The Story of All Saints Parish

Scripture passages from the Bible are often interpreted and misused to oppress minorities and to separate them from the rest of the community.  This abuse of the Word of God causes great pain and division in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and Queer (GLBTQ) community.  This supposedly scripture-based prejudice against GLBTQ persons cause many To turn away from religion.
All Saints Parish began serving the GLBTQ community in Ventura County, CA in March 1997.  Initially, we were founded as a way to provide a powerfully positive place for GLBTQ people, their families, friends and supporters to proclaim their personal relationships with GOD.  Our goal was, and continues to be, to correct the misunderstandings that have separated some from the Body of Christ.
To those that have been ostracized, we show that scripture and Gospel should be used in a loving, accepting and awarding manner.  It must not be used to castigate people on the basis of their race, gender or sexuality.  In this light, we are a welcoming – open – honest place for ALL the people of God to worship and pray together as the people of God.  We strive to make All Saints a place wherein all can feel the warm embrace of our loving Father.

All Are Welcomed, Affirmed and Encouraged!
