Description

All ticket sales are final and non-refundable, even in the event of cancellation due to an event beyond our control.

Secret Church is an annual event, inspired by time spent with underground churches in Asia. During Secret Church, we meet for an extended time of Bible study and prayer for the persecuted and unreached around the world.

This year David Platt will be teaching on "God, Government, and the Gospel."

This Year's Topic

“Let every person be subject to the governing authorities” (Romans 13:1).

But what if you don’t agree with who those authorities are and how they are governing? How does this apply to different types of governments in different parts of the world? How does this command apply to the persecuted? In summary, how should Christians relate to government? Should we gladly submit to government, work to change government, or both, or neither? And what do Christians do when they disagree about political positions and personalities, cultural concerns and challenges?

Secret Church 20 will explore how the gospel transforms the way followers of Jesus relate to governing authorities in any nation for the glory of God in all nations. The purpose of this Secret Church is definitively not to advocate for a political position, party, or candidate in any particular country. The purpose of this Secret Church is to establish biblical foundations for understanding how the character of God and the content of the gospel totally transform the way Christians relate to government.

Along the way, we will examine how these biblical foundations help Bible-believing Christians promote love and preserve unity even when we disagree on policies and politics. Ultimately, we will encourage one another to live faithfully as citizens of heaven while we’re citizens on earth.
