Secret Church 2020

WHAT IS SECRET CHURCH?

Secret Church is a unique, one-night event. Encouraged by our persecuted brothers and sisters’ example, we meet for over six hours for intense study of God's Word passionate prayer for the persecuted.

Unfortunately, no childcare is provided at this event. The $10 registration fee includes study guide as well as light snacks and drinks.

STUDY

We spend time diving deep into the Word of God to hear what He is speaking to us and to grow our dependence and hunger for Scripture.

PRAYER

We devote time in prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the Gospel.

ACTION

We respond to what we've heard by giving for the sake of the persecuted and the unreached around the world.

2020 TOPIC: GOD, GOVERNMENT, AND THE GOSPEL

"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 government 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 definitely 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.
