FirstLight is a St. Louis based ministry that is dedicated to sexual integrity and helping people to live a life according to God's standards on sexuality.
"The way of the righteous is like the first light of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day."
St. Louis Area
In a world full of confusion and heartbreak, pain and controversy, many individuals – Christians and non-Christians alike – do not understand God’s perspective on sex. The mission of FirstLight is to help them see their sexuality in light of God’s word and recognize that through Jesus Christ, there is hope and healing for anyone caught in patterns of sexual sin.
Sexual Integrity Groups
If you or someone you love struggles with compulsive masturbation, regular use of pornography, or sexual infidelity, there is help. Our support groups provide a safe and confidential place to talk about these issues with others who understand.
Spouse Support Groups
It is often difficult for women who struggle with sexual addiction to find a safe place to talk about it in the church. FirstLight’s group for women who battle sexual addiction provides accountability, prayer, and support from others who know the difficulty of these issues.
Parent Support Group
We also provide groups for parents and family members of those who struggle with same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria. A loved one’s struggle in this area—or choice to live in the lifestyle—can be very painful and confusing for those who care for him or her. This group offers support and encouragement as struggling family members learn how to love well and grieve the pain that they and their loved one may feel over this issue.
Sexual Minority Groups
Our Sexual Minority ministry seeks to provide community for people in the church who experience non-heterosexual attractions or conflict with their gender. This ministry offers a safe place for people to ask questions, be understood, and do life together within the context of a theologically conservative community.
