The sixth congress of the Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin, dedicated to the role of Christians in politics, will be held on February 18. The title of the convention is „How to gain power in the state?”.
The convention will provide an opportunity to discuss the responsibility of Christians for the politics of their state, and to consider whether Christians should seek to seize power.
Also on the agenda are such issues as the chances of Christians in Poland to play an important role in politics. Examples of this are coming to us from brotherly Ukraine.
The lectures will be given by Pawel Chojecki, pastor of the New Covenant Church in Lublin and co-founder of the Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin. Pawel Chojecki is also the founder and editor-in-chief of Internet TV channel, the monthly magazine „Go Against the Tide” and the publishing house „Pod Prąd”. Several years ago, he initiated the Megachurch project, an initiative to evangelize Poland based on four pillars: strong local churches, modern media, a Christian university and Christians in politics. In June 2022, he and the rector of the Irpin Bible Seminary, Pastor Dr. Igor Yaremchuk, decided to establish the Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin.
The Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin is the first project of its kind in our country. The main goal of the Institute is to integrate biblical Christians from Ukraine and Poland to carry out evangelistic and church projects together, as well as to exchange experiences of working for Jesus in the Ukrainian and Polish peoples, learn from each other and pray together for the future of our nations. The lectures are given by pastors, professors and Christian leaders from various evangelical churches and organizations.
The first lectures of the Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin were held on August 20, 2022. To date, five conventions of the Institute have taken place:
- „Discipline in the church”.
- „How to read and study the Bible independently?”
- „Reformation in Poland – lessons for contemporaries”.
- „Will our generation carry out the great missionary command of Jesus in Poland?”
- „Christianity and psychology. Pastoral care in the prevention of mental dysfunctions, diseases and disorders.”
