Bound for Paradise Conference 2022

7th – 11th July (Thurs – Monday) 2022 we
meet at St Francis Centre, 50 Hillsborough Rd, Hillsborough, Auckland

Introduction

The ‘Our Neighbours’ Movement in NZ is committed to loving Muslims, and sharing the good news with them in a friendly, and respectful manner. The Islamic community in Auckland has grown significantly. The suburb that used to be known as the Bible belt, now has 4,681 resident Muslims from many nations. We don’t know what will happen in the future. Everything depends on our prayers, seeking God for a significant witness among them, and a change in our attitude as the Church of Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit wants us to reach out to ‘Our Neighbours’ now. All our churches in Aotearoa need to be aware of Islam and why it is growing in NZ. Christians need to be equipped, to know how to befriend them, and how to share the Injil (Gospel) in a culturally, and religiously appropriate way.

‘BOUND 4 PARADISE’ is a unique opportunity for us to share the love of Jesus with ‘Our Neighbours’. They believe in a sensuous paradise as a reward for their good works. The Bible teaches that the King of heaven (Paradise) is Jesus Christ. If ‘Our Neighbours’ know who ‘Isa’ is, they will pass from this life into the heaven where Jesus is the King.
Most of ‘Our Neighbours’ have never heard the Gospel. Who is going to share with them?
Will you join God’s work thru’ this unique opportunity? The training is practical, and by the end of the week you will have lovingly conversed with some of ‘Our Neighbours’ and made friendships.

Thought-provoking reflections:

‘There are times when God wants to use you in someone else’s life. It may not be pretty or comfortable, but they need to see Jesus’. Heidi Pitman

‘I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord. They will be my people, I will be their God!
