Conservative Christians came together with the resolve to stand for biblical values at the Truth & Liberty Coalition Conference over the weekend at Charis Bible College.
Featuring keynote speakers Andrew Wommack, Mario Murillo, Bishop E.W. Jackson, Pastor Duane Sheriff, and Richard Harris – along with members of Congress U.S. Reps. Lauren Boebert, and Doug Lamborn – the event drew more than 1,000 people Friday and Saturday.
Wommack, president of the Truth & Liberty Coalition, encouraged the Church to stand up for righteousness and become an influential force in culture and government.
According to Wommack, the United States is unique in its purpose due to its Christian heritage. It’s up to Christians to get involved in government, preserve those foundations, and stand boldly for righteousness and morality.
“If we that know the truth don’t stand up and begin to start speaking, who is going to do it?” asked Andrew Wommack in his opening session Friday evening.
Evangelist Mario Murillo said it is the duty of the Church to destroy wokeness. Passivity in the pulpit has allowed critical race theory, the LGBTQ agenda, and other corrosive leftist ideologies to influence ministry and take the focus off the life-changing power of the Gospel.
“I don’t care who you are in this room, you are now a wartime pastor,” said Murillo, challenging ministers to stand on the Word and become aggressive in their preaching. “Not a peacetime pastor, you’re a wartime pastor – start acting like one.”
Boebert, a Second Amendment advocate who has quickly become an influential conservative voice in Congress, spoke on defending our constitutional rights. The Rifle, Colorado, native has gone from being a concerned citizen, mom, and small business owner, to first-term Republican congresswoman because she simply wanted to get involved and make a difference.
To Boebert, there is a need for more Christian conservatives to participate in government.
“I need you to get involved at every local level,” said Boebert. “I need you speaking up – I need the world to hear your voice. You know the Word of God and you know there is power in your words.”
Bishop E.W. Jackson, founder of STAND: Staying True to America’s National Destiny, spoke on American exceptionalism. Attacking critical race theory, Jackson celebrated what makes our nation great.
“America is God’s gift to you, and you are God’s gift to America,” said Jackson to the conservative Christian audience.
With informative workshops and the opportunity to connect with conservative Christian organizations, the Truth & Liberty Coalition Conference offered attendees the chance to become equipped to turn their communities back to biblical and constitutional values.
The centerpiece of the conference was 9/11—a moving and inspirational commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. The dramatization depicting heroes of Sept. 11 was developed by Robert and Elizabeth Muren—creators of the patriotic In God We Trust musical and leaders of the Charis Bible College Film & Production School.
According to Richard Harris, executive director of the Truth & Liberty Coalition, “This conference was a great encouragement about the timeless power and the principles that have made America a blessed nation. Every speaker brought powerful insights and practical wisdom that will equip attendees to serve their communities, state, and nation effectively in these difficult times. Truth & Liberty is greatly honored to have the participation of so many accomplished leaders.”
