Description

Excerpt from a 2008 sermon preached by Steven Furtick at Elevation Church in NC. Furtick states that the minute people get saved in his church, his church is no longer for them. Essentially making it very clear that Elevation is not a church; elevation is an outreach event every "service." "Cheap grace is the grace we bestow on ourselves. Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession.... Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate." ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost Of Discipleship
