Grace Alliance was originally an idea from a number of pastors who wanted to connect grace churches to each other. The idea was to create a platform that was different from any other church network. At it’s heart Grace Alliance is about providing relationship, support and friendship for pastors.
An initial gathering in 2015 in Zürich Switzerland attracted around 80 pastors and was a great success. The sense from those who attended was that Grace Alliance had an important strategic role in developing healthy grace based churches in Europe and beyond.
The story continues to unfold. We are a part of a grace revolution that is being used by the Lord to bring hope and freedom to millions of people around the world. You can help us write this story of love & unmerited favour in the lives of your church as a member of Grace Alliance.
Grace Alliance is not just another church growth network but a genuine group of churches who preach Jesus at the centre and the full gospel of grace.
We want leaders to discover more of the Lord’s unmerited favour in their own lives and also to become effective ministers of grace. Our resources are there to help local churches grow in and function in grace.
The purpose of Grace Alliance is to connect these churches to the leaders and ministries that will help them to develop themselves and their churches in grace.
Most commonly asked questions about grace.
We believe that salvation is through believing in Jesus and Jesus alone. In John 14:6, the Bible tells us very clearly that Christ is the only way to God and eternal life, and in Romans 10:9–11, the Bible tells us how to be saved and have eternal life: Believe in our hearts that Jesus died for our sins and was raised from the grave, and confess with our mouths that He is our Lord and Savior.
When reading about the Lord’s chastening in Hebrews 12, it is important to understand that the book of Hebrews was written in Greek, and “chastening” is the Greek word paideu, which means “to train children, to cause one to learn, or to be instructed or taught”. Hence, the Lord’s chastening is to be seen in the context of our heavenly Father teaching or disciplining His children.
The unpardonable sin is committed when a person constantly rejects Jesus, knowing full well that He is the Messiah. When Jesus mentioned the unpardonable sin in Matthew 12:31–32, He was speaking to the Pharisees who rejected Him at every turn and were looking for ways to kill Him.
The day you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, you became a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17). As a Christian, a believer in Christ, curses no longer have the right to operate in your life. This is because Jesus took all your sins—past, present and future—on the cross, became a curse for you (Galatians 3:13) and bore the full wrath of God for them.
The significance of the anointing oil lies in its pointing us to Jesus’ finished work at the cross. In the same way olive fruits have to be crushed in order for the oil to flow out, Christ was crushed at different points in His passion so that we may enjoy wholeness in every area of our lives, and that God’s blessings may freely flow toward us.
As you are trusting in the Lord, know without a shadow of doubt that as surely as Jesus has borne your sins, He also bore your diseases (Isaiah 53:5, New Living Translation). God loves you so much, that He sent His son Jesus to give you abundant life (John 3:16, John 10:10)—wholeness in body, mind, relationships, finances and health. In the same way earthly parents desire the best for their children, God, who is our loving heavenly Father, wants His children to be healthy, happy and whole. It is His will that you may prosper in all things and be in health (3 John 1:2)!
Be strengthened and encouraged to know that God loves you, cares deeply for you, and wants to supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19). Today, you can look to your heavenly Father for His provision because on the cross, Jesus bore all your sins on His own body and gave you His own righteousness. This righteousness is a gift—it cannot be earned or lost—and knowing that you now stand righteous before God allows you to confidently expect to receive from Him, exceedingly abundantly above all you can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).
