Grace and Truth
Robert Griffith’s entire ministry as Pastor, preacher, teacher and passionate disciple of Christ has been guided by those two words. It’s impossible to comprehend the Gospel without a clear grasp of God’s amazing grace in saving us, reconciling us, sustaining us and empowering us in ministry.
However grace must always be accompanied by truth. Grace without truth leads to apostacy. Truth without grace leads to heard-hearted legalism. Both are fatal to the mission of Christ and the growth of God’s kingdom. Grace and truth are embodied fully in Jesus Christ, Who must always be at the centre of all preaching, teaching and ministry.
Pastor Robert Griffith was ordained in the Baptist Church in Australia in 1993 and has had a very broad pastoral, ministry and leadership experience both inside and outside the Church. That experience has given Robert a deep understanding of the mission of Christ and the place of the Church in 21st Century Australia.
Forces inside and outside the Church have placed enormous pressure on our preachers, teachers and leaders to alter the Gospel to make it more compatible with the humanistic syncretism of our age. Within that hostile environment Robert believes people are yearning more than ever for the Truth and for an authentic Christian experience through a relationship with the living, present God, in Christ, through Christ and for Christ.
