Labor Day Weekend: September 4 - 7, 2015
EvangeLife: Ambassadors for Christ
This year's conference theme is on evangelism. What does the bible say about sharing the good news and how do we share Christ to our friends, our families and to others who are in need? Pastor Charles Vedral from Father's Heart Ministries, will share God's Word and provide resources and practical examples on how to tell others about Christ. You can bring back these valuable insights and resources to your church and your community so that God can use you to spread His Word to others! Come and join us for a great time of learning, fellowship and hearing the Word of God.
2 Corinthians 5:17-20 (NIV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
