2019 Annual Conference Theme

Proclaim Christ Reclaim Passion

Let us proclaim the One in whom we live and move and have our being, the One who stands at the center of our life together, Jesus the Christ. As we together proclaim Christ, may we reclaim passion for Him our Divine Teacher, Savior and Redeemer, and Lord and King. May we reclaim passion for our life together as gathered believers called Church of the Brethren and return to our first love as His bride, the church.

The proclamation of Christ brings a message of 'New Creation!' through a daily dying to self and living for Him who died for us. When God’s Spirit is at work in us, seeds are produced for ongoing transformation yielding fresh blossoms of passion for the Kingdom throughout our lives. May we each embrace Christ's transformation personally and open our spirits for how we are called to be transformed as His Church in today’s world.

2 Corinthian 5:17-18: So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation…
