God has determined the church to be a pillar and foundation of the truth (1. Timothy 3:15). This truth is Jesus Christ and His gospel, which is why Jesus says: "For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world— to bear witness to the truth.“ (John 18:37)

But when our culture declares that there is no absolute truth, how can the church support the truth of God like a pillar and stand firm like a foundation?  What are the characteristics it needs to have in order to fulfill this task?  And how can the lives of individual Christians bear witness to the unending truth of the gospel? Join us October 26-29 as we study these truth at the 2017 Eckstein conference. Welcome!
