CHRIST'S CALL FOR COURAGE IN A
WORLD OF CHAOS
The 11th-annual Building Tomorrow's Church conference (June 8-11) will be focused on the Lord's call for his disciples to FEAR NOT. This command is just as relevant for Christ's disciples today as when these words were first spoken nearly 2,000 years ago.
You don't have to search far to see how Christians are being persecuted in many ways and in many places around the world. Followers of Jesus Christ are insulted, ostracized, and attacked in almost every corner of the world—and even in the supposedly more "civilized" societies.

At BTC18, attendees will be encouraged by the preaching of God's Word to put away fear of man and to fear God and trust him. As our Lord told his disciples in Matthew 10:28-31,
"And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.."
