2015 Bible Conference

Goals of the Conference Were:

1. Providing a safe environment that encourages dialogue
2. Affirming what we stand for as a church in the 21st century
3. Suggesting a big picture, positive, non-apologetic re-visioning of Adventism and its unique mission to the world
4. Placing previous controversies in context for the younger generation of pastors
5. Providing a way forward for older ministers hurt by previous controversies
6. A SWOT analysis – what are our real strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats? What are we missing?

General Topic Areas Included:

1. The big picture of a world lost in sin, the Great Commission, and how Scripture still speaks to the Church
2. The big picture of the NT and Bible prophecy
3. The Apocalyptic Vision and Adventist Mission (is there room for Apocalyptic in today’s Adventist Church?)
4. The Investigative Judgement and the Gospel
5. The Rehabilitation of Ellen White (how inerrant does she have to be before she is accepted as a genuine prophet?)
6. How to handle the tension between being accepted by Evangelicalism and being unique
7. The growing challenge of spiritism and the occult
