Here I Stand

500 years ago Martin Luther courageously nailed the 95 theses to a door in Wittenberg, Germany and the world would never be the same.  He sparked a reformation that led to a renewal of authentic Christianity in his day.  He was was willing to stand for his faith against all odds.  He courageously stood up against religious and political authorities without compromising his faith. One story from church history about Luther suggests that he was once put on trial for what he believed and was asked to recant (to give up his beliefs), and he responded with these famous words

“I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. Amen.”

This year at IMPACT we want to see our students grow in their courage and conviction to stand for the truth of God’s Word.  We pray that it will bring spiritual renewal to their lives, their families, and our city.
