National Conference 2019

Being a Christian - Living the Abundant Life


Christians in the past often used the expression ‘living below their privileges’ to describe the gap between what they knew and what they actually experienced and enjoyed. This remains a challenge for us today. In the face of much that could discourage us, we need to focus on the abundant encouragements found in the gospel.
 
This year the Bible expositions will trace some of the central privileges of the Christian set out in Romans 5 and 8, namely the blessings of justification, the wonder of God's adoption, and the assurance of God's irrevocable love. When these truths illumine our minds, touch our affections and evoke our thankful responses, we are beginning to realise that to be a Christian is to have an abundant life indeed.
 
The National Conference brings together members at all stages of their careers. There are separate seminar tracks for all healthcare professionals, junior doctors, nurses and student leaders (by invitation only).
