This unique conference focuses on the transforming and freeing power of Jesus Christ in the life of those who were once caught up in sexual sin or addiction, particularly in the LGBT lifestyle. Our identity is in Christ, not the sin that used to bind us, whatever that sin was. How exciting! The speakers for these events will be Stephen Black and Laura Leigh Stanlake from First Stone Ministries. Check out their website to learn more about their ministry.

Deception abounds in every area of life. The Christian’s responsibility is to know the Word of God and to compassionately speak truth into every area of life and society, dispelling deception and proclaiming the freedom found in Jesus, all to the glory of God.
Over the last couple of years we’ve seen that:
1. Most people would rather be in the majority, than be right.
2. Fear of death is only rivaled by the fear of societal approval.
3. It’s often easier to deceive someone than to convince them that they’ve been deceived.
With media and social media, education, entertainment, politics, and even parts of the church promoting, normalizing, and pushing acceptance of the LGBT lifestyle, one feels the pressure of wanting to be in the majority, fears societal disapproval, and then when confronted with the truth, finds it difficult to believe that they have been deceived in this area. As our nation’s children and young people are being inculcated with such deception and pressure, they are growing up not understanding anything different, unless they are being raised in a home that stands alone on the Bible, saying, “What God says is true, regardless of who (even if the church) denies it.” Even then, with the pressures from school, friends, and entertainment, many wonder, some waiver, and others fall to the deception which can so easily blind, leaving parents and grandparents bewildered and hurting.
Let us stand up with the strong message of truth, speaking to the youth of this nation, proclaiming the power of God, of cancelled sin, and the transforming power of Jesus Christ for any who believe on Him.This Freedom Realized Conference is meant to help you do just that. Come, listen to those who were snared in deception share their stories of redemption and transformation—ALL TO THE GLORY OF GOD!
