Special Note to Pastors

We want local pastors and church leadership attending the Steadfast Conference!

Encouragement to You

One of the main purposes of STEADFAST is the encouragement of local pastors. We have set aside a special session reserved for registered pastors, elders, and their wives to better equip them to be steadfast in their local ministries. This time will include a special catered lunch and a Q&A with the speakers, along with a chance to obtain additional pastoral resources.

No other local forum exists in the Bakersfield area for like-minded pastors to strengthen one another in this way. We would encourage all local congregations to ensure their pastor is a part of this special event!

About 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).

  • Why "Steadfast"?

    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)
