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. The alarming state of our nation, communities, and families can be tied to the state of Christianity. We believe that if our Churches can call our communities to return to the authority of God’s Word, we all will be blessed by God who 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 “Reteniendo 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.
Two Answers Conferences are coming to Yakima, Washington in 2014, both provided at no cost by Sacred Messengers. The main Answers Conference, open to everyone, will be at the Convention Center, at 10:00 AM, October 25th. There will be 1,500 seats between two rooms, one for English speaking and a concurrent one for Spanish, and we expect packed attendance. It will have five sessions taking us to about 6:30 PM.
The other event is the Christian Leaders Preview in May. The English Conference will be in the Convention Center’s South Ballroom, and the Spanish Conference will be at the First Baptist Church/ Communidad Cristiana two blocks West of the Convention Center. They will be covering the same topics.
The Christian Leaders’ preview, both English and Spanish sides, will be open to Pastoral staff, Bible Study and Sunday School teachers, board members, and leaders of Christian organizations. The Spanish meeting will be at 3:00 PM, May 17th. The English meeting will be at 7:00 PM, May 30th. Attendance is free, but requires pre-registration.
You’ll want to check out our Calendar pages under the dates of May 17th, May 30th, and October 25th for posters. Responsible Christians may reproduce the posters, 8 ½ by 11 inches, in color, for the purpose of promoting the events. They also may be reduced to half size, 5 ½ by 8 ½ inches, for bulletin inserts.
Watch for more information, coming soon. Meanwhile, join with Yakima Valley Christians on our email discussion group for the latest developments or contact us.
