2017 Missions Conference

We would like to welcome you to Broken Arrow Baptist Temple’s 2018 Missions Conference.  We desire all who attend this conference to receive a blessing from the preaching, the presentations, and the fellowship.  But beyond these five days, our hearts need an enduring burden to reach souls near and far from Broken Arrow, OK.

Earlier this summer Bro. Wayne Walley, veteran missionary to the Philippines, filled the pulpit at BABT for a Sunday.  In the evening service, Bro. Walley read II Corinthians 4:4, “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”  This passage is especially provoking: that the devil knows the power of the gospel and is intentionally blinding people.  Realizing it is God’s desire to use this local church to carry the light, we take our theme verse from this simple phrase in the sermon on the mount…

Ye are the light of the world… Matthew 5:14

Jesus did not preach “ye may become the light” or “ye could be the light”, He said “ye are the light”.  In accordance with John 1:8, we bear witness of God’s light.  The question then becomes, what kind of light are we?  A dim, flickering light…or…a bright, beacon of truth and hope?!

Pray for our 2018 Missions Conference that God might enable us to give more, and challenge us to do more to reach the world with the gospel.  We must not forget God the calling God has for each of us, and we must be sensitive to His leading that we may truly be A Light In Darkness!
