UNASHAMED

Even the Apostle Paul knew the temptation - the temptation to be ashamed of Jesus and his gospel. It’s easier to go with the flow, to speak of other matters, and to avoid the message that brings the stench of death to so many. It’s easy to grow weary in the face of opposition and to look for rest in the things that make us comfortable.

At this year’s FIEC National Conference we will encourage each other to throw off sin and it’s many clever distractions, and to fix our eyes only and always on Jesus. Plan now to come to conference, to be refreshed and encouraged to live courageously for our Lord and Saviour. 

Listen to Andrew Heard, our main speaker this year, talk about what we will be looking at in Hebrews at the conference.
