Every church can and must become a church for its particular city, argues Tim Keller. All of which means that if we are to reach our city with the gospel of Christ we will need to establish churches and ministries that are committed to the city and that can also effectively engage the people of the city. The future of the city is therefore our theme because it has never been more important to discern all that is required to contextualise the never-changing gospel in a fast-changing city.
At this year’s 2020birmingham conference we will ask: what are the challenges and opportunities that face Birmingham over the next 20 years and what does the church need to do and be to take the gospel to the city? We will also consider what it means to serve the good of the city and what might it look like to not just live in the city but to love it now and in the future?
This year’s 2020conference will equip you and your church to better understand what lies ahead so that we can with humble confidence do effective ministry now and in the years ahead that both honours God and blesses the lives of all those who live in our great city.
‘From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.’ Acts 17:26-27
