What You’ll Get




Conference Topics

To believe and proclaim that Jesus is Lord to acknowledge what Christians have always believed; that Jesus is not merely a prophet, a holy man, or a wise teacher, but God. The implications of this affects every aspect of our lives. If we honestly believe that Jesus is Lord then He, and He alone, must be the center of our lives. Hence, if we are to follow Him and truly be His disciples, then our lives must become one of subtraction, so that Jesus the Lord can increase and live His life in us.


Jesus reveals himself to humanity as the lover of our souls. Unfortunately, many people do not believe that God loves them this deeply or are simply afraid of intimacy and turn away from God. Whether it is in the Eucharist, at the cross, or in the silence of prayer, Jesus the Bridegroom calls each one of us His beloved and invites us not simply to think about His love, but to live each moment in the fullness of that love.


Each one of us is in desperate need of healing. Regardless of our social status, age, or occupation in life, the human heart can only be satisfied by the love of Jesus. Even though many of us know this intellectually, each one of us must ask the question, “Am I really coming to Jesus each day in my life as I really am?” If not, can we ever really hope to experience healing and enter in more deeply to the fullness of life that Jesus calls us to? Jesus alone is our healer, and to experience His healing presence in our lives, we must follow His invitation and come to Him, surrendering all of our wounds, fears, sins, etc. to Him.
