Is Grace Evangelistic Ministries a church?
No. Grace Evangelistic Ministries is a missionary organization. Pastors’ of all denominations attend our Pastors’ Conferences. We do not dwell on denominational differences but upon the Biblical tenants of the Christian faith. Our theme is always “Back to the Bible.” We believe in the formation of a local church for the edification of the body of Christ. We encourage each other as members of the body of Christ. Biblically every church should be autonomous before the Lord, reporting directly to God, therefore G.E.M. does not encourage hierarchy.
Do we support ministries and orphanages around the world?
No. While these are noble efforts they are not what we do. We focus our time, energy and funds on evangelism.

How would you recommend a new believer to begin reading the Bible? People often ask “Should I begin with Genesis or should I start with the New Testament?
We recommend that you:
- First read the entire gospel of John.
- Then start reading from the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and following).
- Read two or at most three chapters a day until you finish the entire New Testament.
- When you finish the New Testament, you can then read both the Old and the New Testaments at the same time.
- Start the Old Testament from Genesis and read perhaps two chapters a day, and a chapter from the New Testament beginning again at Matthew.

What is an evangelist?
An evangelist is one who is given a spiritual gift to communicate the Gospel. All believers are commanded to share the gospel, but some are given a spiritual gift to do so. A Pastor/Teacher stays in one place to shepherd and teach one congregation, while an evangelist travels from place to place. An evangelist may have a teaching gift and teach foundational truth – like the apostle Paul did.
