2001: God at the Centre

Posted : Fri, Nov 2, 2001 | In : 2001: God at the Centre


2001 ConferenceThe second God’s Glory Our Joy- Building Biblical Churches for the 21st Century conference was held on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th October 2001 in Chester.

Around 150 people came for all or part of the time, with inevitably, more on Saturday than on Friday.  The attendance did not match the quality of the papers; a fact which perhaps in itself shows the need for such a conference! However, those who were there enjoyed a spiritual feast.

The conference opened and closed with preaching, from Chris Rogers of Liverpool and John Marshall of Hemel Hempstead. Both encouraged us to faithfulness in these dark days. We are not to follow those who downgrade the place of the Word in its practical authority in belief and conduct. Nor are we to be discouraged by them, even if they are in our churches; but we must hold to the Lord in faith.

Nick Needham:

  • “Verbal inspiration was not dreamt up in 19th century Princeton, but was common currency in the 15th century. When men desert this belief, they cease to be evangelical.”
  • “We do not have a monopoly on theological enlightenment.”
  • Question from the floor- “Is it possible for someone today to have a brand new original thought from the Bible that changes something important?” Nick Needham- “No.”
