Faith Statement

Welcome to By immersing ourselves in the love of Jesus Christ, we are set free from the ties of Satan.  The truth shall set you free, and to know Christ is to know truth.

For nearly forty years I let myself be controlled by a sinful nature instead of submitting to the will of Jesus Christ.  Finally, I listened to what Christ has to say to me. I began to experience His love, His forgiveness and the freedom  He offers all.

This website is for the purpose of those who wish to develop a closer relationship with Him.  It’s purpose is to share how each of us can relate in the journey we experience traveling through this world of sin and heartache while clinging to the cross.

I am living proof and witness of the healing power of Jesus Christ. If you are gay, I invite you to pray and ask for God’s guidance in studying His word and responding to His call to live according to His will instead of our own will.

If you are a church pastor, leader or representative, I invite you to request an in-person testimony of God’s Word and healing power. Little education exists in churches today who are unfamiliar with why a person is or has been gay. I am excited to be able to come to your church or institution to share with you what God has laid on my heart.

I also have access to the testimony of many others, both mean and women who have responded to God’s call.

We are living at the crossroad of life or death. Many are currently in motion, bringing deception and lowering God to a human level, declaring His approval of self indulgences.  God has given me a message to arm people with truth conveyed with the love of God.

Gays, lesbians, homosexuals, same-sex attracted… however you want to tag them, have been searching for true love all their lives.  The church at large has failed to represent God’s love and guidance to this population. As a result, most have left the church in search of love somewhere else.

In most circumstances hate has been more of a realization than the loving, nurturing forgiving arms of Jesus Christ.

A wake up call has been sounded multi-denominationally.  God’s love extends to every sinner.  A true reflection of His love is necessary and must be extended to all who will accept Him prior to His return.

This website is dedicated to the focus of God’s love for all who will accept it. I challenge each of us to draw closer each day and allow the Holy Spirit to bring about conviction in the lives of all who will accept Him.

My prayer is that Jesus will speak to and through each of you who enter this site by sharing His love.

Know His Love Ministries

Purpose/Mission/Faith Statement

The purpose of Know His Love Ministries is to educate pastors, leaders and church members how to reach out, reflect God’s love and offer help to the gay, homosexual or same-sex attracted individual. For decades the church as a whole has been silent on this issue other than to include it as a sin in its fundamental statement of beliefs.

The ministry of Jesus was inclusive, not exclusive. Many have been rejected and have left the church, because no one provided the help and answers they desperately needed and that many have painstakingly requested.   God’s love and redemption is a gift to all sinners. 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11 “Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards and slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”

After a life of living openly gay, Christ convicted and converted me. I was then born again through baptism.  “Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’ John 3: 5-7

As a result of baptism I am a “New Creation” in Christ. I die daily to sin. “In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.” Romans 6:10-12

I am no longer a slave to a sexual identity or orientation. I am free in Christ. I experience temptation, but temptation is not my identity. Christ has washed me clean.

Learning to reflect God’s love to those stuck in an orientation they likely did not choose, can provide opportunity for freedom from sin. God loves each of us right where we are and gives each of us the opportunity to grow daily through Him. Regardless of what the sin has been, He offers us the way out.

Ignorance in the church has been a strong substitute for unintended harm. By learning to reflect God’s love to those who have been rejected and unwanted, a reputation of scorn and shame can be turned into one where all are invited to a sanctuary with a loving church family. We serve a powerful God. He will carry out the conviction in the hearts of those who seek His truth and forgiveness.

Feelings have been bruised and wounded beyond imagination. Due to this, injuries are deep and many are not quick to respond to a sudden change in treatment and offers of help.   Healing takes time. Jesus instructed us about gentleness and humility.  In Matthew 11:29 he said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Know His Love Ministries wants to help facilitate an understanding for pastors, church leaders and lay members in order to more effectively reflect the love of Jesus to those who have been lured by a lifestyle of deception.  In doing so, an outreach can be initiated that assures each child of God, that the church is a safe environment to heal in.  By participating as an active member of God’s family, the prodigal son or daughter can be welcomed home. We can demonstrate that God’s love is stronger than any love the world offers.

Unlike ministries to gays that are based on sympathy and compassion that adds to, or subtracts from God’s Word, Know His Love Ministries sympathizes with a soul in need of nourishing and healing provided through loving disciples sharing the keys to victory found in God’s Holy Word.  Man is his own worst enemy believing that his feelings are as good as truth. Jeremiah 17:9 ASV says: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?” This is a teaching of the world, not the Bible.  Know His Love Ministries is committed to principles and beliefs based solely on the Word of God.

It is the desire of Know His Love Ministries to show pastors, leaders and congregational members, that God provided us with exactly what He deemed necessary for those who are same-sex attracted. The tools are given to us to teach others to use.  Satan must give way to the power of God that is available to every one of us. John 15:7 NKJV says, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.”

Theological Beliefs

We believe the Bible is Holy and is God’s infallible Word to all mankind.  He warns us in Revelation 22:18 NIV, “I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

We believe that God ordains and sanctifies one union as he set forth in Genesis 2: 24. NIV “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” Marriage between a man and a woman is the kind of marriage God instructs.

We believe all mankind has a sinful nature.  Romans 6:6-8 NIV “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be rendered powerless, that we should no longer be slaves to sin – because anyone who has died has been freed from sin. “

We believe that same gendered sexual relations are sin. “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”  Leviticus 20:13 NKJV

We believe the Holy Spirit convicts the hearts of sinners.  Romans 8: 3-14 NIV, “For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.”

We believe in the power of forgiveness. 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

We believe all Christians are called to holiness, yet we will not attain perfection like Jesus on this earth.  2 Corinthians 4:7-12, “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.”
