WHAT IS SECRET CHURCH?
When we think of “church” in America, we think of going to meet at a building, singing, praying and hearing a message from a pastor or teacher. But in many places around the world, “church” meets in a home, an apartment, and sometimes even in secret. Many times there are just a few believers who know and follow Christ. These small groups of Christ-followers often meet for many hours in study, prayer, and fellowship. Sometimes they face great difficulties to meet together. In some places it may even be dangerous to gather as a church to worship, pray, and study the Word. So when they come together, they want to make the most of their time together.
Secret Church is our “house church” where we meet periodically for an intense time of Bible study—lasting 6+ hours—including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who have still not heard the gospel. This is not for the uncommitted or faint at heart. But if you desire to know God more deeply through His Word and know His church more fully around the world, then please join us for Secret Church.
Our prayer is that God will use this focused time of study and prayer to enrich our knowledge of His Word. We pray that we would also gain understanding of the state of His church and our brothers and sisters around the world who face many difficulties—and even persecution—as they follow Christ.
The objective of Secret Church is not just to come and learn for one night but to take what we’ve learned and pass it along to others. We also want to recognize the great need to pray and come alongside our brothers and sisters who live in places around the world where there is little to no gospel witness or where the gospel is met with resistance. We want to use what we’ve learned during this gathering to make disciples of Christ—both locally and globally.
THIS YEARS TOPIC
Churches around the world look to Scripture as the foundation for their faith. Yet many followers of Christ never think to ask why this is the case, leaving them vulnerable to skeptics who claim that Scripture is merely an outdated human invention full of errors. This book we call the Bible is vied by many in our culture as intolerant, chauvanistic, and ultimately dangerous.
In the face of such criticisms, and to strengthen our own faith, followers of Christ need to be able to answer questions such as …
- Is the Bible divine?
- Is the Bible true?
- Is the Bible clear?
- Is the Bible sufficient?
- Is the Bible good?
In this Secret Church study David Platt addresses these critical questions, questions that have implications for our lives, for our families, for our churches, and for our mission to the world. The church desperately needs to recover confidence in Scripture’s authority in the midst of a skeptical age.
