FTL has become an increasingly important part of our local church ministry. Any church today that is reaching the lost with the gospel must find a way to help those who are dealing with addictions and life-dominating sins. There is nothing magical about FTL. It is a discipleship ministry specifically designed for people who desperately need to find Jesus Christ and grow in Him.

We have also found that FTL is a great tool, not only for people dealing with addictions, but also for people facing other significant life issues. It provides a deeper, more accountable form of discipleship than is found in other typical church ministries. Fulfilling the Great Commission in today’s culture demands a ministry like this.

Michael Gambrell
Former Addict & Current Student

As a cocaine addict and an alcoholic for years, I was on a path of no return. Years before, I attended AA, but the "higher power" mentality was not for me. Even then, I knew the truth of God's Word.

12 years ago, Christ saved me, but I still battled my addictions. By God's grace, the drug addiction faded very quickly. However, I still drank, and I kept failing over and over.

A friend invited me to Freedom That Lasts, and I learned that real victory and true freedom comes from walking with God and cooperating with Him to change who I was. I finally had hope that overcoming addiction was possible with God's help. God used FTL to rescue me and continues using it to change my life.
