ABOUT AGAPE ROAD MINISTRY (Overcoming Same Sex Attraction):
Agape Road ministry at the Rock church in San Diego, is a growing ministry that helps those who struggle with gender identity confusion, homosexuality, same sex attraction, sexual brokenness, and identity issues; we also help family, friends, and loved ones of those struggling with such issues. We believe in traditional, conservative, Biblical principles, and confidently expect God to help and to heal as He promises in His Word.
We proudly count ourselves among many world-wide Biblically Christian “Ex-Gay” ministries, including www.restoredhopenetwork.org, which held their annual conference at City Life Church recently in Mission Valley, San Diego, CA. To our relief, we have seen God reach the deepest parts of our souls, and personally and lovingly bring light, healing, and wholeness. We offer weekly meetings, where we receive foundational discipleship training as well as study material relevant to our specific sexual and identity issues. We gather with and support men, women, and parents and friends, who have been affected by gender issues, homosexuality, same-sex attraction, or sexual brokenness. Finding our very freeing “identity in Christ” is one of our key strategies. We will offer an extensive Resource List at the upcoming conference for those who are interested.
Our position on these issues is Biblically sound... that homosexuality, same sex attraction (SSA), transgender, and gender identity issues are developmental, not inborn, and that Jesus can save and bring substantial if not complete healing over time.
