Imagine you live in a place where you were not free to study and discuss the Gospel openly. Where faith in Christ and belief in the teachings of the Bible were actually dangerous. How committed would you be to God's Word and sharing the Gospel where your beliefs could threaten your home, your family, even your life?
For millions of believers around the world, this imaginary place is an everyday reality. Theirs is a secret church, underground, hidden from the eyes of earthly authorities. But they are growing--often thriving--among those who would kill followers of Jesus Christ.
In the book Radical author David Platt talks about these small groups of Christ-followers who often meet for many hours in study, prayer and fellowship. “No sound system. No band. No guitar. No entertainment. No cushioned chairs. No heated or air-conditioned building. Nothing but the people of God and the Word of God. And strangely, that’s enough.”
Secret Church Is Coming Good Friday 2011
On Good Friday, April 22, David Platt will lead an intense time of Bible study--lasting approximately 6 hours--and a time of prayer for our persecuted brothers and sisters across the globe called “Secret Church”.
This simulcast, a challenge to study God’s Word and then share it with an unknowing world, will have you and your members digging deep into the Word, as we look at the cross, salvation and identify with the suffering of today’s persecuted church.
Don’t miss this unique opportunity for your church on Easter weekend . . . it will change your lives forever.
Secret Church. Shhh! Tell Everyone.
