The church today finds itself at a crossroads regarding the gift of prophecy, healthy ways it should function, and the values governing how it is practiced (1 Cor 12-14). Extending beyond the cessationist / continuationist debate, there are varied and conflicting thoughts within the evangelical, charismatic, pentecostal, and third-wave movements of the church as to what the biblical expression of prophecy should be in the twenty-first century context.
Because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy, prophetic ministry should reflect the mission, message, and ministry of Jesus (Rev 19:10, 1 Cor 12:3). All prophetic ministry should glorify Jesus and result in a greater intimacy and mission with Jesus (see 1 Tim 1:18-19). The gift of prophecy should flow out of love (1 Cor 13:2) and lead the church into increased desire to live a cross-shaped life, being more and more conformed to Jesus’ image (Rom. 8:29, Matt 7:21-23). We believe that as Jesus continues to build his church (Matt 16:18), He is refining the theology and praxis of spiritual gifts, especially prophecy, for his glory, our good, and the mission of His kingdom.
This conference seeks to bring together authoritative voices to help the church navigate through this Prophetic Reformation that centers on Jesus and living out a cross-shaped life.
