SBC/Lifeway to Host NAR Faith-Healing Event at Ridgecrest Conference Center

Lifeway Christian Resources is hosting a New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) healing conference at its Southern Baptist property in North Carolina.

Lifeway is an entity owned by the Southern Baptist Convention that has a long history of prostituting itself for financial profit, and selling its soul to the highest financial bidder. This latest conference hosted by Lifeway’s Ridgecrest Conference Center in North Carolina is no exception.

The conference that will be hosted by the Southern Baptists is the “Kingdom Dominion 2020 Conference,” which is so-named after the Seven Mountain Mandate of the New Apostolic Reformation dominionists.

You can watch the ad for the prophecy-casting, faith-healing, tongue-speaking New Apostolic Reformation event below.

Speakers include Ben Fitzgerald of Bethel Church, who made news among discernment ministries recently for defending the use of prophetic Tarot cards.

Faith-healing and prophecy is promised in videos hosted on the conference website.

As you can see, the event is hosted at the Lifeway property.

The NAR and hyper-charismatic, Kenotic Gospel, secondary Baptism of the Holy Ghost, prosperity and healing teachings of this group violates the terms of service provided on the Ridgecrest website.

It says

LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center is a facility owned and operated by LifeWay Christian Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention and was created predominately for LifeWay and other Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) ministries. Thus, in addition to the above standards designed chiefly to protect the peace and enjoyment of all our guests, LifeWay also imposes religious standards based on the religious faith, purpose, and mission of the SBC, as reflected in the current Baptist Faith & Message (click here for statement of faith). Enforcing these religious standards helps to ensure that no activities or views expressed by or through groups using LifeWay’s facilities interfere with the ability of LifeWay, or this Conference Center to speak with one religious voice and promote one religious message consistent with the published views of the SBC. Accordingly, users or guests of this Conference Center facility must not engage in activities or publicly declare views while using the facility, which are contrary to these religious standards as determined by LifeWay.

Clearly, the NAR false-healing, false-prophecy conference is not in accordance with the Southern Baptist Faith and Message.

Does Lifeway and the SBC have no doctrinal standards at all?
