Our purpose is to inform, train and help Christian believers defend Christianity’s basic truth claims and to express their faith to people of their culture in a way that is accurate, appealing and credible. Along with authentic worship times, you will also be able to attend challenging Breakout Sessions that will augment these main topics.
