Church begins with like-minded people coming together to embrace their common spirituality and the belief that we are all just one and the same. Regardless of orientation, gender, religion, race, creed or nationality, we welcome you with open arms. You'll find we're not a traditional "my way or the highway" kind of church. In that regard, we're more the UNchurch; a movement of people, spiritually transforming humankind into a more peaceful and kind world as we embark on our path of enlightenment, together.
Many traditional churches are failing their congregations because of their inability to change with the times. No longer do you need to hold onto the old theories or memories of the past. We are a progressive, spiritual, LGBTQ church whose doctrine accepts all people as equal. We are All People All Truths House of Enlightenment. Our acronym is A PATH (of Enlightenment) or APATHOE.
At last, there is a spiritual church founded for LGBTQ people…who ARE the congregation, rather than a few of us scattered here and there in each of the traditional churches, like an afterthought. Of course, all are invited but just think— “What a concept!” —a church built from the ground up for the LGBTQ community where you are just as important as everyone else is, to God, Supreme Being, or whatever you call your Higher Power. We are all equal participants in this world, and you deserve the same recognition and the same space to come together to worship and practice your beliefs as the next guy. Do you think that sexual orientation or gender identity should diminish your freedom of religion, your value, your self-worth? No, of course not! You simply are who you are, and you deserve a church that feels wholly yours!
LGBTQ people identify as outsiders at many churches. That won’t happen at A Path. All people are valued and welcomed equally here. In the age of church alienation, where congregations are diminishing because of judgment or ill-alignment of religious beliefs, we are a breath of fresh air. We are the exception…where all people of all walks of life are welcome all of the time. No doom. No gloom. No sinners be damned. No saints sitting in judgement. No one trying to clone your behavior. No condemning doctrine. No box to squeeze yourself into. We want you exactly as you are, whatever you believe. We are the church created especially for all those driven from traditional churches because you just didn’t fit in.
Join us. You’ll see we are not a typical church. We believe we are the perfect example of how church should be. We are the church who comes together to create a better tomorrow by taking care of each other and those in need, today. We’re not just another church…we’re a movement. I think you’ll find a lot to love and a lot to get excited about! Lend yourself to the embodiment of change, social justice, and the spiritual transformation of humankind. We’re a growing community coming together to create a better world. We look forward to getting to know you and developing a spiritual connection.
