The Mystery Revealed 14-18 Sep 2015
CTC 2015 brings Malaysia's first Biblical Theology Conference back with the topic 'The Mystery Revealed'!
CTC is a conference held over 4 nights in a central location, dedicated to helping busy Christians read the Bible better. Learning how to read the Bible with the unity of its message found in the fulfilment of Christ is vital for Christian ministry and the health of the local church.
CTC 2015's topic of 'The Mystery Revealed' promises to help all Christians with an important New Testament theme that relates to the End Times, Salvation and Jew-Gentile relations just to mention a few. It is a perfect topic for this conference dedicated to helping the church understand the Gospel it preaches, since the gospel itself contains both 'old' and 'new' elements like the Christ, or the Resurrection, all of which stand in continuity and discontinuity with the Old Testament.
