Vision, Mission & Goals

Our Vision:

Clarity and compassion in the Church on issues of sexuality

To see the Church uphold traditional biblical teaching on sexuality with understanding and compassion, so that Christians who struggle with same-sex attractions gain increasing acceptance, wholeness and maturity in faith within their local church

Our Mission:

Teach the truth in love and support those who struggle with same-sex attractions

To teach and encourage individuals, their families and friends as they deal with issues around same-sex attractions, working in partnership with Christian leaders and local churches to promote a biblical pattern for sexual relationships

Our Goals:

What do we pray that God will accomplish through our work?

  1. Churches and individual Christians will honour the pattern for sexual relationships established in Genesis 2:24 and reinforced throughout the Bible, recognising that any sexual relationship outside of marriage between one man and one woman falls short of God’s plan for His creation
  2. Individual Christians will mature in faith and will experience a growing sense of God’s grace and of their being fully accepted in Christ (Rom 15:7), regardless of any ongoing sexual struggles
  3. Individual Christians and local churches will recognise that true freedom, contentment and wholeness are found by trusting and following Jesus Christ, rather than being defined by the absence of same-sex attractions
  4. Christians who struggle with same-sex attractions will embrace their true identity as being rooted in Christ, rather than in their sexual attractions
  5. Churches, church leaders and youth workers will better understand the development of emotional and sexual feelings and behaviour, and be equipped to compassionately support those who face issues around sexuality
  6. Churches and individual Christians will recognise that being single is as much a gift from God as is being married (1 Corinthians 7:7), and will lovingly support, encourage and value single Christians
  7. Christians who struggle with same-sex attractions will lovingly support one another in their pursuit of godly lives which honour Jesus Christ
  8. Churches will challenge prejudice, recognising that every Christian falls short of God’s glory and that sexual sins are not singled out in the Bible as being worse than other sins such as slander, greed and drunkenness (e.g. 1 Cor 6:9-11)
  9. Individual Christians and local churches will recognise the value and unique gifting of every follower of Jesus Christ (1 Cor 12:7), including those dealing with sexual temptations
