in Him
for life. 

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.

What Is Free Grace Theology?

Free Grace theology is the view that

  1. everlasting life is a free gift that cannot be lost, received by faith alone in Christ alone, apart from works of any kind;
  2. 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;
  3. 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.

From What Is Free Grace Theology? by Bob Wilkin
