The heart and essence of true ID is to reach out where people are not being reached, to love, take care of, and to share the gift of hope through words and deeds.

The Bible says in John 21 that Jesus told his disciples to cast their net on the right hand side of the boat to find some fish — ultimately where fish had not been caught.  He also said to them, if you love me, feed and take care of my lambs and sheep.  We believe this is a call to those who are in-Christ. To show His love to all — including men, women, and children caught in the sex-industry.

We believe God has heard the cries of His people.  He has seen the misery, suffering, and oppression inflicted by harsh slave drivers and abusers.  He has heard the hearts cry for deliverance, and will continue to respond until it is complete!

And now the question is, Who will go?

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!” Isaiah 52:10

Our Mission

“Bringing restoration and healing to at-risk youth and individuals in the adult entertainment/sex industry by empowering them in discovering their true identity and purpose in life.”

The meaning behind our name, true ID: The Mask & The Reveal

The Mask

So often many of us go through life unaware that we are wearing a mask that covers up our true identity. This mask was created from what others have said about us, done to us, or what we’ve learned to believe about ourselves. It’s the mask that says, we aren’t good enough, smart enough, talented enough, or worthy enough to be of any significance. When we believe those lies we end up going through life trying to prove our self worth.  We try to compensate where we think we are lacking so we can be viewed as significant.

We go through life believing those lies, wearing a mask.

The Reveal

The unshakable truth is that each and every one of us has been created to be more than enough and with utmost significance, just as we are. It doesn’t matter what others may say about you, where you’ve come from, what you’ve done, or what you think you’ve become in this life! God’s truth about who you are can never be taken away. When those truths are revealed and believed we can begin to live out our life in our true IDentity.

The revealed truth will change your life and can change the world!

Who We Are

true ID is in existence because God responded to the prayers of His people. Prayers of individuals who were deeply concerned for the many sexually exploited individuals in the Las Vegas Valley and around the world. Prayers and cries to Him long before it was a thought or before we even came into existence.

true ID began to take form by a former dancer in the sex industry and a pastor who shared a passion to reach at risk youth and individuals who were sexually exploited. Other former adult entertainers, trafficked survivors, professionals in law enforcement, social services, counselors, outreach ministries, artists, business owners and men and women who shared the same heart and passion for the mission also stepped forward to offer their prayers, talents and expertise to help form what true ID is today.

Currently staffed by committed volunteers, is true ID’s uniquely designed program focuses on identifying their true self-worth and highlighting an individual’s gifts and talents to gain optimum opportunity to live their life to the fullest potential outside of the sex and adult entertainment industry. Regardless of how long one’s journey takes, true ID is passionately committed to walking with each person in discovering their God-given true IDentity.

Our Beliefs

The Bible

The Bible is the reliable, truthful, and the inspired word of God. The Bible stands as the central authority over our lives and faith (2 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 5:18)


We believe in the one true and holy God who created and continues to rule the universe and everything in it. We believe God exists in three persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (i.e.,Trinity). (Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Psalm 90:2; John 14:10, 26; 15:26; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2)

Jesus: God within Reach

Jesus Christ, the Son, is fully God and fully human. He lived a sinless life, died on a cross for the sins of humankind, was resurrected bodily on the third day, ascended into heaven and is coming again as King and Judge. Jesus is the only way that God has given for people to be reconciled to Him. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)

Holy Spirit: God within Us

The Holy Spirit is God. He comes to live in us at the moment we place our faith in Jesus. He empowers us to live an effective Christian life by affirming our salvation, encouraging us and giving us the strength to live a life that is pleasing to God and personally fulfilling. (John 14:16; Ephesians 1:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12)


Salvation is reconciliation with God through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. God offers us salvation by His grace alone and we receive it as a gift through personal faith in Jesus. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 8:38,39; Ephesians 1:13; 2:4)

The Great Commission

The instruction/assignment given by Jesus before he ascended into heaven to go, make disciples, and baptize them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to all nations of the world. This commission was given to his disciples and all future disciples, with the promise that He will be with us always to the end of time. (Matthew 28:18)
