On Friday night, April 20th, Journey Church will be hosting Secret Church, a simulcast to help you grow deeper in your faith and greater in your awareness of how church happens around the world. 

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 twenty-first 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 18, “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.

This event will be an intensive time of study & fellowship, and it will be held in the cafe. Dinner will be served at 5:30, followed by a time of prayer, and then the video simulcast will begin.  The video simulcast will be an intense time of teaching by Pastor David Platt that will be approximately 6 hours long with breaks. This will be a GREAT time of learning and growth. (For more information about this event, visit http://www.radical.net/secret-church/)

Due to the commitment of this event, we will not have childcare, and the cost to cover materials and dinner is $20 per person.
