Grace Conference Interview

Earlier this year, Andrew met with Lucas Miles, the founder of the North American Grace Conference. Lucas is also the president of the Oasis Network for Churches, as well as the Senior Pastor of Oasis Granger Church in South Bend, Indiana. He made a special visit to AWM's campus to interview Andrew and to film a video segment to be shown at the 2012 Grace Conference. Be sure to watch the interview below as Lucas invites Andrew to share his perspective on balancing Biblical truths, the tensions between seemingly contradictory passages of Scripture and his views on the doctrines of Universalism prevalent in the church today. Don't miss this candid interview.

Good interview...I have been anxious to know Andrew's opinion on what I'm hearing concerning these new doctrines, seeping into our churches. I watch Andrew daily, but since they are taped ahead, I know its impossible for him to address current topics that I find disturbing; so this interview helped me, myself, to understand what the right attitude is, concerning these new doctrines. The Holy Spirit does help with discernment with what I hear from other ministries, but I so value Andrew and his "correct" teaching and beliefs, so this interview was a blessing and I hope this young pastor will embrace what he heard, and continue to teach correctly those under his ministry.

As always the question is, where are the grace churches here in the United States?

It is very difficult to attend a local church, and find out that the doctrine that is taught is diametrically opposed to most of what you believe. There are some things that are taught that are not 'deal breakers' so to speak, but if they don't understand John 10:10 which is our personal foundation scripture, that God is good, (not 'you never know what God is going to do') and realizing that the devil is the one who is at the root of all adverse things, sickness, poverty, etc.
then, that IS a deal-breaker! And often the current church growth mentality at any cost, and the 'seeker friendly' movement has watered down the gospel in some churches, where you can't hardly recognize that it's a church!

But you need a church! Like Andrew said in this interview, you need a place to worship, to contact when you have a need, etc. We fellowship with other like-minded believers in a bible study. Sunday mornings we watch Charis Christian Center live streaming from Colorado Springs (next door to the ministry) take communion and remind ourselves that where 'two or three are gathered together', there Jesus is in our midst. I am praying and believing that God will release us to go and live in the Springs where we would have the double blessing of a balanced faith/grace church and a ministry that has so greatly impacted our lives, such as Andrew's! I am submitted to my husband's leadership and so far God hasn't spoken to him for us to make that move, but I am believing it won't be long!

I'm sure CBC is encouraging those called to being a pastor to start planting churches all across the United States, so that those of us who believe this way will have a place to go to church!

Thank God for CBC!

Yes, a good interview. What really spoke to me was Andrew's reminder of John 13:34-35. God has certainly changed my life through Andrew's teaching on the balance of grace and faith. I have been truly set free. And the danger is that we do become Grace Snobs. That's why we will know if we are on the right path if John 13:-34-35 is evident in our lives. 1 Cor 13-13 re-affirms that, as does Romans 13:8-10. Thank you Father for your Word, which is truth, alive, and never returns void.

If Christians want their Christianity to survive in this ever evolving Universe, then they need to resolve to evolve; and drop the outdated and primitive hell threat and superstition and the Concept of Dark Ages. Otherwise, they will die out completely and another religion will take over. Most likely, that is what it's going to happen. The law of nature indicates that what doesn't evolve die out.
The choice is to evolve or die.

I'm very thankful for Brother Andrew and his ministry. He's been ministering at our church in Charlotte, N.C. For more than 25 years. He's been a tremendous blessing to us!! I was raised in very religious churches the first 15 years of my life. I never felt that God was pleased with me and that serving him had to be so hard. Praise The Lord at the age of 15 I was blessed to find our church that taught this same truth Brother Andrew teaches! I know everyone doesn't have this privilege. Thank you Lord for my Pastor, Pastor Dean Melton.

Since coming in touch with the ministry of Andrew Wommack my ministry has been totally transformed. Many of the things i have believed but was "afraid' to teach now i do boldly knowing am not alone in the believe in a GOOD GOD whose only desire is to bless His children and not to judge them to condemnation...THAT THE WORK WAS FINISHED ON THE CROSS

the album You Already Got It...WAS AN AAAHA MOMENT FOR ME!

Thank God for making your teaching free on line..i am teaching them here in our church in Johannesburg South Africa

I really do not know andrew that much, but i must say to my fellow brethren, that the reason why the holyspirit was given is to lead us into all truth, men like andrew and me and many other people, must never be our final authourity, the words can not make us one, but what the holyspirit reveals is final,.
But we need to walk daily in the spirit, otherwise another spirit will tell us something else and we will remain confused.
We must be like the bereans who will not accept pauls talking as final authourity, but will search the scriptures by the holyspirit and confirm what he was saying to be true, he paul said he found the "more noble" because of this.
Its noble to affirm words in the Holyspirit if you walk in the spirit.

Yes, we are saved by grace through faith, but isn't faith also a gift from God? Isn't it God who looks for us the lost and draws us to Him? Isn't it God who gives us faith to believe? The Scriptures say that GOD gives every man the measure of faith, and that JESUS is the author and the finisher of faith. So in the end, it is still the grace of God!

Andrew (9/7/13): yes, everyone is given the same measure of faith but we have to use it. God gave us free will. We have the choice to walk by faith or walk by sight.
