Spring Convocation 2023
April 28 @ 4:00 pm - April 30 @ 1:30 pm
Religious Liberty and Its Impact on Righteousness by Faith
We have been called to be champions of religious liberty and of the three angels’ messages. What is the intrinsic connection between righteousness by faith and religious liberty? Where does the Christian believer draw the line between obeying the laws of the land and obeying God? How do we navigate civil authority and the authority of God in our personal lives? What liberty issues are we as Seventh-day Adventists called to defend in light of the end-time message we have been given? Join us as we discuss these timely topics at our upcoming convocation.
