Secret Church is a unique, one-night event. Encouraged by our persecuted brothers and sisters’ example, we meet for over 6 hours for intense study of God's Word and passionate prayer for the persecuted.
“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities” (Romans 13:1).
But what if you don’t agree with who those authorities are and how they are governing? How does this apply to different types of governments in different parts of the world? How does this command apply to the persecuted? In summary, how should Christians relate to government? Should we gladly submit to government, work to change government, or both, or neither? And what do Christians do when they disagree about political positions and personalities, cultural concerns and challenges?
Secret Church 20 will explore how the gospel transforms the way followers of Jesus relate to governing authorities in any nation for the glory of God in all nations. The purpose of this Secret Church is definitively not to advocate for a political position, party, or candidate in any particular country. The purpose of this Secret Church is to establish biblical foundations for understanding how the character of God and the content of the gospel totally transform the way Christians relate to government.
Along the way, we will examine how these biblical foundations help Bible-believing Christians promote love and preserve unity even when we disagree on policies and politics. Ultimately, we will encourage one another to live faithfully as citizens of heaven while we’re citizens on earth.
This is an amazing opportunity to join with other churches around the world for a time of study and prayer. We will take breaks in-between teaching for snacks and times of prayer for the persecuted church and our world.
This event is free, but you need to register to help provide us with a count for the night. We will provide light snacks, coffee, and a workbook to fill in throughout the teaching!
