"How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God!" - 1 John 3:1

There are many verses in the Bible that speak of God as being our loving Father. While many of us as committed Christians understand this truth in our minds, we lack a genuine personal experience of His Fatherly love in our lives. God can seem distant and detached from our every day lives. He can seem to be silent in the midst of our troubles and our cries for His help. We long to touch Him and to be touched by Him in our hearts.

Not only do many of us not experience God as the loving Father that He truly is, we instead fear Him as a Judge and as a strict Master under which we serve as slaves rather than being in relationship to Him as sons and daughters.

“Living in the Abundance of the Father’s Love” is a conference that has been designed to bring God’s people into an experiential, transforming encounter with God’s Fatherly love. As a result, those in attendance will see their relationship to God transformed from that of being spiritual orphans to glorious sons and daughters! Encountering this unfailing love of the Father will release you from the barriers that have kept you from Him and the fulfillment of His desire for fruitfulness in your life.

"For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, `Abba, Father [or Pa Pa, Father].'" - Romans 8:15
