The 76th annual convention of the American Council of Christian Churches begins next Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. Go here for more information and here for the brochure.
The annual convention plays an essential role in expressing the character and fulfilling the purposes of the ACCC:
The American Council of Christian Churches is a Fundamentalist multi-denominational organization whose purposes are to provide information, encouragement and assistance to Bible-believing churches, fellowships and individuals; to preserve our Christian heritage through exposure of, opposition to, and separation from doctrinal impurity and compromise in current religious trends and movements; to protect churches from religious and political restrictions, subtle or obvious, that would hinder their ministries for Christ; and to promote obedience to the inerrant Word of God.
Seven general sessions will address key important aspects of true, biblical Protestantism:
