Why is this Called Secret Church?
The idea behind Secret Church comes from time David Platt spent teaching and ministering among underground Asian house-churches. Due to hostility from the government, from the surrounding community, and even from their own family, many of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world are forced to gather in secret, sometimes at the risk of their lives. We will meet for over 4 hours of video based teaching.

Why So Much Teaching for One Day?
We realize that each Secret Church study contains too much biblical teaching to digest in one sitting. However, this deluge of teaching is meant to remind us of the hunger for God’s Word that exists among many underground churches around the world. With few opportunities to gather and little access to biblical teaching, our persecuted brothers and sisters may meet for eight to twelve hours at a time simply to sing, pray, and study God’s Word. This God-centered focus is a helpful corrective to the desire for entertainment that characterizes many church gatherings in the U.S.

Scripture and Authority in an Age of Skepticism

Churches around the world look to Scripture as the foundation for their faith. Yet many followers of Christ never think to ask why this is the case, leaving them vulnerable to skeptics who claim that Scripture is merely an outdated human invention full of errors. In our day, many consider the Bible to be intolerant, chauvinistic, and ultimately dangerous.

Pastor David Platt teaches Christians how to have confidence in the Scriptures as the Word of God. He addresses these critical questions, questions that have implications for our lives, for our families, for our churches, and for our mission to the world. The church desperately needs to recover confidence in Scripture’s authority in the midst of a skeptical age.
