We want to get the power of God into our hands, to call it to us that it may work for us in promoting and furthering our kind of Christianity. We want still to be in charge, guiding the chariot through the religious sky in the direction we want it to go, shouting 'Glory to God,' but modestly accepting a share of the glory for ourselves in a nice inoffensive sort of way. We are calling on God to send fire on our altars, completely ignoring the fact that they are OUR altars and not God's."

Bible-believing Christians realize there is a great need for authentic revival across our land. This is in large part due to the way we do "church," yet postmodern cultural church movements are running full-throttle in error. Where will it all end?
There are some fundamentally sound churches still as far as the message of salvation goes, but most of those are spiritually dry. This is usually due to the fact that "the letter" of the Bible has become a text-book, rather than a way of life administered by the Spirit of God. All too often we have educated ourselves right out the back door of the truth that set us all free. For true spiritual renewal we do not need men of high degree or noble birth, but rather men of true humility who know God and believe His word, having been tested by His refining fire. We should seek neither fleshly emotional response nor signs and wonders, but rather authentic shaking of the heart and mind until we have been transformed from inside out by truly spiritual men and Spirit-filled preaching!
This conference will feature the word of God as it shows us the way to a church transformed. If we would be revived and maintain it, we MUST allow God to transform some of our thinking. We MUST allow the word of God to ring true, unencumbered by our traditions, likes, and dislikes.Evidence speaks loudly that we had better stop long enough to reexamine our ways according to the scriptures and abide by them.
