The purpose of this Festival is to proclaim the Hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
We live in turbulent times: the headlines scream about terrorism, war, Ebola, high unemployment, and so on. In the midst of it all, it can be hard to find hope, and that's ironic because "Hope" is the motto of Rhode Island (our home state).
Is there a lasting hope in the midst of all the turbulence?
We believe so! The Holy Scriptures declare "We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure" (Hebrews 6:19). What exactly is this "firm and secure" hope? It is the hope found in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Jesus has overcome the powers of sin, evil and death.
We desire for you to leave here today encouraged and inspired by His firm and secure hope!
The target audience is everyday people aged 16 - 66 that are looking for hope.
