or two. It may take generations.

Prophecy: 2005 and Beyond

Prophecy given by Chad Taylor back in 2004 concerning many things we would begin to see unfold in 2005. A portion of the prophecy pertains to the homosexual community.

  Why Revival Still Tarries

Why does revival still tarry?  Because God's people still tarry.

Jesus-God's Word to Mankind

Jesus is God's first Word and last Word to mankind. Jesus came to heal, bless, encourage and bring home. He is calling each of us to follow in His footsteps and become an army of servants. Ministering God's love and grace to all.

How we come to the Father

An excellent summary of the verses concerning salvation and much, much more!

     
       Elaine 2008 Welcoming Church Survey

5,301 churches by the end of 2008, an increase of 495 churches from the previous year. The main line denominations again the led the way however the movement has rapidly become a world wide phenomena.

  2007 Welcoming Church Survey

4,806 churches by the end of 2007, an increase of 576 churches over the past year alone. Growth took place across almost all of the denominations with many of the early forerunners again stepping to the fore.

 

2006 Welcoming Church Survey

Phenomenal grow (again!) across all denominations. Clearly the Holy Spirit is at work and "Rainbow Revival" is breaking out. For all the details - where the growth took place, which denominations are numerically at the forefront of this movement? The report has it all.

 

2005 Welcoming Church Survey

A year marked by growth across almost all the denominations with new denominations being added all the time. How many new churches were added this year? How are these churches spread across the various denominations? It's all here.

 

  Not Simply With Words

1 Thess 1:5 (NIV) "… our gospel came to you not simply with words, but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and with deep conviction.”

 

 

Thirty in Three

In three years time, God has opened up almost as many church doors to the gay and lesbian community as has been opened in the previous thirty years combined. This has occurred during some of the worst anti-gay sentiment we have seen since the inception of the gay Christian movement some thirty some odd years ago.

 

 

Red vs. Blue States and Prophecy

An interesting correlation between prophetic words spoken over the Body of Christ as a whole over the last 10+ years and recent prophecy specifically addressed to the gay community.

 

 

Righteousness and Justice 

Why is the Church is 'missing' it and is growing further away from the heart and soul of God's Word and towards a gospel that preaches intolerance and discrimination? Judgment is coming, but it will start start first with the Church.

 

 

The Scapegoat

We are the sacrificial lamb and the acceptable “scapegoat” that both political parties are willing to serve up to the American public. Thank God that He isn't done yet with us or with this issue just yet!

 

  Whosoever 

For "whosoever" believes in His name shall  be saved!

 

Complete Deliverance

Salvation is a journey. It tells us of something that has occurred, something that is occurring and something that will occur.

 

Which Way Home?

"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

Is Homosexuality a Sin?

Many claim homosexuality is a sin? Are they right? What is sin to God anyway?

 

Celibacy

Several denominations and para-religious groups 'accept' homosexuals if they are "non practicing" (i.e. celibate). Is this      scriptural?

 

The Witness of our Lives

Our lives give testimony to the God we serve.

The Prodigal Son is Coming Home

It's time for the gay community to come home... and the Lord said: "I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them that were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God." 2006 is a time of transition, a time of movement back to our Father's House.

Transition

       

 

We are living in a time of transition. Both individually and corporately as the Church.

  They are Dreaming Dreams...

And it shall come to pass afterward, [that] I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh...     

 

  A New Wave, a New Move

God is preparing our community and the entire Body of Christ for the next 'big thing'. But this move of God will be unlike any other the Church has ever seen - and 'we' (i.e. the homosexual community) are an integral part of God's plan! But this move comes with a warning - we must change...

     

Linda

How Long O Lord?

From biblical times many in the religious community have feared change and have sought to extinguish anything foreign or different.   

     

Pamela

USA Election and God's Portion for our Lives

A prophetic encouragement during our hour of duress. God does see our plight and has not forgotten us. Our lives are the key He is holding to bring change to others. Far from being the scourge of the earth, God has declared us BLESSED.

 

   

Princess    Bethany

Ten Kids

We all may be different and squabble and fight over the silliest things. One believes one thing and another believes something else. But for all of our differences we are one family, and God loves us very much.

     

Richard Davis

Justified Through Christ

Our justification comes through Jesus Christ Himself, everything else, including the interpretation of various 'clobber' passages is secondary.

     

Scott Redmond

Get Over The Rainbow

Separation of Church ... and Homosexuality

 

The Federal Marriage Amendment put forth by Rev. Jerry Falwell attempts to enforce the religious beliefs of one segment society onto the society as a whole. This is in direct conflict with the principle of separation of Church and state which has been the hallmark of our country for over 200 years.

 


 

 

Steve

Views from the Underground

There are ways of embracing risk and passion, of allowing the church to speak in ways that aren't determined by the marketplace. In the end, there is virtually no limit to what might be done with proclamation, and the presence of the Word of God in our midst is license to think freely and creatively about how to bear witness to what we have encountered in Jesus Christ.
