From Southwest PRC’s Evangelism Committee: The true church is under vicious assault in
these last days. Satan, having great wrath because he knows his time is short, is determined to
destroy the divine truth that the church loves, believes, confesses and lives. False teachers with
their damnable heresies are on every side. Pressures to sell the truth for the sake of unholy
alliances mount. Iniquity of the vilest sort is sanctioned and celebrated in society. What shall
the church do as she awaits the triumphant return of her head Christ Jesus? We are planning a
lecture by Rev. Brian Huizinga titled “Keeping the Sword Drawn: Our Calling as the Church
of the Militant Christ” to be held at Grace Community Church in Hudsonville, MI, on Friday
September 30, at 7:30 p.m. This lecture will address these issues, demonstrating the church’s
urgent calling to take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and keep it drawn.
We will also livestream this event.
