Update Feb 2019
I got a call from a man in Cheyenne who told me that Element now had a confessed gay man on staff? He said he believed they were now catering to the LGBT groups. ( do your own research on that? )
I looked into their stance on the LGBT ways and I found their pastor Jeff in a teary eyed speech about it:
In this speech he said that gays are welcome at the church but they do see marriage between only a man and a woman. He tap danced all around the topic trying to appease both sides saying it is a messy & complicated issue. Why Jeff???
Is abortion & murder complicated too?
How about adultery, stealing, profanity and drunken-ness?
Are they all complicated enough where you will also tap dance around them too Jeff? Why don't you just call them to repent of their sin?
He states Jesus died for gays and while indeed Christ shed his blood for all sins; Christ Himself told people to repent and sin no more!!! ( Christ saves us OUT of our sin not IN our sin )
By the fruit of their own words, they are indeed soft on this sin issue!
read on to see our witness experience we had there....
Update: July 1 2018
It was both sad and joyful when we stood outside with gospel signs here at Element church.
The sad part was:
Only 2 men came over to really talk about the Word of God and they admitted Element was sinful. ( they may never go back to Element as they heard the biblical truth I spoke and received it )
Some of their people/a pastor came out with coffee and donuts but they rejected talking about the Word of God and left fast? ( one looked like a gang guy with tattoos and had body piercings that was the pastor??? ) The people here seem void of God's full truth and holiness. We saw massive feminism / harlotry in ladies dress and the men were just as ill dressed. Several of the Element attendees swore at us ( F bombs ) and one man told me he can be worldly, sin, smoke and cuss a lot and Jesus died for all of that! Some flipped us off and another lady ( who emailed us and turned out to be a unbiblical feminist ) said "sinners need a place to go" and "church is where sinners go to hear the gospel" ( that is unbiblical as the TRUE body of Christ is for the training up of saints / Eph 5 not for gathering worldly sinners at all. In truth... sinners hear the gospel when saints go OUT to preach it.... ) Another man did not know the gospel but said he is still going to heaven and another man just laughed when I told him cloths are sin coverings / he mocked Gods Word!!
On the JOYOUS side:
Those 2 young men we spoke to for 45 minutes did get it all and they thanked us and said they were going to go deep in their bibles. If they do, they WONT be back to this worldly place! That is who we look for ...the true sheep who hear God's Word. ( element is full of false converts / goats I fear )
( no full names are used in the audios to protect peoples privacy )
read on to see Element tested to God's Word
We were traveling through Cheyenne on our mission trip and stopped at this religious body called Element Church to witness outside of it with signs. Since we love God's truth and our neighbor ( them ) we wanted to ask is this a biblical body? The answer is NO they are not. They are part of the North American Evangelical church denomination .... it is a sinful man made religious system NOT ordained by God at all! ( it has many of the common evangelical sins and false traditions / see the 10 point test below )
I also emailed Derek Mowery one of their pastors this testing and asked him to offer his biblical correction of me. Here is his reply PROVING he has nothing to offer biblically to correct this testing as a Titus 1 biblical elder should be able to do.
Note: they meet in a building they spent $2.2 million dollars just to remodel it to make it appeal to the world as a theater/ entertainment center. ( complete with smoke machines and lights to alter emotions/flesh and deceive people ) God's true people do no such things as God did away with special religious buildings! This is man made false religion, it is NOT of God's New Testament design at all.
1) They have a gospel that is not in full truth. I could not find the complete biblical gospel on their website ( but they do have a donate button ) They believe in essentials and non essential bible truth and this is a huge LIE as ALL of God's Word is to be followed as essential!
See this quote of their website:
Here at Element Church, we follow a practice that many people believe originated from the teaching of St. Augustine: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in all things, charity. All doctrinal matters are important. However, Essential Doctrines are worth dividing over, and generally Non-Essentials are not.
So this Augustine mindset they have, that you cant flippantly lose your salvation is a lie. Jesus said if you do not forgive a brother you wont be forgiven. He said deny me before men and I will deny you to the Father. Yes, its true sin separates us!
The issue is.. Element has NO clue what sin is it seems?? ( sin is more then drugs and alcohol ) The people we saw and talked to from this body were all worldly, carnal and quite unbiblical! ( several swore at us as we said and flipped us off! ) They do and keep MUCH sin here and they invite the world into worship God with them??? How can this be of a people that is holy and bought with Christ blood? This body is man made ( founded by Jeff Maness ) NOT of Christ, per their ill fruit.
Lastly on the gospel they say this:
God predestines all people to be saved;
There is no such scripture that teaches this idea of all predestined?
They do not teach or up hold a clear biblical gospel to eternal life. The bible says leave and repent of ALL sin but Element is built on people who LIVE in much sin, their leadership included!
See the biblical gospel here:
2) they are rooted in all the false ways of man made evangelicalism. Modern pastors, feminization, pagan holidays, worldliness, carnality fleshly entertainment, ritual Sunday services etc. See this 10 point testing that exposes them for paganism, feminism and you will see they have much in unbiblical ways here. https://www.dontperish.com/10-point-biblical-test.html
3) This is a worldly place where they have NOT left all sin at all. In fact they love the fallen carnal things of the world like gross harlot like dress, tattoos, body piercings, movies, sports and all the carnal world offers that true holy believers reject per Romans 12:2 and 1 John 2:15 and 1 Peter 1;15
Here is a picture of one of their "volunteers of the week" with his pagan college / NFL football belt.... how sad!
Note: I cant even show you pics of the harlot dressed ladies or the very immodest men there! See our articles on that here:
They mix the people of the world with the so called saints and it seems they do not hold people to biblical holiness but much worldliness is indeed allowed and practiced which is common in these false seeker places made of men!
It is a false convert haven....
4) Their website lists and promotes Jeff Maness as the founder/leader when; the true body of Christ is founded by God and it NEVER lifts up a man ( modern pastor role ) but Christ alone! ( the modern pastor role is a unbiblical sinful one ) See our teaching article here:
Note: Jeff M. is not a biblical elder for many reasons we have shown but he also promotes word of faith wolf-ettes like Lisa Bevere via FB:
He also took a sabbatical last year and in it he attended the Willow Creek Global leadership summit. It is a heretical nightmare of seeker false ways and Jeff paid to go be part of it all. See Willowcreek exposed here: http://bewareoffalse-unbiblicalteachers.blogspot.com/2017/08/global-leadership-summit-exposed.html
5) Maness sells the truth of God for money$$$$
and he teaches the UNBIBLICAL tithe for today to take people money. ( Jesus made a whip in John 2 for such things but Element is NOT of God ..... )
See our article on that here:
6) He pushes a false social feel good gospel and community works. Here is a quote from Jeff Maness website:
Our vision is to be a life-giving movement of people having such an impact that if we were gone our communities would miss us.Note: This is the flag ship statement of most seeker sinful social gospel false church systems... they cater to the world/community...so be warned !!!!!
7 ) Element uses loud fleshly instrumental music, lights and even SMOKE machines to woo people into emotional so called experiences with God. This is all a LIE to feed peoples flesh! It is NOT of God's true way for His NT body. See our article on that here: http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2014/04/music-and-biblical-worship.html
Here is a article on seeking the presence of God and its error:
Jesus said to love others yes, but He also said, the world will HATE His own in Matt 10 but Jeff Maness seeks to serve the community in a fleshly way so they are loved and would be missed??? ( children's play places, discount gas give aways etc vs the biblical gospel, a warning of hell and a call to holiness ) It is a unbiblical social gospel they preach here, NOT a biblical one.
Sadly our testing and first hand experience here shows this is just another seeker unbiblical place where a modern pastor is using the some of the bible and many things of the carnal world to scratch itchy ears in the pews to grow the numbers. There is no deep teaching of the biblical gospel, holiness and obedience to the whole counsel of God's Word. You cannot fill a building that way in our sinful culture but: you can fill up buildings with worldly false converts that you entertain weekly with fleshly offerings ( smoke machines) and you over look sin and avoid much of God's Word!
Element Church lacks the biblical gospel, it lacks holiness, it lacks obedience to God's full Word and its people showed us their real focus is.... to DEFEND sin/carnality, NOT flee from it!!!!
Jesus said FEW will find eternal life in Matt 7 and he warned MANY He will turn away as they are.... full of sin and disobedience. I fear that is so of Element Church and we want better for them all in love. We pray they repent and if so we will help them all we can.
