Grace Evangelical Society (GES) was founded in 1986 to promote the life-giving truth that God offers man the free gift of everlasting life through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, apart from works done before or after the new birth (John 3:16; 5:24; 6:35, 47; 11:26).
Another of our aims is to promote Christian growth by emphasizing the Biblical truths about eternal security, assurance, and eternal rewards. Read more about what we believe.
Grace in Focus Radio
In this unique 13-minute show, Bob Wilkin and guests discuss issues that are vital to justification and sanctification, while keeping those issues distinct. Topics discussed include assurance of salvation, evangelism, eternal rewards, problem passages, perseverance theology, Calvinism and Arminianism, how to interpret Scripture, eschatology, and current issues in Free Grace Theology.
Grace in Focus, a free bimonthly publication, is filled with easy-to-follow topical and exegetical articles dealing with the gospel and assurance.
GES maintains a list of Free Grace Churches in order to direct people just like you to congregations that preach the gospel of grace. It is our hope that this list will help you find a church that preaches the gospel of grace.
What Is Free Grace Theology?
Free Grace theology is the view that
- everlasting life is a free gift that cannot be lost, received by faith alone in Christ alone, apart from works of any kind;
- assurance of our eternal destiny is based solely on believing Jesus’ promise to the believer, and not on looking to our works, experiences, or behavior;
- believers are accountable for our actions before God, and will be judged at the Bema to determine our eternal rewards, but not our eternal destinies.
