Fall Conference 2018: Focused


In a time when people are torn about truth, divisive about doctrine, and fickle about faith, there is a great need of coming back to a foundational understanding of what Biblical Adventism really is. Truth, doctrine, and faith all matter, so how do we understand them through the lens of today’s culture and context?

Do what appears to be strife and hypocrisy in the church nullify the other important elements, or are they a purifying process for the church and us personally? As we seek God together at GYCSE this week, He promises to re-create our hearts and lives to be “Focused” when all else is blurred.
~Pastor Wes Peppers

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily  ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,  looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Hebrews 12:1-2
