Christian Universalism

Ultimate Reconciliation in Christ

What is Christian Universalism? Christian universalism is a belief in the simple Bible truth that Jesus Christ is the “Lamb who takes away the sin of the world.” He is the promised Messiah of whom the prophets of the Old Covenant foresaw; Jesus is the Savior of the world, He is the “Second Adam,” through Whom all mankind will be restored to God’s original image, He is the only way to the Father, the only begotton Son of God Who gave His life for the world. We believe He is king and judge of the universe, and owner of all Creation, and that His purpose for the ages (aions) is to bring all things under His government and reconciled with Himself.

We believe that through His death, burial and resurrection He became the “Lamb who takes away the sin of the world.” As Christ Himself said, “If I be lifted up (crucified) I will draw all men to me” (as also prophesied in Psalm 22). Jesus is the Name before which every man, woman and child, from all of human history will bow before and declare that He is Lord. At that day, the prophesied “restoration of all things” shall come to pass, and of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end.

In the Greek New Testament, this teaching was called apokatastasis. Over the centuries, men and women used many different terms to describe this glorious teaching including ultimate reconciliation, universalism, Christian Universalism, Biblical Universalism, universal salvation, universal restoration, universal reconciliation, the larger hope, the greater faith, the doctrine of inclusion, Paul called it “The Glorious Gospel,” and “his gospel.” The founders of Tentmaker Ministries, Gary and Michelle Amirault, prefer the phrase “The Victorious Gospel of Jesus Christ.”The term focuses on Jesus Christ, the importance of the gospel and Christ’s ultimate victory. Tentmake Ministries is in the process of publishing a New Testament translation with that name.

While the early American Universalists embraced a biblical Christian version of universalism, when it merged with the Unitarian denomination, it became a non-christian organization.
