Wayne Cordeiro And The “New Hope Christian Fellowship” Church EXPOSED!

By David J. Stewart | October 2012

       The world is changing very quickly. The level of apostasy in America is incredibly sad. Tens-of-millions of people have plunged into the depths of Satan, following apostate ministry leaders right into the hands of the New World Order.

I was listening to Wayne Cordeiro, an apostate minister in Oahu, Hawaii who teaches a false plan of salvation. Cordeiro is a very likable speaker and I was sad to learn that he teaches the heresy of Lordship Salvation. Cordeiro's church is the New Hope Christian Fellowship (NHCF) which he founded 27 years ago. Mr. Cordeiro and the Jehovah's Witnesses demonic cult share the same false understanding of the meaning of repentance. Wayne Cordeiro is a member of the apostate, The Foursquare Church. The Foursquare Church Exposed!

Foursquare Church Teaches Same Heresy Of Repentance As Jehovah's Witnesses

Here is the statement of faith of The Foursquare Church, which errantly teaches that a person MUST forsake sinful bad habits to be saved (which is self-righteousness)...

Repentance and Acceptance

We believe that, when people repent for their sins and accept Christ, they are justified through Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross. To repent means to be sorry for sins, but it also means to turn away from a sinful lifestyle. Accepting Christ means believing in Him as the only Savior. To be justified means being declared “not guilty” in regard to sin (Romans 10:9-10; 1 John 1:9). [emphasis added]

SOURCE: Salvation | The Foursquare Church

Now here is what the satanic Jehovah's Witness cult teach at their official Watchtower.org website (where their monthly AWAKE magazine is published)...

"Salvation is a free gift from God. It cannot be earned. Yet it does require effort on our part." [emphasis added]

SOURCE: What Must We Do to Be Saved? - Jehovah's Witnesses Official Web Site

What a major contradiction!!! How can salvation not be earned, but yet it requires effort? Most Christians are not aware that JW's teach salvation is a free gift, but they are deceitful and in reality require self effort instead. They are liars! It tricks people's minds because once you hear that salvation is a gift, it takes your mind off guard. One of the traits of human psychology is that people tend to think about the first statement mentioned to them, and then everything else after that is secondary.

Eternal life is a free gift that is solely based in Christ's righteousness, and not in one's departure from a sinful lifestyle. Both The Foursquare Church and the Jehovah's Witnesses are wrong, teaching demonic heresy! It's not merely a matter of semantics. These are two very, different, opposing, plans of salvation:

  1. The true Gospel found in the Bible teaches that salvation is based solely upon Christ's sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. We are saved by resting by faith in Christ's death, burial and resurrection. The Lord's blood washes our sins away. Salvation is by grace through faith PLUS NOTHING!
  2. In the heresy of Lordship Salvation, trusting the Lord isn't enough. A person is required to stop their sinful bad habits and forsake the sinful world to be saved. They must cease from living a sinful lifestyle as a requirement to be saved. This is unbiblical and a road to Hell.

Clearly these are two very different teachings. Biblical salvation is a free gift, plain and simple. A gift under a Christmas tree is there for the taking. There are no (nor can there be) requirements nor conditions in order to receive the gift (if it's truly a gift). It's tragic that ministries all across America have fallen prey to the heresy of Lordship Salvation. Most churchgoers are so worldly and apostate that they don't care about doctrinal integrity, so it's not an issue in most churches. They all use the corrupted New International Version (NIV) of the Bible.

The tragic consequence is that entertainment and psychology have replaced true worship and Bible-preaching in churches today. Most preachers cant preach their way out of a paperbag. Jesus taught in John 4:24 that God can only be worshipped IN TRUTH and in SPIRIT. Since most churches have adopted the Devil's watered-down, perverted, version of the Bible (the NIV), the doctrine of Christ has been diminished and phased out in many churches. When's the last time that you heard a sermon on the Godhead or the deity of Jesus Christ? How about Christ's miraculous virgin birth? When's the last time that you heard a man of God get angry in the pulpit and cry aloud against sin?

If you want to hear some real preaching, then please listen to Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001). This weak and characterless generation today won't tolerate a genuine man of God behind the pulpit, who preaches against sin by name and exposes the Satanic Catholic religion. Apostasy has set in across our nation's churches like rigor mortis in a dead body. We're far beyond code blue. The patient died a long time ago. The average church service is like a mortuary. Others are like Rock concerts. No wonder people are leaving churches by the droves to find God.

New Hope Christian Fellowship Says Non-Christians Valuable In God's Kingdom

Cordeiro's church, the New Hope Christian Fellowship (NHCF) teaches that unsaved people (non-Christians) are “valuable to God and to His Kingdom.” This is evil teaching, certainly not taught in the Bible. How is a Christ-rejecter valuable to God's Kingdom? On their official website, the church of New Hope Christian Fellowship states the following Satanic teaching...

“We Believe that every person, Christian and non-Christian alike, is valuable to God and to His Kingdom. Because people are eternally valuable to God, they are to us as well. Responsible evangelism will always be our cause and ongoing discipleship will always be the core of the ministry. (Matthew 18:14; Matthew 25:45; 2 Peter 3:9)”

SOURCE: Core Values - New Hope Oahu

BLASPHEMY!!! Cordeiro is teaching that Christ-rejecters (non Christians) are valuable to God's Kingdom. What a lie of the Devil! Proverb 10:7, “The memory of the just is blessed: but the name of the wicked shall rot.” The name of the wicked (unsaved) shall rot in Hell forever. Contrary to the message of Wayne Cordeiro and his apostate church, non-Christians are NOT valuable to the Kingdom of God. How can they be, for they have rejected the Lamb of God?

Certainly, every human being is loved and valuable to God as His creature; however, if you reject Jesus Christ, then God will reject you and His wrath is upon you continually...

John 3:36, “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”

Literally, God is mad at anyone who rejects the Gospel (the good news) of Christ crucified and risen for your sins. New Hope Christian Fellowship (NHCF) teach that the unsaved are “valuable to God and to His Kingdom.” That is simply not the Bible's message. The Bible sternly warns of coming judgment (Hebrews 9:27) and Hell fire for all eternity for the wicked (Psalms 9:17; Revelation 21:8). The Bible teaches that we are reconciled to God the Father only by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ His Son...

Romans 5:9-10, “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Christ died, He was buried, and He arose from the dead after three days. This is the Gospel message. Notice that we are saved from GOD'S WRATH. The word “wrath” in Romans 5:9 is the Greek orge and means, “properly desire (as a reaching forth or excitement of the mind).” The word refers to God's stirred emotions, passionate violence, as He takes vengeance upon the wicked forever (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). There won't be anything casual about God's judgment against the wicked. It will be extremely terrifying.

How in the world can Pastor Wayne Cordeiro and his church claim in their church's CORE VALUES that non-Christian people are valuable to God and to God's Kingdom? If you are not a Christian, then God's judgment is already upon you. John 3:18 proclaims, “He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned (Greek: krino, DAMNED) already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” The unsaved need to be warned that the damnation of God is upon their head. It is wrong to mislead the unsaved into thinking that they are valuable to God's Kingdom. It's obvious to me that the NHCF is more concerned about increasing membership and donations than they are about truly winning the lost to Jesus Christ. It's all a bunch of phony-bologna religious garbage!

Non-Christians Have No Place In God's Kingdom

Jesus died, was buried and resurrected for our sins. This is the Biblical Gospel according to 1st Corinthians 15:1-4. Pastor Cordeiro's website falsely leads unsaved people to think everything's ok in their unbelief, but it's not. Psalms 7:11 warns that God is angry with the wicked every day. If you're not a Christian, you are God's enemy (James 4:4). You are alienated from God and cannot fellowship with God (1st Corinthians 2:14). Christ-rejecters are cursed (1st Corinthians 16:22).

Yet, the New Hope Christian Fellowship cult errantly tells people that it's ok not to be a Christian. It's not ok. Isaiah 48:22, “There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.”

They also foolishly teach Christ-rejecters that God still sees them as valuable in His eternal Kingdom. My friend, you will be burning in the fires and torments of the Lake of Fire if you die in your sins (Revelation 20:11-15). YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN! (John 3:5-7). You will burn in Hell for all eternity. You are not valuable to God if you spit upon the gift of His dear Son's sacrifice and death upon the cross. Psalms 50:22, “Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.” Wayne Cordeiro is a false prophet!!!

The New Hope Christian Fellowship Church Is Horribly Worldly

The so-called “church” is as worldly as can be, singing Marvin Gaye's Mercy, Mercy Me! Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) and secular music go hand-in-hand, along with perverted Bibles, corrupt doctrines and apostasy!

I listened to an MP3 sermon by Pastor Wayne Cordeiro titled, New World Order (here's their sermon page), in which he warns against inconsistencies in moral standards in the church. I couldn't believe what I was hearing, because the New Hope Christian Fellowship is as carnal, immature and worldly as can be. The women are all wearing pants. The music is worldly featuring thundering drums, screeching electric guitars and sensual inflections in the women's voices as they sing. One woman on May 15, 2012 sang, MERCY ME by Marvin Gaye (and sounded just like him).

There's no debating the talent in the church, but they're like Peter following from afar off. Actually, they're much worse than Peter because they have adopted a false Gospel of Lordship Salvation. If you think that you must depart from a sinful lifestyle to be saved, then you are NOT saved and are going straight to Hell when you die. Eternal life is a completely free gift, which is rooted solely in Christ's righteousness. I'm tired of woefully ignorant ministers corrupting the Gospel message in a clever attempt to force people to live right.

What happens is that people cannot grasp the notion that someone can be a born-again believer and still continue in a sinful lifestyle (see the life of Lot), so they change the Gospel in the Bible to cater to their limited, feeble, understanding. As a consequence they lead people into damnation in Hell. What you need to do is LEAVE THE GOSPEL ALONE and let God do His job! Our part in salvation is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:30-31). Whatever changes need to be made in a person's life, God will attend to that. A changed life is the FRUIT of genuine repentance (James 2:18-21), and not a part of the ROOT of saving faith (Romans 4:5-6).

Cordeiro has international influence via numerous ecumenical books he has authored (about a dozen), and via over 108 apostate churches. Their ministry is a Foursquare Gospel Church, which says it all. Foursquare churches are Charismatic, where women preachers, speaking-in-tongues and worldly music are extremely popular. I listened to a sermon on their website (May 15, 2012) and Cordeiro's sister was acting like a total fool, boisterous and unladylike. Feminism is very commonplace in Charismatic churches like the Foursquare Gospel Church. Hawaii is a moral hellhole.

Women dress like whores. Sadly, women wear slacks and pants in the New Hope Christian Fellowship. 1st Timothy 2:9 is still in the Bible and teaches for ladies to dress in modest apparel. Women who dress suggestively (and pants are suggestive) will give account to God for causing lust and lasciviousness, which wars against men's souls (1st Peter 2:11). They use the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible, which is extremely corrupt. Only the King James Bible can be trusted.

Here's some information on Pastor Cordeiro from their ministry's website...

Wayne Cordeiro is the founding pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Honolulu, Hawaii with over 14,500 in weekend attendance. New Hope is also listed as one of the top ten most innovative churches in America with Outreach Magazine listing them as one of the "top five churches to learn from." New Hope is known for redeeming the arts and technology. Over 3,000 attending services each week via the Internet. New Hope has seen over 73,000 first time decisions in Hawaii since its inception 27 years ago.

Wayne is a church planter at heart with over 108 churches planted in the Pacific Rim countries of the Philippines, Japan, Australia and Myanmar. Nationally, he has planted churches in Hawaii, California, Montana, Washington, and Nevada.

He has recently accepted the role as Chancellor over his alma mater, Eugene Bible College, now known as New Hope Christian College. NHCC is now part of a consortium of New Hope Christian Colleges with locations in Hawaii, Oregon, Myanmar, and Tokyo.

On their CORE VALUES page, there's no mention of how to be saved nor of the necessity to be saved. Hell is no where mentioned. Ecumenical churches stake great pains to avoid offending anyone, which is why New Hope is one of the fastest growing churches in America. People are coming to a Rock concert, they're not coming to hear the preaching of God's Word. They will tolerate a sermonette that doesn't mention judgment, hellfire or damnation. Most of the sermons given at New Hope Christian Fellowship church are psychology 101 instead of Biblical preaching. It is sad, but true, that most people will not attend church unless they feel like they're in a nightclub bar. Here's a short clip of the nightclub style music that they sing at the New Hope Christian Fellowship church (from the sermon titled, “Moving Ahead In Uncertain Times,” from March 22, 2012). Shame on any reprobate pastors who brings the nightclub into the Church.

I found out about Mr. Cordeiro through K LOVE (an apostate CCM radio station based in California) whose five counseling radio ministers recommend Cordeiro's books. K LOVE is owned by the Educational Media Foundation, whose staff ministers at K LOVE are recommending the books of Wayne Cordeiro...

What Our Pastors are Reading

... In "The Divine Mentor," pastor, author, chancellor and church planter Wayne Cordeiro takes us through very practical steps to help us get our prayer and Bible reading back on track. Busyness and intimidation may keep many of us from reading the Bible or even maintaining a consistent devotional time with God. But by using the simple, proven technique of Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer (S.O.A.P.), Wayne demonstrates how easy and enriching it can be. The Bible is filled with mentors that God has provided for us but we need to desire to get to know them.

SOURCE: What Our Pastors are Reading

K LOVE is pulling on the same rope as the Devil. The fact that they are recommending and promoting the ministry of Wayne Cordero speaks volumes. Here's what the New Hope Christian Fellowship website says on their website...

What is Our Purpose?
To present the Gospel of Jesus Christ in such a way that turns non-Christians into converts, converts into disciples, and disciples into mature, fruitful leaders who will in turn go into the world and reach others for Christ. At New Hope, we believe that fulfilling this purpose statement is dependent on four different areas of spiritual growth.

Communicating the Gospel in contemporary ways that reach the heart.

SOURCE: Purpose Statement - New Hope Oahu

BLASPHEMY!!! The Gospel is not able to be manipulated at our whim and presented “in such a way that turns non-Christians into converts.” The Gospel is that Jesus Christ DIED, was BURIED and ROSE from the dead three days later.

1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”

New Hope Christian Fellowship is an apostate religious group that fails to warn sinners of the judgment to come in Hell fire. Good luck finding the Gospel on their website. Their philosophy seems to be that surrendering to Christ is the way to Heaven. It's really sad and a shame that most so-called churches hide their Gospel for Christ (2nd Corinthians 4:3).

New Hope Christian Fellowship... Pants On Women, Rock Music, Apostasy!

Here's a video from their church that shows just how worldly they are. Ironically the sermon by Pastor Wayne Cordeiro is titled, “THE NEW MORALITY.” What a contradiction!!! The church is as worldly as can be, singing Marvin Gaye's Mercy, Mercy Me! This is just evil. The disco floor doesn't belong anywhere, let alone in a church. What heathens! The women are all wearing tight pants, singing like heathens, serving the Devil. SHAME ON MINISTER WAYNE CORDEIRO AND THE NEW HOPE CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP CHURCH.

They're not behaving like Christians. What a joke! What a sad joke! What a joke that their pastor is preaching on “the new morality” after some hussy singing such a worldly song as Marvin Gaye's “Mercy Me!” I wouldn't have believed it unless I had heard it. It's all about the love of money. People will do anything for money these days! The New Hope Christian Fellowship is the new wicked immorality in America.

Again, consider that one of the so-celled “CORE VALUES” of Wayne Cordeiro's ministry is...

“We Believe that every person, Christian and non-Christian alike, is valuable to God and to His Kingdom. Because people are eternally valuable to God...”

SOURCE: Core Values - New Hope Oahu

Pastor Cordeiro speaks about America being in a moral freefall, and he's correct, but the worldly music in his church is part of the immorality that is destroying our nation. Pastors need to teach and preach against women wearing pants. Deuteronomy 22:5 forbids women from wearing men's clothing (and vise versa). Nearly all feminists wear pants. We are living in a value-empty society, just as Cordeiro says. Pastor Wayne Cordeiro seems like a very nice and likable person (like Lucifer); however, it is utter heresy to diminish the difference between the saved and the unsaved.

The leadership and membership of the New Hope Christian Fellowship church are horribly worldly. They use the perverted NIV Bible. They have very low modesty standards for the ladies. Nearly all the women are wearing slacks and pants, et cetera. They've got a full drum set on stage, screeching guitars and women singing with sensual voices. It's the same worldliness found in the discos and sinful nightclubs.

Wayne Cordeiro even admits that everyone is going to be judged one day by God's Word, yet his church is so worldly. They don't even share the Gospel on their church's website. I'm still trying to find a sermon on their website that preaches the Gospel, but I haven't found one yet. The don't seem to be hungry to get people saved. Nor do they seem to really know what the Gospel is.

The Gospel
(Salvation Is By Grace Through Faith Plus Nothing)

Where The Burden Rests In Salvation
(Biblical salvation rests solely upon Jesus Christ)

I am not trying to be unkind. It's just that across the board everything is turning apostate in America. The world's music has no place in the church. K LOVE is the most popular Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) radio station, boasting of over 5,000,000 radio listeners (and about 250,000 listeners on the internet). K LOVE begs often for money and pays their CEO $463,420 a year. K LOVE also promotes Walt Disney World, where Jesus is crucified six times per week in a 17,000,000 exhibit which has been extremely popular and profitable over the past 5-years.

K LOVE promotes Walt Disney's apostate MAIN GATE CHURCH. It's the Church Of Christ, which requires water baptism for salvation, as well as literally ceasing from sinful bad habits in order to get to Heaven. Forsaking one's sinful bad habits is the FRUIT of genuine repentance, not a part of the ROOT of saving faith. It's called “The Main Gate Church,” Walt Disney's official church.

I enjoyed listening to Pastor Wayne Cordeiro recently speak about the new morality in America, defending Dan Cathy of Chick-Fill-A restaurant chain. Chicago's thug homosexual mayor, Rahm Emmanuel, threatened Cathy that if they tried to open a restaurant in Chicago it will be empty, because they're not welcomed. Talk about a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah! Chicago has gone to Hell!!! Yet as I listened to Pastor Cordeiro I couldn't help but think about the first of their core values which states that non-Christians are valuable in the Kingdom of God. Nothing could be further from the truth of God's Word. How can a Christ-rejecting unsaved person be valuable to God's Kingdom? It's ecumenical heathendom, trying to merge believers with unbelievers in the name of Jesus. It cannot be done Scripturally.

Thundering drums, screeching electric guitars and sensual women's vocals don't belong in the church. As the church becomes more worldly, so also is the world becoming more churchy. It's the truth brother! It's like a broken tooth and a foot out of joint to hear Pastor Cordeiro speaking about the moral problems in America, while his own church is saturated with worldliness. He's the pastor. Everything rises and falls on leadership. It's a shame! I'm not condemning anyone, I'm taking a Biblical stand for my Lord and Savior whom they claim to worship, but clearly do not with a perfect heart.

Ye Must Be Born Again! | You Need HIS Righteousness!
