Witness Ministries was founded in February 1996 to help African Americans struggling against homosexuality to find freedom through and in Jesus Christ. Since that time, it has expanded its reach and scope to include all who seek freedom from from sexual sin by providing counseling, training, discipleship and events for the families, friends and loved ones of individuals struggling with the devastating effects of same sex activity.

BORN GAY OR BORN AGAIN?
The argument as to whether some people are "born gay" has for too long hindered the church's priority mission of facilitating redemption from sin. We've come to the place where it should be put to rest so that there are no barriers to introducing Jesus to broken people.
Big Picture Theology
Are people born gay? Yes, they are. All people are born with a spectrum of sinful proclivities that later develop into sinful behaviors. No one is born into this world untouched by the poison of sin. Its in every beautiful child's spiritual dna, undetectable by human machines, technology or scientific research. Homosexuality is simply one of those sinful conditions. We do not punish or blame people for sinful dna because we ALL have it. All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
While we are born in sin, we were not created in sin. Birth comes through human channels while creation was the work wrought solely by the hands of God. Thus man was created holy and blameless, in the image and likeness of God. Homosexuality was not present in the spiritual dna of our human foreparents. It entered in only when our foreparents sinned against the goodness of God and thus every person born thereafter would automatically receive this broken inheritance.
New Birth Changes Everything
Because we are born in sin and iniquity, God provided a fullproof way that every person who believed could escape sin and its ultimate payoff: death. His Son Jesus is that way, the only way any person can ever hope to experience a new life free from the curse of their birth condition. For those who desire relationship with God both here and now, being born again is not an option it is an unconditional requirement. Encased within that inescapable requirement, is a simple prerequisite. All you have to do is believe.
God's love is so deep for humanity and his mercy so pervasive, his response to those who believe is to fully recreate them in his image and likeness. He restores them to original holiness as "new creations" where the old birth condition is erased and a new life begins.
If you are struggling with homosexuality or believe that you were born gay in a condition with no possible hope of change, settle the questions, doubts and insecurities once and for all. Believe Jesus came to show you God's love by taking your place on the cross. Ask God to forgive you of all your sins and accept that he will abundantly pardon you.
As he promised he would, you will experience that supernatural change that millions have before you. Seek to know your God and his way through his Word. Witness Ministries can help you understand how to maintain and overcome challenges to your new identity. Contact us and let us know you're ready to live BORN AGAIN!
