Conference Description

The visible church of Christ is a mess. Biblical views of sexuality are being swayed by the media everyday. The party spirit between believers is rampant, with each having their favorite celebrity pastor with his own study Bible and ministry. How Christians worship God is viewed as a menu with various choices to suit one’s taste. Thankfully, when we turn to the Word of God we learn that there is nothing new under the sun. This year’s West Coast Bible Conference takes up the themes in 1 Corinthians and seeks to exposit and apply them to our use today. God wants us to think long and hard not only about the problems we face, but the solutions offered in his Word. And that’s what this year’s conference intends to do.
