Add to Calendar

Join us for four days of worship music, Bible teaching, fellowship, and prayer.

The Bible makes clear that a person can know for certain that he or she is a child of God. The topic of this year's 2020 Bible Conference, “The Assurance of Salvation,” is The Doctrine of Assurance. Each day this week, Sunday through Wednesday, we will have four excellent speakers to address this topic from a variety of perspectives, bringing messages of hope and salvation.

We originally planned to host the conference live in our worship center. However, due to the recent upswing in COVID 19 cases and hospitalizations in our area, our pastors believe it wise to make the conference an online event.

The conference opening, during our regular Sunday morning worship service time, and Sunday school will be on campus as well as online. Be sure to join us via streaming access each morning and each evening, Monday through Wednesday.
