Beliefs

1. We believe the Bible to be the final and only authority in matters concerning sexuality and the wholeness of mankind. We believe the scriptures are self-validating. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God”(II Timothy 3:16), consequently we hold that the totality of Biblical canon reject contemporary theories and philosophies of genetic homosexuality.

2. We believe that real freedom from homosexual addictions only come through Jesus Christ. We fervently believe that Jesus was the perfect embodiment of truth and that knowing Him makes one free (John 14:6, 8:32). We hold that freedom comes, and is maintained, not through religious methodology, but through a life of submission to Christ, accountability at a Bible-practicing church, and walking daily according to the precepts found in the Holy Word.

3. We believe that according to II Corinthians 5:17 that “if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away and behold: all things are become new.” Because the Bible declares newness of life in Christ, we reject the theory that one cannot change ”sexual orientation.” This phrase –humanistic in origin– suggests one’s sinful proclivities are immutable, thereby being in direct conflict with the scriptures (John 3:3, Matthew 16:24).

4. We believe that in order to live a life free from sexual immorality, one must be born again and then ask for the free gift of the Holy Spirit. According to Acts 1:8, He (the Spirit) will empower the receiver to be witnesses unto the Lord Jesus Christ. Freedom is not perfectionism nor is it absolutism in conduct, but an acceptance that disciples of Christ must (1) continually lay aside every weight and the sin that does so easily beset us, (2) repent and confess their sins to God who is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us all unrighteousness and (3) cast down every thought which seeks to exalt itself above the knowledge of Christ.

5. We encourage persons struggling against sexual and gender identity issues to seek professional counseling for the solutions they desire. Such counseling should not be a replacement for repentance but as a supplement to one’s Christian journey to maturity in Christ.  We caution that those providing the counseling, in order to be effective, must base their counseling on Biblical principles. We therefore reject all practices such as yoga, transcendental meditation, spirit-guides and other new-age based techniques that focus on humanistic solutions to the spiritual problem of sin.

6. We believe the Bible speaks clearly to the conditions and consequences of same gender sexual sin without regards to the chronology of society and its ever-changing social mores. The timeless message of the Bible clearly condemns homosexuality in every form, but not without providing the remedy by way of repentance and faith in the work of Christ on the cross. Our response to that glorious work is to conform our lives to the image of Jesus Christ.

7. We affirm the sanctity and worth of every human life, whether homosexual or heterosexual. We believe the agape love of the Father extends to all persons regardless of response.  While all persons are God’s creations, all are not God’s children. Thus, we hold homosexual behavior and expression as outside of the will of the Father for His children.

8. We believe that the church is God’s ordained agency in the earth, commissioned to communicate and demonstrate the love and judgment of God. Therefore, we call upon the church, which is the body of our Lord Jesus, to cease its practice of rejecting homosexuals who come to her for help. We hold that the church should openly preach and teach a redemptive message of deliverance and healing for all persons have experienced the ravages of sexual sin. It should also provide applicable ministries to support and nurture these believers into maturity. Likewise, we urge the church to cease its practice of allowing persons, steadfastly unrepentant of homosexuality, to operate in positions of influence and authority. For the scriptures wisely admonish us that “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump” (I Cor 5:6).

    Thank You for proclaiming the truth, keep doing it no matter what may try and come against you. God Bless You.

  2. Ernest Zenone Sr. says:

    Thank you for your Biblical response to homosexuality! Question: Why are not more black Christian clergy speaking out against the President’s support of gay marriage, etc? Are they simply being ignored by the liberal media or is it because of sinful silence on their part? We need to continue praying for our nation to repent, not only for support of homosexual sin but of all the other sins our nation is supporting now!

    • gcmwatch says:

      Ernest, part of the problem as best we can ascertain is that black preachers are locked into the Democratic political system. And this prevents them from voicing any open criticism of Obama’s rabid homosexual advocacy even against the church. They are afraid that if they break ranks, they will be going against a black man in power. To them thats an “uncle tom” issue because they hate the white gop political leaders.

  3. Laura says:

    I’m just wondering… You’re site is created for homosexuals whom you want to help convert back into heterosexuals, so as to rid them of their sin correct?

    GCMW: No, thats not correct. See the About page.

    For a confused homosexual who could stumble upon this website thinking that they are just trying to do what feels right and natural for them, this site can be very offensive, or feel hateful to them.

    GCMW: We have given every “confused homosexual” looking for the truth, the truth. The truth does offend some, but to those who receive it, it will liberate them. John 8:32

    Almost everyone who has commented with their questions has been extremely polite and not aggressive.
    GCMW: Some have, most have not. We’re not dealing with flesh and blood but spiritual wickedness and that calls for discernment as to the intent behind people’s words. So we respond accordingly.

    The second that you do not agree though, you use extremely loaded language and portray a huge amount of hate and judgement. Whereas with people praising your work, you bless them and welcome them.
    GCMW: Aren’t you judging me and making accusations based solely on your perception? Thats hypocrisy isnt it? What we do is fight lies and praise the truth. Just like Jesus did.

    I do not think this is effective for the people you are trying to reach.
    GCMW: Again,the reason you are confused is because you havent taken time to read or understand our mission which has been clearly stated for almost 7 years.

    @gcm watch…you promised Dr. P on here that you would address the issue of individuals born with ambiguous genitalia ((both sex parts)) and how they fit into the biblical standard of sexual morality. I’ve also brought this subject up on a different thread and am very interested in your response.

  5. David says:

    @gcmwatch…ive read your position and I do mean YOUR position on intersected individuals. First I must say how very paternalistic of you to come up with your own formula for holiness for such people. Suggesting they pick a gender they feel most “comfortable” with and stick with it even going as far to benton surgery as an option is quite intrusive into an individual right to self acceptance and even physical health. who says they feel most comfortable with one gender? Or surgery? Since when has holiness before God required such radical action? God makes a person with with dual genitalia and you tell them to only use one and ignore the other or cut it off…lol. You still didn’t mention the partners of said ppl. Are they not engaging in homosexuality when having sex with an intersexed person? You also gave no solution for those who are transgendered through surgery. Yea its wrong if you say so, but u leave it at that. I think you should admit that these issues are above your paygrade and cannot be explained away with nature religious doctrine.

    • gcmwatch says:

      David you seem to have a problem with people expressing their opinion. Clearly I stated I had no professional experience with this but since I WAS ASKED unsolicited for it, I gave it. You also seem to have a problem with something called choice. Something else that I said is a person’s perogative. I have neither the time nor inclination to address all the unmentioned variables of a person’s life. Your made it pretty clear that your role here is to simply sit in judgment and Im going to graciously allow you to continue doing so in a way that benefits us both.

  6. Alan says:

    Homosexuality is only covered in a very minute part of the Bible, yet you have made it into a HUGE issue. Jesus said much about hypocrisy and adultery, but not a word about homosexuality. You have set yourself up to have more authority than Jesus Christ, as He said:
    “For God did not send His Son into the world that He might judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” (John 3:17 LITV)

    Note that “JESUS DID NOT COME INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD.” So, shouldn’t you be abiding in Christ and showing the same mercy, grace and love? If He didn’t come to condemn the world, then how do you have more authority than the Almighty Creator of the Universe? Pray about it and ask for God’s wisdom!

    I have never, ever seen even a single homosexual converted through condemnation, but many through grace, mercy, compassion and love. “He who is without sin, let him throw the first stone!”

    • gcmwatch says:

      Alan, I think the problem is you have this blog confused with something else. I would suggest that you go back and READ the purpose and intent for this blog. Maybe that will help to reorient your response.

    • L. Davis says:

      Alan, Jesus came to save the people from their sins, and thus not condemn them to hell. His Spirit is in the world to convict the world of sin, so that they will cry out to God for forgiveness in repentance of their sins, whatever the sin(s) may be. Homosexuality is a sin, and all sin has the same wage, death.

      How little or much you perceive Jesus to have spoken about a particular sin is a weak rebuttal; it’ matters factually that he identified it as sin in both the Old and New Testaments, and has warned us all that reward of sin is eternal damnation. People are not saved by lies, half-truths or euphamism but by the truth. The truth is what makes every sinner who believes free. Compassion is love, and to tell one the truth is love. It was God’s love that sent Jesus to us to tell us the truth that we may not be condemned as sinners but saved by his grace as believers.

      Hearing the truth often hurts, but it’s the balm we need to heal. Jesus did not have to say much on the subject of homosexuality, because he said it all on sexual sins when he said, “In the beginning God created male and female; for this same reason shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife.” It’s God’s will that we are supposed to be praying to be done in earth as it is in heaven, and God has willed that man kind not lie with man kind as with a woman, nor for women to leave the natural use of the body. The sin is condemned but the sinner can be saved. It’s that simple.

    I completely agree with your beliefs. I am so glad I found your site. I was looking up some info on Mark Lowry and stumbled upon your site. Thank you for standing for the truth It’s encouraging to know everybody has not compromised. Don’t ever move the standard. We need to move closer to the standard, not move it back to where we are. Keep the faith. Hold the line. Others need this truth, and are watching us.
