HBC Owensboro Missions Conference 2008

I am seriously considering attending this conference. It looks incredibly edifying and convicting!!!

Christian Imperialism
Extending the Kingdom of Christ through the Foolishness of the Cross
July 13-16, 2008

Dear Friends in Christ,

Only one nation has the right to enlarge its borders through imperialism. That nation is not a democracy, a republic or even an oligarchy. It's a monarchy, sovereignly ruled by His Majesty, King Jesus.

Many of the citizens of this “holy nation” (1 Pet. 2:9) are avid patriots who love their king's glory and long to see His domain extended. These followers of Jesus, whether goers or senders, are compassionate, courageous, zealous laborers who sacrifice to see “the kingdom of this world become the kingdom of their Lord” (Rev. 11:15). But they don't kill to advance His kingdom. They die. They don't cause suffering. They bring suffering upon themselves for spreading their faith. Furthermore, “The weapons of [their] warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:4). As joyful subjects of their Sovereign, they refuse to rest until “the whole earth is full of the knowledge of the Lord” (Isa. 11: 9). They have embraced this cause as their mission. Occasionally, they meet together at conferences to strategize, encourage each other and pray for greater effectiveness.

This year's missions conference, for serious–minded Christians high school age and above, is designed to ignite a greater passion for God's world–wide glory. Our theme is Christian Imperialism: Extending the Kingdom of Christ Through the Foolishness of the Cross. This subject will be developed through the preaching and teaching of four choice servants of the Lord from the Dominican Republic, England, Zambia and the Far East. For bios on these dear men, you may visit our speakers page.

In addition to twelve messages, there will be three interactive breakout sessions and four designated times of prayer. For pastors, there will also be a special lunch with the Islamic missiologist, Dr. Greg Livingstone.

The four pastors of Heritage Baptist Church extend to you a heartfelt and earnest invitation to join us for these days of teaching, preaching, prayer, worship and fellowship. Our deep longing is for the Lord to meet with us in an unusual, life–altering, church–transforming way. We hope that because of our coming together for this cause (the greatest of all causes) strongholds of the kingdom of darkness will literally be shaken. We are pleading with our sovereign Savior to call many of us to an all–out abandonment of worldliness as well as an all–out commitment to spreading the worldwide fame of His name. Please join us in that prayer! We would be deeply honored for the privilege of serving you during the four brief days of our conference.

For His Imperial Majesty,
Ted Keith Sam Joe
