NWC Annual Meeting 2019

Do we still believe in the Biblical mandate to share the gospel with others through proclamation and personal words of witness? In theory, YES! In practice? Well, the answer may not be as definitive.

Yet, because we still believe it is true, the emphasis throughout the 2019 NWC Annual Meeting will be just this … bearing witness both personally and through our churches to the hope that is found in Jesus Christ and in Him alone. Come and be both encouraged and challenged!
