A new church directory listing churches who affirm redemption and the redeemed while welcoming those seeking freedom from homosexuality launched today.
The idea for the directory came from New York Pastor Fred Rochester who wrote on his blog that a “new wave was coming”:
In light of many local churches and pastors becoming Gay Affirming Churches, we unapologetically declare the fact that we are an EX-GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 6:11…
“And such WERE some of you. But you WERE washed, but you WERE sanctified, but you WERE justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
There are those that live in hopelessness unnecessarily. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides hope for those trapped in the sin of homosexuality. Through the sinless, shed blood of Jesus, by His grace, and mercy, you can experience new life in Christ to prevail over the sin of homosexuality.
The intent is not about heterosexuality. The intent is to help you, through the grace of God, to willingly move you from sin, to holiness, to help you become whole in Christ.
As pastor and founder of the Corinthian church, The Apostle Paul boldly set the precedent by openly affirming those who had been redeemed from homosexuality and sanctified by the blood of Jesus. That became the focus of a powerful kingdom strategy Rochester noticed had been severely underutilized by the contemporary church in its struggle against homosexuality.
“Having a visible, openly identified network of churches welcoming and affirming former homosexuals, their families and loved ones is both positive and proactive”, said Pastor DL Foster, Senior Director of the Overcomers Network, which is hosting the directory.
Why list as an EXGLBT Affirming congregation?
EXGLBT Affirming Churches distinguish the true church of Jesus Christ from those supporting homosexuality. By listing your church as an EXGLBT affirming church, you’re inviting the redeemed to come and fellowship in a righteous and holy environment.
Listing as an EXGLBT Affirming Church strategically places the local church in a visible position to the world as affirming God’s redemptive work. In addition, you encourage members to walk in boldness, sharing their testimony and giving God glory. By affirming former homosexuals, you give them a place of safety and growth.
Listing as an Exgay Affirming Church sends a signal that you won’t compromise truth.
The listing is free and with no requirements for membership or meetings. Listed churches should accept basic Christian doctrines of deliverance, freedom from sin by faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin. To list your church as Redemption-Affirming and Deliverance-Welcoming congregation go here.
We are a network of leaders, parents, pastors, bishops, evangelists, friends, professionals, musicians, singers, prophets, students and poets with room to grow and welcoming all who seek to follow the model and standards of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The ON trusts Jesus Christ as the only source of freedom from homosexuality, lesbianism, transgenderism, bisexuality, gender confusion, pornography and other forms of sexual immorality that inhibit the glory of God from shining through their lives. The ON is focuses on empowerment, teaching, discipleship, fellowship, inspiration, information, good works, worship and devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.
The ON was founded in January 2010 as a small Facebook group organized by Pastor DL Foster. We adopted the term Overcomer based on the following biblical passages which we believe accurately reflect our freedom experience with God.
Drawing from Matthew 5:16, our motto is Turn your Light ON! We believe our witness shines a light into the darkness we were once in and helps others to see there is a way out to freedom.

Hating sin is not an attack on anyone who sins. And it does not magnify one sin over another. Sin is sin. And unfortunately, we all sin. We are naturally sinful. No matter how much good we do, our good could never outweigh our natural desire to gravitate towards sin.
This would all be in vain if we did not share the Gospel with you. For the Gospel is the reason we are here. By God’s amazing grace, the Gospel was shared with us. And this same Gospel, which transformed our lives, can transform yours as well.
The Gospel means good news. There is good news to share. The good news however will mean nothing to you if you were not aware of the bad news. So, let’s start with the bad news. The bad news is that we are all sinners. The bible says in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God.” Like was previously stated, no matter how “good” of a person we think we are, at the end of the day, we are sinners. We can never live up to God’s standard of righteousness. Furthermore, the bible says in Romans 6:23, “the wages of sin is death.” So, there is no way around it. We are sinners. And the only way to satisfy the penalty of our sin is death. But God, because he loves us, even more than we love ourselves, had a plan of salvation for us. And those plans to save us from the bondage of sin, to give us a new life, and to save us from his righteous judgment was through his Son Jesus Christ.
Christian discipleship is a mandated spiritual growth model given to us by Christ. It incorporates modeling, teaching, relationship, support and testing. If the Body of Christ forsakes discipleship, its members will not grow and thus will not be effective in their assignments. Some give up following Christ while others become confused, calloused, or complacent. Alternatively, they will be swept away by false doctrines and cults because they do not know the difference and are not stabilized in their faith.
