LifeGuard Ministries exists to minister the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ to all impacted by same-sex attractions.
Our Mission is to provide support, education, and faith-based peer mentoring to people affected by same-sex attractions: men, women, youth, parents, spoused, friends, family, and the church at large. In part, we do so by encouraging education, equipping the body of Christ to love to those with seam sex attractions. While we believe that everyone person is of sacred worth, we think that the practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching.
LifeGuard Ministries takes a clear stance on advocating the love of Christ to those impacted by same-sex attractions. We support the Biblical teaching that acting out on same-sex attraction is not consistent with God’s loving plan, but there is always mercy and grace available for each of us.
Statement of Purpose
LifeGuard is a private, faith-based, Christian, support ministry for individuals impacted by same-sex attractions. Our beliefs are taught in the same Bible and found in our Statement of Faith. Our purpose is to walk with ministry participants as we all learn to follow Jesus and His teachings. We do not attempt to alter anyone’s sexual attraction, nor do we promise that this will take place. We are not professional counselors, however, we encourage group participants to see professionals if needed.
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious, and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His return in power and glory.
We believe that for salvation, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential and that this salvation is received solely through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, not as a result of good works. We believe that by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Christin are enabled to live a godly life and to perform good works. We believe in the resurrection of the both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
