Contending for the Truth
On June 26, 2015, in a decision not surprising, the Supreme Court of the United States essentially has chosen to change how marriage has been defined by God by a 5-4 ruling in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges. Now, homosexuals have a constitutionally-protected
How will this decision effect the religious liberties of Americans, and more specifically, pastors and churches? The answer is no one knows. That is why pastors and church leaders are invited to the beautiful Oaks Retreat Center in Greeneville, TN, for a one-of-a-kind event.
The “Contending for the Truth in a World of Shifting Values” Conference will equip pastors and church leaders with the tools needed to be fully protected in their beliefs regarding God’s definition of marriage. The conference will present the historical position of Free Will Baptists on marriage and sexuality, how to survive culture when Christian character and the world collide, effective ways of living a life of faith in an increasingly hostile culture, practical tools for ministering in a changing sexual landscape, the urgent need for bridging the gap between the Millennial generation and biblical truth, and how to protect your church in an era of sexual confusion.
Featuring prominent speakers from throughout the country, this conference will provide seminars, a wealth of information, and you’ll worship together while seeking the face of God for our nation. Best of all, the conference is FREE including lodging and meals!! There is no reason not to come.
We are also excited to announce that our associations own Dr. Eddie Moody will be the keynote speaker, as well as Sonny Thomas as Master of Ceremonies and Todd Parrish as Worship Leader.
Lodge rooms are available at the conference site, The Oaks Retreat Center. To register for the conference and/or secure lodging, call the office of Free Will Baptist Family Ministries at (423)639-9449.
