Isaiah 61:1 KJV
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound”
We are known as Gothic Christianity because our primary focus is goth and because our primary ideology is Christian but over the years we have encountered and journeyed with other subcultures, populations, and people groups that are as marginalized by our society and by the mainstream of Christianity as goth.
Our heart goes out to these groups including but not limited to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning individuals, witches, wiccans, pagans, and others that follow an alternative spiritual path. Within Christianity itself there are Gnostic and esoteric groups who don’t interpret the scriptures the same way or hold to the dogmas of the main stream of Christianity.
Our mission is to create a home for the homeless, a place of refuge for the outcast whether or not that outcast is Christian and regardless of the person’s race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, ancestry, national origin, physical or mental disability, or spiritual ideology.
We can’t be everything to everyone but we can create a home for those that resonate with our values and want to journey with us. Whoever you are, whatever you believe, if you have felt marginalized somewhere else, you will be valued here, if you have been condemned by other Christians or by the mainstream of our culture, you will be loved here.
Isaiah 61:3 KJV
“To give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He might be glorified.”
