A Ministry Offering Hope to Individuals, Families, and Churches Impacted by Same-Sex Attraction & Gender Dysphoria
Do you experience unwanted same-sex attraction?
At Alive in Christ, we’ve worked with many Christian men and women who have experienced what you are feeling. Many have prayed for years that God would change them and take away their struggles, only to wake each day with the same temptations and desires.
You are not alone.
God does care about your struggle with same-sex attraction, and He deeply desires to see you walk in the freedom that Jesus died to bring.
At Alive in Christ, we believe healing happens in the context of community. Learning to walk in freedom isn’t something we can do alone. In James 5:16, it says “Confess your sins to one another (notice it doesn’t say “to God alone”) and pray for one another so that you may be healed.” Nowhere in the Bible are we called to confess our sins to God in private, thinking He’ll take care of the rest.
Perhaps God does not answer our solitary prayers because He wants our weaknesses to drive us to the church He established. This is why Alive in Christ offers two discipleship support groups for Christian men and women who experience same-sex attraction. A weekly group meets in Boston, and a monthly group meets in East Taunton. Please contact us for more details.
We also have gathered some resources below that we hope will be helpful to you.
