Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are often marginalized in evangelical churches. This is surprising, since Scripture teaches that in baptism we are united with Christ in his death and resurrection (Romans 6), and Jesus himself promised to give his flesh as bread for the life of the world (John 6).
Join us on Saturday 28 March 2015 for the Emmanuel Evangelical Church Conference, "For the Life of the World," and rediscover Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

Speaker: Peter Leithart
We're delighted to welcome the Revd Dr Peter Leithart as our speaker at this year's conference. Peter is President of the Theopolis Institute; adjunct Senior Fellow of Theology at New St Andrews College, Moscow, Idaho; and an ordained Minister in the Presbyterian Church in America.
At this year's conference, Peter will take us back to the Scriptures, and show us what the Bible really teaches about Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Could we be missing something very significant? Is it possible that rediscovering the Bible’s teaching about the sacraments could help us grow in personal godliness and Christian maturity, deepen the relationships within our churches, and strengthen our evangelistic witness to the world?
