Alive in Christ is an inter-denominational, Christ-centered ministry helping Christian men and women find freedom in their struggle with same-sex attraction. We minister to individuals through support groups and equip churches through speakers and training sessions.
“I used to heavily identify myself as dirty and unworthy of God’s grace because of my sin, but being able to share with this group has helped me to recognize the redemptive qualities of my God. It’s one thing to have accountability at my church and with sisters, but it is another thing to experience it with others that struggle the same way you do.”
Links to articles to encourage us to view same-sex attraction through a Christian lens. Some articles express views not entirely in agreement with those of Alive in Christ, but are included to spur your thinking.

- Homosexuality: Some Misunderstandings of the Biblical
Teaching, Gordon Hugenberger, Park
Street Church, March 8, 1998
Hugenberger preached this sermon early in his tenure as senior minister of Park Street Church, Boston. It capped off a four-part series on Luke 4:1-13, the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness. Hugenberger preached one sermon on each of the three temptations and then in the fourth sermon pulls in Hebrews 4:15 and explains how Jesus was “tempted in every way...yet without sin.” To do so, he breaks down the temptation of homosexuality and shows how it relates to the temptations Jesus faced. He reminds us that we more in common than not in the ways we are tempted. (Posted 2018/07/18)
