General Assembly 2019 Jakarta

Thu, 08 Aug - Mon, 12 Aug, 2019

General Theme for the Assembly

Key Challenges Facing the Global Reformed Church Today

Storming Seas represent the times we live and the challenges Christianity faces in our century. Four hundred years after our fellow believers had to face the challenges of their day and compose the Cannons of Dort, the contemporary global Reformed church must respond to three main challenges, two of these internal and one external: (1) the challenges of watered down theology and the loss of biblical content and commitment; (2) the challenges of distorted evangelicalism (pragmatism, subjectivism, post-ecclesiasticism, etc.); and (3) the challenges of a world whose loss of moorings has caused societal havoc, lifestyle issues and moral disruption (an upside down world, post-morality): gender issues, the new sexuality, etc. How can we present a gracious challenge and remedy to the hurting world in these areas?

Within this framework the specific themes will present and cover some of the following:
  • Recovery of sound biblical interpretation and preaching
  • The growth of Reformed theology in Asia, Africa and Latin America
  • The struggle for purity
  • Faithful biblical witness to the world (justice, peace, mercy)
  • Post-morality, Sexuality and gender issues (gender ideology, bioethics)
  • Reformed faithful witness in the context of business and government
