GOD’S WORD AND THIS CULTURAL MOMENT

We live in a secular world with a culture that has embraced and promotes a post-modern worldview. Yet the Bible calls us to be citizens of the Kingdom of God, and rely on the sufficiency of scripture for our worldview. How should we respond to a calling so antithetical to the culture around us?

The Apostle Paul reminds us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. The Church must respond by seeking a biblical worldview that can deconstruct the philosophies of this world and present the objective truths of Christianity as the only hope for humanity. Our beliefs must shape our actions and impact every square inch of of life, both privately and publicly. We are to declare the Lordship of Christ in all life.

Join us March 31 and April 1 at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church as we pursue Kingdom Come!
