Secret Church is our version of "house church" where we meet periodically for an intense time of Bible study—lasting 6+ hours—including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel. This time is led by author and IMB President David Platt, and we will simulcast the event along with thousands of other Christians around the globe.
THIS YEARS TOPIC - SCRIPTURE AND AUTHORITY IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM
The Bible is the foundation for faith among followers of Christ in churches around the world. Yet many such Christians never think to ask why this is the case. After all . . .
- How did we get this holy book?
- Who decided what would and wouldn’t be included in it?
- How do we know it’s true? Are there any errors in it?
- Is it necessary? Is it sufficient? Is it authoritative for my life?
- How can I understand it?
Even as Christians ask and answer such pivotal questions, the culture around us asks even more pressing questions: Isn’t the Bible antiquated and outdated? Isn’t it chauvinistic and offensive? Isn’t it downright deceptive and ultimately dangerous?
During this Secret Church, we will explore answers to critical questions about the Bible in order to discern what place it should (or should not) have in the lives of Christians and the implications those answers have for our lives, our families, and our churches in the culture around us.
