Ahead of the coming Federal election, join us for Church And State Mackay: an evening of inspiration & teaching on the political opportunities & responsibilities of Christians. Learn more about the Biblical relationship between Church & government, and how we as believers can practically be salt & light in the public square. The evening includes presentations from Dave Pellowe, Bill Muehlenberg and Lyle Shelton, as well as time for Q&A and conversation over a cuppa afterwards.
” The Lord was amazed to see no one intervened…”
Many Scriptures like this in Isaiah 59:14-16 reveal the Church should not be apolitical. But what exactly does the Bible say about God’s people and politics? There is a pressing need for sound teaching on Biblical doctrines of government, church and family (specifically in relation to each other). Church And State is encouraging Christians in every electorate to strategically supply political support as Jesus would in our place – without blind loyalty to any politician or party, but guided by God’s Word.
25 million neighbours are waiting for us to boldly speak the Truth in love.
Dave Pellowe is the founder of the annual Church And State Summit and teaches how God’s people can be wise & influential politically without blind loyalty to any party, platform or politician. Each believer will learn how to be more effective as salt & light in the public square, maintaining the unity in the Body of Jesus Christ and with His Word as our guide.
