NEW DELHI: The Delhi Gospel Convention 2014 will be held at Janakpuri Mar Gregorios Orthodox Church known to be the Parumala of the North on August 2 & 3, 2014
The theme of the convention is Faith in action based on St. James 2:14-17 “What does it profit, my brethren, if a man says he has faith but has not works? Can his faith save him? If a brother or sister is ill-clad and in lack of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what does it profit? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead.”.
Fr. Timothy Thomas from the Diocese of North East America will be the keynote speaker for the convention. The day one talk will be based on 2 Timothy 3:1-5 and day 2 will be based on 1 Corinthians 15:58.
