what is impact?
The aim of Impact Bible Conference is drawn from Jesus’ words in John 17:17, “Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.” That is why, each year at Impact, you will find sound and gifted speakers, from all over the world, expositionally and exceptionally preaching that truth. You will also find new and old believers, also from all over the world, seeking to learn and live out that truth.
Since the first conference was held in 1998, the Lord has used this ministry in many ways. He continues to grow the conference and use it to make an impact on those who attend—from bringing many to salvation, to transforming lives from spiritual apathy to passion for His glory, to refocussing hearts and minds on His person and will. As a church, it is a consistent opportunity to joyfully serve other believers from many churches and locations.
So, come and join as at Impact as we worship the Lord through the hearing of His word, the singing of His praises and fellowship with one another.
