“Legalism lacks the supreme sense of worship. It obeys but does not adore.”
~ Geerhardus Vos ~
“We make His love too narrow by false limits of our own; And we magnify His
strictness with a zeal He will not own. For the love of God is broader than the Measure of the mind; and the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind.”
~ F. W. Faber ~
“To abide in Jesus is to be fully ourselves. It is to live out our own distinctive human lives while at the same time the fullness of Christ’s life flows around us and into us and through us.”
Vernon Grounds ~
“It is the branch that bears the fruit
That feels the knife,
To prune it for a larger growth,
A fuller life.”
~ Annie Johnson Flint ~
“You shall know the truth and it shall make you odd.”
Welcome to the web site of Evangelicals Concerned Inc. We are the national network of gay and lesbian evangelical Christians and friends. A non-profit organization founded in 1975 by Dr. Ralph Blair, EC has served the gay community since then, providing hope, encouragement, teaching and fellowship to women and men seeking to integrate their faith and sexual orientation. On these pages you’ll find the Good News of God’s grace and peace in Christ to a people called to lives of grateful service. You’ll find what we believe, how we view the clobber passages that are so often used against us and much more. Dr. Blair’s quarterly Record and Review, a literature review on religion and homosexuality, is also available.
We trust God, our Creator.
We trust Jesus Christ, Savior and Lord.
We trust The Holy Spirit, our Helper.
We believe the Bible, God’s inspired Word.
It is our infallible guide for faith and conduct.
We believe the Good News that God was in Christ reconciling
the world to God and making possible our reconciliation with ourselves and each other.
We affirm the universal communion of believers.
We commit ourselves to be Jesus’ followers.
