However, I have asked Dr. Chapell to speak to us on the great need for Christians to be actively pursuing holiness while avoiding a legalistic approach, to pursue holiness by grace, which happens to be the title of another of his books. The conference theme is Standing & Striving: a Faith that Transforms. Come and enjoy three keynote addresses on the dual truths of standing firm in the faith of what Jesus has accomplished for you and striving to apply that faith in a practical way leading to practical sanctification. You will no doubt recognize the language of Philippians 1:27 as the genesis of the conference theme.
If you are not familiar with Fellowship in the Gospel, it is a gospel-centered conference designed to minister specifically to the local churches of Michigan. This is the 3rd biannual conference which meets on the years in-between T4G. The dates are May 3-4, 2013. Early registration pricing is available until March 1st. You can register online at www.FG13.org.
If you've never attended, you should visit the website (www.FG13.org) and sample past conference keynote addresses or the many rich and helpful past break-out sessions. For instance, you could listen to:
- Pastor Josh Waltz (Preaching Pastor at Parker Hill Bible Fellowship in Colorado) who spoke in 2009 on Gospel-Centered Leadership OR
- Rico Tice (Associate Pastor at All Souls in England) who spoke in 2011 on Recovering the Gospel: the Ancient Message of Power & Hope.
