Sound Doctrine Ministries is an interdenominational organization of Christians committed to confronting members of cults with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and educating the Christian Church with regard to the cults. An Evangelical organization, we affirm the classical Christian essentials of the faith.
We believe in the verbal, full inspiration and authority of the Scriptures;
We believe in God as a Trinity of three persons with one essence;
We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, born of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit;
We believe in the Deity and personality of the Holy Spirit;
We believe in Salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
We believe in the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ for our sins.
We believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved to eternal life, and everlasting punishment for the lost.
What does Sound Doctrine Ministries Do?
Steve and his colleagues travel weekly to various cult gatherings to engage cultists in dialogue about their faith and to share the Gospel with them.
Trains Christians to Evangelize Cultists:
We will come to your church, student group, conference, retreat, etc., to prepare the people of your organization to share Christ effectively with the cultists in your area.
SDM is continually involved in researching the cults and has a wide range of resources designed to assist the church in sharing Christ with cultists.
