The Cross &the Crescent

The Gospel & The Challenge of Islam

One of the greatest challenges for Christians at the dawn of the 21st century is the power and influence of Islam. As the world’s two great missionary religions, Christianity and Islam are often at odds with one another, and the tension can at times feel palpable. How are we as Christians to respond to the threat and challenge of this growing and energetic religion? What should be the Church’s reaction in light of the Lord’s Great Commission to make disciples of all men? What does the Apostle Paul mean when he reminds believers that “the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds”? Join us this year at Mere Anglicanism as we explore “The Cross and the Crescent: The Gospel and the Challenge of Islam.”

Originally founded by Anglican Christians who were concerned with the renewal of their own tradition in North America, Mere Anglicanism recognizes that we are at our best when we are in service to the whole Church of God. Our goal is to help clergy and lay leaders to develop a strong, robust, and intellectually satisfying faith, so that we can once again effectively speak to our culture in a way that deserves a hearing. 

Whatever your tradition, we warmly invite you to come and join us for this year’s conference as we learn how to respond to the challenge of Islam.



is this conference for me?

If you would like to be salt and light in this dark and fallen world, then this conference is for you! Mere Anglicanism is an event-oriented organization that provides the tools and resources to disciple, train, and educate lay and clergy leaders. We bring in thinkers and teachers who help people become informed, equipped leaders and who “take theology home with them.” While this conference was developed by Anglicans, we welcome and encourage all those who call Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior to attend.
