Founder and former pastor of the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America.
Ted Haggard
Please forgive my accuser...and, actually, thank God for him. I am trusting that his action will make me, my wife and family, and ultimately all of you, stronger. He didn't violate you; I did.
Haggard quotes
I think I know what you did last night. If you send me a thousand dollars, I won't tell your wife.
Haggard
During the conversation with Mike during and after the time he masturbated me, he told me about some drugs that he could get for me that would enhance my masturbation experience.




Haggard Ted quotes
The third big idea is that we confess our sins to someone close to us--a friend or our spouse. I don't mean a public declaration of our shortcomings; I mean confession in the security of a trusted and living friend.
Haggard Ted
I called him to buy some meth, but I threw it away.
Ted Haggard quotes
It was during the massage that it started to become sensual, and that led to him masturbating me... That was and is our only sexual contact.
Ted Haggard
You called my children animals!
Haggard Ted quotes
I am steady with my wife. I'm faithful to my wife.
Haggard
I was referred to Mike Jones from the concierge at a Marriott hotel when I asked for a masseur.
Haggard Ted
I went there for a massage.
Ted Haggard
I bought it for myself but never used it. I was tempted, but I never used it.




Ted Haggard quotes
I did not have a homosexual relationship with a man in Denver.
Ted Haggard
I am a firm believer in living as if there were no such thing as a secret. If we hide our sins and live in darkness, we will never get the healing we so desperately need; in fact, if it is hidden so well that we don't even recognize it, we may never even find forgiveness.
Haggard quotes
The fact is I am guilty of sexual immorality. And I take responsibility for the entire problem. I am a deceiver and a liar. There’s a part of my life that is so repulsive and dark that I have been warring against it for all of my adult life.
Haggard Ted
There is no such thing as a secret among our leaders; communication is very open and honest, and if it's not, then it can become seemingly brutal. You've heard my arguments for love, friends, and authenticity, but there are the deceivers, the manipulators, the control freaks, and the self-appointed teachers in the Body who would love to use our system for their own selfish purposes. We all know the realities of the old sin nature.
Haggard Ted quotes
I want a church I can stay in for years. I don't want surprises, scandals, or secrets from my church leaders.
Ted Haggard
Hi, Mike, this is Art(hur). Hey, I was just calling to see if we can get any more. Either a $100 or $200 supply. And I can pick it up really anytime tomorrow, or we can wait until next week sometime. And so, I also wanted to get your address so I can send you some money for inventory. But that's obviously not working, so if you have it go ahead and get what you can. I may buzz up there. I don't know, maybe even later today, but I don't know if your schedule would allow that unless you have some in the house. So, I'll check in with you later today. Thanks, bye.
Ted Haggard quotes
People know what's going on with other people. So, we are wise if we live our lives as if there are no secrets. If we have nothing to hide, then there's nothing for people to discover, and we're clean. Living as if there is no such thing as a secret will keep you from all kinds of pain and suffering, and it will open the door for you to receive God's love more fully. Live as if there is nothing to hide and you will maintain innocence.
Ted Haggard
I am convinced: people with pure hearts live better lives! Actually, one of the things I look for in a staff member is innocence. I love it when a person is not full of malice or unforgiveness or is not wrestling with secret sin. You can just tell by their countenance-they are wonderful people to be around.
Haggard Ted
I've never known anyone who has fallen into sin and been successfully restored by the formal church structure. Nor have I ever seen a formal church structure wisely deal with sin, enabling ministry to continue without interruption.
