Mission of God Conference West 2022 Utopia: The Counterfeit Kingdom of God

Thank you for joining us at this year's conference!

The creator, redeemer God, in His complete Word, has declared the future of His Kingdom and rule, established by His will and power. God governs history, sustaining all things by His providence.

Devoid of such security, the non-believer must posit an entirely different worldview: Utopianism. This gospel-denying religious philosophy begins with the anarchistic rejection of God's Law-Word and proceeds to a re-making of man in his own image.

In the face of this, the Christian must not yield.

At this year's Mission of God conference, we seek to confront this dominant Utopian worldview with the truth of the Kingdom of God.
