True Grace Ministries

Welcome to The Open House Church Articles, presented by True Grace Ministries, one resource among many for disciples who seek ever more intimate communion with Christ and within the household of faith, and who seek to engage the world in lov ing witness as ambassadors of God's Kingdom (Heb. 3:1-6; John 17:20-26; Col. 1:23,13).

Please keep in mind the fact that the True Grace Ministries web site is undergoing continuous revision. The articles included here have come from a variety of sources, including speeches, articles, tracts, and other presentations, and they have been composed over a period of time and many of them are no longer in print. Thus there may be some inconsistency in thought or development.

A writer's inclusion on this site does not imply his full agreement with all of the articles; each writer is responsible only for his own stated views, and does not necessarily reflect the views of True Grace Ministries. Many of the articles on the True Grace Ministries web site have been included only for the viewers use in the comparison of differing views and beliefs.
