Timely Issues


All the world seems preoccupied with apocalyptic themes. From Hollywood movies featuring biblical characters to the news media's fascination with unexplained phenomenon to popular culture's romance with messianic deliverers and even political concerns over ecological disasters – everyone it seems is thinking about the end times.


Has the world's zeitgeist moved to apocalyptic concerns for a reason? Could it be merely coincidence that end times worries and biblical ideas of world destruction suddenly dominate the public consciousness? Or are these things a reflection of the Spirit preparing mankind for coming events?


Explore the answers in a tightly-focused, three-day event intended to equip the believer with a biblical basis for recognizing the last days. Our conference begins Thursday, October 9, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. and ends Saturday, October 11, at 3:00 p.m. Join us!

    About PTRC The Pre-Trib Research Center has over 200 members in association with its efforts. Most of the top prophecy scholars, authors, and popularizes are members of the Center and Study Group. The association of these prophecy experts, which have been facilitated by the Pre-Trib organization, has contributed to the inspiration of dozens of books, articles, conferences, and events that express and defend the literal interpretation of Bible prophecy and the pre-trib rapture. PTRC and the Study Group have worked to bring together veteran prophecy experts to share their knowledge and encouragement concerning these matters to a younger generation of students and advocates. In this way the torch is being passed to a new generation. PTRC wants to impact Pastors and individual Christians with the central role and importance that Bible prophecy, especially the any-moment possibility of the rapture, should play in the life of the church. Dr. LaHaye and PTRC stresses three practical implications that flow from the rapture teaching. The first implication of pretribulationism is that it leads to godly living in an unholy age. Next, this New Testament teaching promotes a strong emphasis upon evangelism of the lost. Finally, when believers come to understand this eternal perspective, it leads to a zeal for worldwide missions. This is why we at the PTRC are "looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus." (Titus 2:13)

    About Verse By Verse Ministry Verse by Verse Ministry International is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian ministry dedicated to promoting the preaching and teaching of God's word clearly and boldly, in its proper historical and theological context, and for the purposes God has ordained: to persuade the unbeliever of the truth of the Gospel and to equip the saints for the work of ministry. This ministry was founded in 2003 on a commitment to provide compelling, verse-by-verse teaching of God's word at no charge (2Cor 2:17), thus ensuring the whole counsel of God is proclaimed (Acts 20:27). We believe every Christian is commanded by New Testament scripture to become a life-long student of God's word, and this ministry is working to support that goal in our students' lives. While many online teaching ministries exist today, we believe our ministry is unique in what we teach and in how we teach. Verse By Verse Ministry teaches entire books of the Bible, and our studies explain carefully and clearly the text of scripture without being distracted by discussions of popular culture, politics, or denominational disputes.

    About Grace Bible Chapel Grace Bible Chapel is committed to the glory of God. Our mission is to "glorify God by knowing, applying, and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ." Our theme verse is Philippians 3:10 - "That I may know Him (Jesus Christ)..." We must know God so that we might love and follow Him, and then proclaim Him. Our worship services include God honoring music and prayer, but our main emphasis is on presenting the Word exegetically (verse-by-verse). We function as a family of believers, loving one another, seeking to help, encourage, and build up each others faith. We desire to proclaim Christ to all. The ministries at Grace Bible Chapel center around the foundation of God's Word with a desire to make followers of Jesus Christ, bring them to maturity, and to edify, encourage, and be a blessing to others. The church has sought to provide opportunities for service that are biblical, impacting, and important in the family of God's people. We serve together as a body - building up, caring for, praying for, and fellowshipping together. This requires a variety of ministries and the services and participation of many. We serve Jesus Christ by serving one another in His name.
