THE LOCAL CHURCH
HOPE OF THE WORLD
CONFERENCE 2010 SOUTH WA WALES ALES
APRIL 16th - 17th SELWYN SAMUEL CENT CENTRE TRE LLANE LLANELLI ELLI
The Local Church is the bride of Christ, the visible expression of the invisible God, which proclaims on earth His incredible work of Salvation and Grace. A Church of whichever denomination or expression is made up of her people, the Saints, and as Christ’s agents make known the manifold wisdom of God, reflecting God’s Glory upon the earth as mirrors, displaying His greatness and goodness, bringing out the God flavours and colours in this world as ‘salt and light’ so that people will praise this ‘Generous Father in Heaven’ (Matt 5). In the New Testament the apostle Paul states ‘From Galaxies to Governments, Principalities and Powers, all things in Heaven and Earth, for now and at all times, at the centre of all this - Christ rules the Church. The Church, you see, is not peripheral to the world the world is peripheral to the Church. The Church is Christ’s body in which He speaks and acts, by which He fills everything with His presence’. This is her true identity and Satans greatest fear is that the Church realises her true position and God given authority and rises up to fulfil Her courageous calling and destiny, freeing those in captivity. It is our honour and privilege to invite you to attend what will be two impacting days as we hear some of the finest speakers of our generation expounding and explaining the mysteries that are hidden in Christ and to experience worship that will bring us a taste and a glimpse of Heaven, skilfully led by the incredibly anointed Hillsong Church as well as our own dynamic 21CC worship team. Whether you are just an enquirer or are a more seasoned Christian, come along and discover the Wonder and the Grace, the Beauty and experience of God’s presence as we gather and respond in powerful, heartfelt Worship. We believe with all our heart that the Local Church is all this and so much more. The Local Church truly is God’s plan for the planet and the Hope of the World.
We look forward to seeing you there, don’t miss it! Geraint & Julia Jones, Senior Pastors
