Patristic Universalism

by David Burnfield

Welcome to Patristic Universalism 

(The Good News!)

To Him who [earnestly] remembered us in our low estate and imprinted us

[on His heart], for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever.

~Psalms 136:23 (AMP)

Our Mission

Spreading the news of God's unconditional love:
  • Without question God's love is unlimited and the theme should never be about fear or dread, but of peace that surpasses understanding.(Philippians 4:7).
  • God never changes, His Love, Grace and Mercy override our sins. If God is for us, whom shall be against us? (Hebrews 13:8, Romans 8:31,James 2:13)
  • "For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38-39 AMP)
  • God loves us all and will transform us all. " When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are Imperfect (sinners).” Mark 2:17
  • IF we have lost the way, we will find the way to Grace.  "All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the LORD: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee." Ps 22:27
  • We will all be healed of all our sorrows and trauma here in earth. "Heal me, O LORD, and I will be healed; save me, and I will be saved, for You are my praise." Jeremiah 17:14
  • All are invited and all are welcome! "The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" Let the one who hears say, "Come!" And let the one who is thirsty come, and the one who desires the water of life drink freely." Revelations 22:17
  • The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. Ps 103:8
  • ..."The LORD, the LORD God, is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in loving devotion and faithfulness." Exodus 34:6
  • The LORD is merciful and good; our God is compassionate. Psalm 116:5
  • Unconditional love...."It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no account of wrongs. Love takes no pleasure in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.…" 1 Cortinthians 13:6

Tenants of Faith

  •  We believe that there is only one way to the Father (Jesus Christ), His sacrifice was inclusive for everyone.  (John 3:16, John 14:6,Ephesians 2:18 1 John 4:11)
  • We believe Salvation can never be revoked or lost. Christ's blood secured salvation forever, but it is mankind's responsibility to prepare and work towards sanctification.Prepare for the Kingdom of God is at hand. (Romans 5:19, Matthew 3:2-3, Luke 13:24,1 Peter 4:18)
  • We believe Gehenna (hell) is a temporal place to restore and transform souls to prepare them to live in the Kingdom of God, and this is only possible through the Grace, Compassion and Mercy of God. (Luke 12:58-59,1 Peter 3:19, 1 Peter 4:6, Romans 8:38-39)
  • We believe God is literally Love and Compassion, and is not willing for any to perish for an eternity. (Matthew 18:14, 2 Peter 3:9,Palms 86:15,Isaiah 38:18)
  • We believe God is going to grant full knowledge to everyone, with an outcome of celebration.(Hosea 4:6, Jeremiah 31:34,Romans 14:11, Isaiah 45:23)
  • We believe that every knee and every tongue is going to WILLINGLY confess Jesus is Lord, and will be saved from an eternity without Him. (Isaiah 45:43, Philippians 2:11, Hebrews 14:11)
  • We believe Christ defeated Satan and death, and nothing can separate anyone from God's Grace. (Job 33:24, Colossians 2:14-15, 1 Corinthians 15:24, 1 Corinthians 15:55)
  •  We believe that no demonic authority can prevent anyone from receiving their full inheritance. (2 Timothy 2:13, John 10:29, Romans 5:18, Hebrews 9:12)
  •   We believe there will be a future new world where there will no longer be death, or suffering. God will restore His beautiful creation to peace and wholeness. (Acts 3:21, 2 Corinthians 5:17, Isaiah 60:20, Revelations 21:4)
  • We believe God is omniscient and His ways far out way any human. His love will reign and no soul can be left in their poor estate. For they will be cured by the Great Physician. (Isaiah 55:8-9, Mark 2:17, Luke 5:31,Psalm 139:8-9)
