Breakout Session: A Mission Greater than Ourselves

Posted on Dec. 11, 2010

Family-integrated churches are wonderful, and assembling ourselves together with other believers is truly a blessing from God. But in the midst of these blessings, let us never fall into the trap of neglecting the Great Commission Christ gave to His church, to go into all the world, preaching the gospel, baptizing, and disciplining the nations. In this breakout session, Craig Houston spoke from Matthew 28:18-19, exhorting his audience to never to neglect the Great Commission, but instead to earnestly seek to do our part. The Word of God has transformed our lives. Are we passionate to see the lives of those around the world transformed also? Craig Houston gave three points of application on how we may fulfill the Great Commission.

1. We will never fulfill this mission without love. First we must love God with all our hearts and our neighbor as ourselves.
2. We must fervently pray to the Lord that he would send forth laborers to the harvest. (Luke 10:1-2)
3. We must be willing to suffer for the name of Christ. Do we expect other Christians around the world to suffer for Christ when we ourselves are not willing to do so?

Christ has given His church the Great Commission. It is a mission greater than ourselves because it is a mission about the glory of God. May the church obey Christ and faithfully fulfill it!

Keynote: The Tests of Conversion

Posted on Dec. 11, 2010

Building on Thursday’s keynote on the nature of conversion, Paul Washer addressed the topic of how we can know if we’ve been truly converted. Rather than relying on a past decision or comparing ourselves to others, we should look only to the reliable tests found in the Word of God. Turning to 1 John, a book written “that we may know that we have eternal life,” Paul Washer expounded on the first five tests that indicate if we are saved…

Keynote: Paganism in the Church

Posted on Dec. 11, 2010

Ever since the Garden of Eden, when God commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, the battle has raged between following God’s commands or man’s ideas.

Keynote: Union With the Head of the Church

Posted on Dec. 11, 2010

Jeff Pollard brought a key message on the Church’s relationship with Christ. The Church’s union with Christ is a greatly misunderstood and neglected doctrine in the church today. This is unfortunate because it is the foundation of our salvation and the source of our spiritual blessings. In this passionate and powerful message, Jeff Pollard explained the definition, nature, and importance of our union with Christ. This subject is very practical because it affects how we think about ourselves. Union with Christ is a transforming reality, and we cannot apply this doctrine to our life and remain unchanged. It is the very essence of Christianity…
