Our Mission: To offer freedom from unwanted appetites and passions, and freedom for holy living through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
My experience with Redeemed Lives (RL) helped me to make sense of the disconnect between my life and faith, and to begin to bring the two back together. It enabled me to understand the nature of my intimate relationships and friendships, and some of the steps I needed to take to open those relationships to the love of Christ. It had proved very hard to find help when I needed it. Even though at the time I was deeply moved by church life, and received much advice from people within the church, it seem that no one had heard of RL or ministries like it. Until I encountered RL, the advice I was given could all be categorized into one of two groups - either (1) that I should accept my desires basically define who I am and I should therefore find a way of building a life around them, or (2) that my desires are sinful and I just need to try harder to fight them. Neither of these options were acceptable to me: I had already made a promise in front of God and the Church to faithfulness in marriage, so defining myself according to desires was not a option; so I was left with the second option, which was disastrous for my soul, my marriage and other relationships. Then I found a third way provided by RL, working through unwanted desires through teaching, small group sharing and pastoral prayer. My whole life changed, for the better. -Nigel
