~ OUR PHILOSOPHY ~

With Jesus anything is possible.
 

Prodigal Ministries assists individuals with same-gender attractions or who are gay-identified and who desire purity and wholeness do find freedom in Christ. We respect and unconditionally love every person regardless of his or her sexual identity, feelings or behaviors. We desire the utmost good for all, and conclude that God in His Word did not ordain homosexuality, but had a greater redemption and restoration in mind for all. We believe that condoning homosexuality or gay-identity is not the only position or option for individuals with same-gender attraction.

 

Homosexuality is not genetic or biochemical.

 

We are not persuaded by the theories or the propaganda that homosexuality is genetic, in-born or in any way an unchangeable destiny. We believe that every aspect of the human condition has been contaminated by sin and that additional factors such as developmental conditions resulting from family dynamics, personality traits, and life events may leave some individuals predisposed towards a same-gender attraction.

 

People can change and change is not an all-or-nothing process. 

 

We believe it is possible for a person to obtain a heterosexual identity by mending the wounded places in his or her emotions, belief systems, and relational abilities. Ultimately, only Christ can accomplish such change. Change is not immediate nor is it all or nothing. Growth and healing are a life-time process.

 

Any person with same-gender attraction has the freedom to choose to receive support from Prodigal Ministries and other believers.
 
Often, men and women who face the issues that affect them deeply in their sexual identity and feelings gain little support and much opposition. We believe that men and women with unwanted same-gender attractions have the right to supportive assistance. We desire to offer information, prayer, and support to individuals who choose to embrace the recovery process — 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. (1 Corinthinas 6:11).

 

Freedom of Choice

 

We, as citizens, have placed ourselves peacefully within the community to respect an individual's right to choose their life-goals. We believe that men and women have the right to have supportive assistance in their personal choice. We are here and offer information, prayer and support for those who desire to make changes in their lives through obedience and surrender to a loving Savior.

 

Dr. Ruben Fine, received his Ph. D. in clinical psychology from the University of Southern California. As the Director of the New York Center for Psychoanalytic Training he serves as a Visiting Professor at Adelphi University. Dr. Ruben Fine states:


“...a considerable percentage of homosexuals became heterosexual.... whatever procedure is adopted. In this connection public information is of the greatest importance. The misinformation spread by certain circles that homosexuality is untreatable does incalculable harm to thousands of men and women.”

 


Testimonials from our clients:
 
Again and again, men and women communicate how critical Prodigal Ministries’ services were at a time in their lives when they needed help the most.

 

In Joe’s case, a married father of two, he reached out for help when he was at the lowest point in his life and desperate to change.

 

"I led a double life. I had anonymous sex with hundreds of men. I knew I didn’t want to continue. I had hit bottom…Prodigal comes along side men and helps them on their way."

 

Joe made a serious commitment to make changes in his life and knew he couldn’t do it alone. With the counseling, support and guidance that Prodigal Ministries offered, Joe has turned his life around and saved his marriage.

 

Hundreds of other marriages like Joe’s have been restored, families reunited, relationships mended, and men and women led to freedom and wholeness through the love and power of Jesus Christ working through Prodigal Ministries.
