Secret Church Simulcast with David Platt

April 20, 2018 | Cults & Counterfeit Gospels

Location: Living Hope Bible Church

What is Secret Church?

Secret Church, with David Platt, is a version of "house church" where people meet periodically 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.

This will be Living Hope Bible Church's 3rd year to participate in the Secret Church Simulcast and this year we're excited to host the simulcast in our own church building!

Registration for this year's event is closed. For questions or to check event availability, please contact us.

This Year's Topic

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.
