The Church

The Pillar and Foundation of the Truth

The Essential Church: Elevating Our View of Christ’s Bride

The past year has brought the church of Jesus Christ face to face with its own legitimacy. Non-Christians have taken it upon themselves to decide whether the church is “essential” or not. We contend that no man has the right or authority to make that determination no matter the circumstances. This is a wake-up call to churches everywhere to re-examine their esteemed position as the bride of Christ, to re-ignite their devotion to worship, and to re-inspire their members to a high view of Christ’s Ekklesia, the gathered people of the Savior.

"I am writing these things to you so that... you may know how one ought to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, a pillar and buttress of the truth"

(1 Timothy 3:14–15)

Why Steadfast?

The Steadfast Bible Conference exists to encourage and strengthen the body of Christ to be
"stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard" - Colossians 1:23 (ESV).

  • A Warning and A Command

    We live in an age and culture that makes us want to question everything and not believe that truth is immovable. It's no wonder the Apostle Paul warned us, "Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable." (1 Corinthians 15:58)

  • "Beloved, Be ye STEADFAST in the doctrines of the gospel. Know what you know, and knowing, cling to it."

    Charles H. Spurgeon
    British 19th century "Prince of Preachers"

  • An Encouragement

    This word STEADFAST is crucial in Scriptures and occurs dozens of times, warning us and encouraging believers to be strong in our faith. We know as Christians we are called to be different from our culture, and it is by standing upon God's Word that we are strengthened.

  • "Continue STEADFAST and unmovable in the profession of [your] faith"

    George Whitefield
    Great American 18th Century Preacher


    "...Continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven."

    The Apostle Paul
    Colossians 1:23 (ESV)
