Welcome to Mercy To All .NET, the Internet ministry site for Logos Ministries.

Since 1972,
Rev. Bob Ellis has been teaching Bible classes and seminars on a quest for the truth about God through Jesus Christ. For Bob, it’s not enough to simply grasp sound doctrine and believe the “right” things. He wanted the information to mean something; to make a difference in the way life is lived. He wanted to find the real joy and peace that Jesus promised and the abundant life that He came to give us. So Bob’s approach to scripture is not to find a replacement for the Old Testament Mosaic Law, so that we can build a standard no one can live up to and continue to live our lives in guilt and fear. His goal was and is to find the way of freedom, relating to the LORD in righteousness by practicing the presence of God through faith by grace. 

In 1994 while on this quest for truth, Bob compiled the research of the late Ken Coulter (Founder of Grace Ministries, Inc. of Dallas and New Orleans) into a booklet called "Dispelling the Myth". It is an exegesis of the problematic passages dealing with homosexuality. The first Internet site containing this work went up in 1996. The original site is now off-line. Since then, more than two dozen other web sites have sprung up with this work on them including a Portuguese version. Mercy To All includes not only the official version of "Dispelling the Myth", but also other writings from Bob’s unique perspective.

Purpose Statement And Ministry Goals

The focus of the Logos Ministries shall be to bring ALL people to a knowledge of the redeeming love and provision of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins; reconciling of the broken relationship between God and mankind.

There is a special call to the mission field of the gay community; dispelling the myth of God’s “limited” love and instead sharing with them the message of God’s unmerited acceptance to all people who believe. Serving also as a beacon of light to the straight community as they relate to the issues of prejudice against anyone generated by traditional beliefs based on ignorance; proclaiming to them the genuine message of God’s love for all and his acceptance on the basis of faith and not on the basis of any other issue.

To Make Disciples:
Matthew 28:19
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Disciple Making is defined as the person to person investment one makes of their life toward influencing the life of other(s) for the purpose of promoting the expansion of the kingdom of God on earth.

We do this through:

  1. Prayer Meetings
    In keeping with the command of Jesus to ask in order to receive his empowerment for the mission:

    Matthew 7:7
    "Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you.  8  "For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it shall be opened.”

    Matthew 18:19
      "Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven.”

    And James says….
    James 4:1  What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members?  2  You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. And you are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask.  3  You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures.
     

  2. Consistent Opportunities for the Activity of Worship
    Hebrews 10:23  Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24  and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25  not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another

    Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
     

  3. Strategic Evangelistic Outreaches
    Mark 16:15
    He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation
    These are special events strategically and routinely scheduled to bring a consistent focus on those who have not heard the gospel (good news) about the love and unmerited favor (grace) of God demonstrated specifically through the sacrificial atoning death and life-giving resurrection of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
     

  4. Concerted Teaching Programs
    2
     Timothy 4:1  I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: 2  preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.

TEACHING PROGRAM
Recognizing that successful Christian living is contingent upon:

Maturity

Ephesians 4:11  And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12  for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13  until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.  14  As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; 15  but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him, who is the head, even Christ, 16  from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by that which every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love. 

Education Program Goals: 

  •      Mature the body of believers concerning their spiritual gifts so that they can take their place in the work of service (ministry).

  •      Provide large consistent doses of education in the Word of God (Bible study) to bring stability and direction to otherwise directionless lives.

  •      Bring guidance and direction for the expressed purpose of producing men and women who have noticeably productive lives and are able to demonstrate a life-changing kind of love toward others.

                        One-On-One Relationship Building:

  •      Provide accountability

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another.

  •      Training in righteousness

    2 Timothy 2:2 And the things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.
