Our Reasonable Faith

by Chad Wells

That Coming Generations Would Know the Lord & His Work

"All that generation also were gathered to their fathers; and there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord, nor yet the work which He had done for Israel."

(Judges 2:10 NASB)

BATTLE CREEK, MI – Last year, my oldest son turned eighteen. The scope and scale of change we’ve experienced through his lifetime is mind boggling. Some of what his generation accepts as normative had not even occurred to us just 25 years ago.

With the world and all its voices constantly available at their fingertips, this generation has been exposed to ideas and ideologies that contradict the truth we hold dear.

How will our churches rise to the occasion? Will we intentionally convey the gospel to our children & their generation? Will we lovingly listen and answer the questions that arise from the influence of an increasingly hostile society? Will we prepare ourselves to give the reason for the hope we’ve found?

Our Reasonable Faith is a conference designed to equip people from the pew and the pastorate as we strive to see rising generations know the Lord and His work.

Join us as Tim McGrew equips us to engage in conversations without casualties while offering clear answers to the most common questions and objections to Christianity. Andy Giessman will offer his insights into ministry to those in the rising generation gleaned from experience on the university campus. Lydia McGrew will be pointing out the consistency of the gospels regarding the personality of Jesus. Tom McCuddy will encourage us to reconnect apologetics with discipleship to help believers be better prepared to engage those around us.

The South Central Baptist Association is blessed to once again partner with the Baptist State Convention of Michigan (BSCM) to offer this conference. Join us at Faith Baptist Church in Battle Creek from 8:30am to 4pm on Saturday, March 13th. A catered lunch will be provided which is worth the price of admission, just $15 if you pre-register. Come as a group expecting to be encouraged and equipped for such a time as this. Share the promotional video available on the registration page:

Anticipating that his ministry would soon come to a violent end, Paul writes to Timothy imploring him to faithfully pass on the truth by instructing reliable men who would also be able to do the same. We must also prayerfully and intentionally pass on the truth once and for all delivered to the saints that coming generations would know the Lord and His work.
