Why the “Holding Fast the Faithful Word” Conference?
Sacred Messengers is excited to host Answers in Genesis, an organization dedicated to defending the authority of the Bible – giving a defense to those who ask a reason of the hope that is in us. We believe that if our Churches can call our communities to return to the authority of God’s Word, we will receive His blessing. God can do more for communities through personal relationships with Christ than can programs designed by man.
All of this has led us to our Answers Conference theme for Yakima Valley: “Holding fast the faithful word” from Titus 1:9. In Spanish it's “Aferrándose a la palabra fiel”. The context, Titus 1:7-9, points to a holy life and sound doctrine in order to “refute those who oppose.” If the Word of God is the authority for our new life in Christ, we not only know first hand of its trustworthiness, we should be able to take a stand and defend it before non-believers.
Both of the Christian Leaders Previews offered in May of this year were well received, the English Conference in the Convention Center’s South Ballroom and the Spanish Conference at the First Baptist Church/ Communidad Cristiana.
