Welcome to Recovering Legalists Ministries!

Mission Statement

Recovering Legalists Ministries was founded to assist those people who have been involved in churches or cults where His grace was not fully explored and appreciated and those who have not experienced unconditional love in their families of origin. We wish to point people to Jesus.

We are complete in Him (Colossians 2:10).

The mission of RLM is simply to point those recovering from legalism* to Him and His love and care. Some of the means are as follows:

Pointing those in recovery to healthy ministries–including tapes and videos on grace and God’s unconditional love.
We encourage recovering legalists to appreciate their relationship with Jesus and use their spiritual gifts in the part of Christ’s Body to which the Holy Spirit leads.
Other good works projects which come to our attention. Jesus had compassion on the sick, poor and distressed. Jesus is in us (Galatians 2:20) and we shall respond as able.

New Testimonial!

Thank you for your kind words. I also want to thank you again for the time that you and your friends gave to me while I was still wrestling with God’s grace. Truly it was a defining moment in my life and I am only here today because of you and your Recovering Legalists’ willingness to walk out God’s love and mercy. I will be forever grateful and any Kingdom work that I may be credited for will most certainly be accounted to you as well.

We pray all is well with you and yours. Please let me know if we can help you in any way.

Wishing you His perfect shalom,

Marc Stein
Managing Director
