Terms and Conditions
Grace to You uses mass communications media to teach biblical truth with clarity and expand the sphere of John MacArthur’s Bible teaching ministry. Grace to You does not supplant the local church, but rather supports it by providing additional resources for those hungering for the truth of God’s Word. Media ministries can never substitute for involvement in a biblical church, group Bible study, or interaction with a teacher. Yet we sense the need for more in-depth resources, evidenced by the many Christians and Christian leaders worldwide who depend on our ministry to supplement their own study.

The following stipulations govern the content of gtycanada.org for questions of usage, copyright, and permissions:
Audio & Video
Our policy has always been to allow our listeners to copy our Bible-teaching audiocassettes and distribute them, as long as they don’t sell them. We’re still glad to extend that permission for cassette tapes. However, we have to adapt our policy in light of the heightened potential for abuse that comes with new technology.
Consequently, we prohibit the duplication or distribution of audio or video messages in any digital format (e.g., CDs, DVDs, MP3 or MP4 files, or Internet site postings) without prior written permission. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.
Since many of John MacArthur’s published materials are still in print and the publisher holds the duplication rights, we are unable to grant blanket copy permission.
Please contact us with each separate request for permissions regarding out-of-print materials or Grace to You publications. For resources still in print, please contact the respective publishers to get their permissions.
We are happy to allow you permission to use content from the Resources section of our website under the following guidelines.

The Grace to You website may contain links to other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other sites. We do not share any of the individual personal information you provide with any other site, linked or otherwise. However, we may share non-personal, aggregate data (i.e., how many visitors, page views, etc.) with other sites.
You may check with the sites to which we link to determine their individual privacy policies.
