Who we are

By grace restored has come into existence as a result of what is generally referred to as a 'fall from grace' and my restoration 25+ years later. (You can read my testimony on the Personal testimony page)

During those 'wilderness years' much had changed in Evangelical circles and on my return there were many issues I had to confront and deal with.

Gradually I managed to re-establish contact and renew fellowship with Don Hinchcliffe, Derek New, and Arthur Cornell, fellow students from Moorlands Bible College in the late 1950's.

They, together with my brother in law Phil Fryer and many other friends encouraged me to use my experiences to reach other backsliders.

In prayer I was reminded of the words of Jesus to Peter (Lk 22:31) "Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for you, that your faith fail not and when you are converted, strengthen your brethren".

I recalled how, just as Jesus predicted, Simon Peter went on to betray Him and after his restoration spent many years ministering to his brethren.

I also betrayed my Lord and like Peter having learned something of my own weakness, and the wiles of the Devil, I must use what I have learned to strengthen my brethren. May the Lord graciously use this site to that end.
