What is Secret Church? It is a version of “house church” taught by David Platt where we meet with other believers around the world through a live simulcast, for an intense time of Bible study – lasting 6+ hours – including a time of prayer for our brothers and sisters across the globe who are facing persecution and for those who still have not heard the gospel.
When is it? Friday, April 20, at 6:00pm
What is this Year’s Topic? The topic for this year is Cults and Counterfeit Gospels
Where is it? Harpeth Baptist Church via live simulcast
The apostle Paul was astonished that some followers of Christ in his day were “turning to a different gospel,” and he pleaded with them not to be deceived by those who wanted to “distort the gospel of Christ.” These warnings given to the church in the first century are just as relevant today for the church in the 21st century.
For the good of our souls and for the sake of the church’s mission followers of Christ need to ask, “What false gospels are being taught today?” and “How can I recognize the true gospel among so many counterfeits?” Answering these questions will be the aim of Secret Church 2018, “Cults and Counterfeit Gospels.”
We will consider the claims of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons and other groups that claim to teach the truth. We will also explore more subtle distortions of the gospel, including prosperity teaching that is rampant across the church. In the end, our goal is to walk away from this Secret Church not only enabled to discern false gospels, but also equipped to share the true gospel with people around us and with peoples around the world.
What can we expect from the evening? During this fast-paced, intense study you can expect to learn how to better identify and combat false gospels, enjoy times of prayer and worship, munch on yummy snacks throughout the night, and grow closer to God and your brothers and sisters sitting next to you. Also, it is not mandatory to stay the entire evening.
