GRACE AMBASSADORS

Do You Teach Heresy?

By Justin Johnson

No.

There are many things that are unique and different about us that you will not find in the majority of other churches or ministries. None of these would constitute any sort of biblical heresy or cult. For example you may discover:

  • We use the Bible as a final authority not scholarship or history
  • We do not keep score, take attendance, or maintain church directories
  • We do not invite Santa Claus to church in December
  • We do more teaching and preaching than singing
  • We do not preach tithing (even for tax-deductions)

All of these things are a little out of the norm of mainstream ministries. This is because our focus is purely on seeing souls saved and saints edified through God’s Word (Romans 10:17).

We take pleasure in studying the Scripture and are motivated to study to show ourselves approved unto God (2 tim 2:15). We teach Mid-Acts Pauline Dispensational Right Division.

In Acts 24:14-15, Paul was accused of teaching heresy. He responded by saying that the accusations against him were unsupported, but the way they call heresy is what Paul was preaching from the Word of God.

Just as Paul did, we teach that we are saved by grace through faith in the blood of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9). The Bible says that Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, was made sin for us and that he paid our sin debt on the cross (2 Cor 5:21, 1 Tim 3:16, Romans 3:25). It is only through this faith in Christ that we obtain eternal life.

Many people today do not know what they believe and so fall into the trap of accepting whatever is the status quo. Just as in Paul’s day the status quo is often in opposition to Biblical truth. We use the Bible as our final authority instead of church tradition or pop philosophy.

If you would like to better understand God’s Word then stick around. If you think we are teaching heresy then send us your comments, we do not want to teach unsound doctrine any more than the next guy.

We do not promote heresy, but instead would encourage everyone to be fully persuaded in his own mind (Romans 14:5). Finding your own belief through a careful study of Scripture is what we would promote. Hopefully, Grace Ambassadors will help facilitate your learning through sound Biblical teaching.
