WHY WE GATHER
Secret Church is a unique, one-night event that is simulcast to over 50,000 participants around the world. Encouraged by our persecuted brothers and sisters’ example, we meet for over 6 hours for intense study of God's Word and passionate prayer for the persecuted.Learn More
THE IMAGE OF GOD IN HUMANITY
Who are you? Why were you created? Are you basically good, or has something gone wrong in each of us? Is life simply about deciding what will make you happy, or is there actually a greater purpose for your life?
In order to answer these and other foundational questions, we need to look outside ourselves. We need to embrace God’s design for our lives and understand what it means to be made in His image. And we need to consider what implications this has for our values, our thinking, our bodies, our emotions, our gender, our sexuality, etc.
That’s the purpose of Secret Church 21––to help us think through this issue, not only for ourselves but also for our relationships with others. We also need to think about the implications of this issue for the other 7 billion people on the planet who are made in God’s image, many of whom are struggling physically, emotionally, and, most importantly, spiritually. What does it mean to treat them as those made in God’s image? Join us for Secret Church 21 as we think through the doctrine of humanity and what it means to be made in God’s image.
