About the Event
The church today finds itself at a crossroads regarding the gift of prophecy, healthy ways it should function, and the values governing how it ispracticed (1 Cor 12-14). Extending beyond the cessationist / continuationist debate, there are varied and conflicting thoughts within theevangelical, charismatic, pentecostal, and third-wave movements of the church as to what the biblical expression of prophecy should be in thetwenty-first century context.
Because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, prophetic ministry should reflect the mission, message, and ministry of Jesus (Rev 19:10,1 Cor 12:3). All prophetic ministry should glorify Jesus and result in a greater intimacy and mission with Jesus (see 1 Tim 1:18-19). The gift ofprophecy should flow out of love (1 Cor 13:2) and lead the church into increased desire to live a cross-shaped life, being more and moreconformed to Jesus’ image (Rom. 8:29, Matt 7:21-23). We believe that as Jesus continues to build his church (Matt 16:18), He is refining thetheology and praxis of spiritual gifts, especially prophecy, for his glory, our good, and the mission of His kingdom.
This conference seeks to bring together authoritative voices to help the church navigate through this Prophetic Reformation that centers on Jesus and living out a cross-shaped life. Register here.
