About the conference sponsor - Inverness Bible Fellowship:
Inverness Bible Fellowship formed in May 2004 as a fellowship of believers in the Lordship of Jesus Christ and is an outreach of Calvary Chapel Bible Fellowship in Temecula, California. Our supreme desire is to be conformed into His image through the study of and obedience to the Word of God by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the only true basis for Christian fellowship is His [agape] love, which is greater than any differences we possess and without which we have no right to claim ourselves Christians. Our simple vision is to make disciples [Mat 28:19&20].
According to a 2008 report by the Institute for Family Policy, the marriage rate in Europe has dropped 24% in the last 26 years, 20% of all European pregnancies end in abortion, and every 30 seconds a marriage ends in divorce. The report also claims an increasing number of seniors are suffering from depression and loneliness in old age due to divorce or the trend in the reduction of the marriage rate.
Britain's children drink more alcohol, face more pressure at school and feel less safe than anywhere else in Europe, according to a scathing 2008 report by the UK Children's Commissioners.
Results of a survey released in November 2008 by Bernardo's charity indicated that 54% of Britons poled think the country's children are beginning to behave like animals and many believe they are increasingly a danger to adults and other children.
Marriages and families are falling apart at an increasingly alarming rate. Could the bible hold the answers to our marriage and family problems? Join us in discovering God's design for love, marriage and family.
