2021 SUMMIT THEME
RELEVANCE WITHOUT COMPROMISE
We live in a broken world that is desperately seeking answers. Conversations about homosexuality, abortion, gender identity, cohabitation and atheism are becoming more common as people search for happiness in something other than God. It’s an opportune time for the church to step forward with a message of hope through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
But if the church’s message is to be heard, believers must be culturally sensitive and speak the language people understand. We must be relevant. Our means and methods must be familiar and relate well to those are trying to reach, or we’ll never influence them.
Our pursuit of relevance, however, should never be an excuse for compromise. As we speak to the issues of culture, we must be careful not to diminish the truths of God’s Word, nor can we make peace with the attitudes and immorality that have destroyed countless lives. People are searching for answers, and the answers we give must be true gospel and not merely the palatable parts.
Join us at this year’s summit, along with our keynote speaker, Dr. Michael Brown as we consider how relevance in 21st century culture can be achieved without compromising eternal values of God’s Word.
