About the Conference

There has been a postmodern, leftist takeover within conservative Christianity.

Ungodly, socialist ideas are coming to prominence. These ideas include so-called social justice, intersectionality, critical race theory, and cultural Marxism. But faithful Christians everywhere are taking notice. This conference will bring together those who are fighting back.

We are connecting likeminded folks who understand the issues and are willing to stand against the tide of postmodern ideology that is flooding Christian churches. We don't have to let this hostile takeover go unchallenged. When we remain true to common sense, biblical Christianity, we will be a preserving force within our churches and nation.

The Battle Is Dire

Leading figures within mainstream Evangelical Christianity are showing themselves again and again to be untrustworthy as shepherds and guardians of the truth.

Christians Are Now Asking:

  • What can anyone do?

  • How can the church be protected?

  • How can the witness of the church be restored?

This conference is designed to bring hope.

There are biblical solutions. Together we will search the Scripture, work to understand the times we are in, and take a bold stand for truth over error.

Be part of the movement of Christians who will take a stand for biblical truth.

  • Get the Facts

  • Connect with Concerned Christians

  • Form the Movement

At This Conference You Will:

  • Learn what you can be doing today to fight the battle.

  • Find out how to protect your church.

  • Be equipped as part of the movement to restore the biblical witness of the church in America and the world.

Biblical truth is what we need. Get the training to fight this battle well.

Register for the Enemies Within The Church Conference today and spend an unforgettable day and a half with the type of Christians you have been wanting to meet.

You understand the times. Find out what faithful Christians can do together.

"I encourage you to support this endeavor and see it as a work of the Holy Spirit to awaken our spirit’s need for discernment and truth."
-Dr. Kevin Baird, Executive Director of The Christian Legacy Institute

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is hosting this conference?

The conference is being generously underwritten by Cornerstone World Outreach International, the church of Pastor Cary Gordon.
The event is created by Judd Saul.

Do the event creators subscribe to a specific faith statement?

We affirm the following statement of faith.

Tell me more about the scope of material the event covers.

Judd Saul and his team are searching out and exposing the ways in which anti-Christian ideologies have infiltrated Christian churches and organizations. We are addressing the bad actors on the world stage and the ideas that motivate them. This project affects all of Christendom. What we are exposing does not affect just one denomination. It affects all of them.

Why should people want to be involved?

The team is putting in the time and research to tell the story that needs to be told—the story that mainstream evangelicalism does not want revealed. All of our material will be well-substantiated.

As shown by our previous projects, "The Enemies Within" (2016), "Agenda: Grinding America Down" (2010), and others, this team has a history of delivering what we promise. You will be satisfied with what we do.

With such a strong title and claim for the event, how have people reacted so far?

The team has seen a great response from the grass-roots. The more people that notice something is going wrong in their church, the more people are getting involved.

What will this event accomplish?

Before there can be meaningful change, we must face the facts. We are going to name the names and tell the truth about where the American church went wrong. We will expose the groups that are taking covert money and enabling the spread of heresy throughout the church. But it is about more than that. This event will be a beacon of hope—a light in the darkness. It will call the church to get back to the Scriptures, to preach the Bible, and to stand up for biblical truth in a world of confusion.

If you succeed in your knock-down against the enemies within the church, what are you offering as a positive direction for Christians?

We are putting together a network of churches across America. We want to embolden Christians across the country to take a stand for truth and to work together to bring the true gospel to our nation. We will provide curriculum to use in homes and churches and a resource that lists safe churches nationwide that have not bowed down to postmodernism and its accompanying errors.

The conference and the film are two different ways we seek to contribute to a growing movement of discernment and biblical fidelity within the church. Coming ahead of the film, the conference will offer inside information about our ongoing investigative work. An event like this offers something a film does not: New and deeper personal connections with those who understand the battle and can help you find your place in it.

"This project will shake the western church to its core and bless (and upset) all the right people because that is exactly what the western church requires."
-Cary Gordon, Senior Pastor of Cornerstone World Outreach in Sioux City, Iowa

Statement of Faith

The following is a basic statement of faith affirmed by the creators of Enemies Within The Church (Judd Saul and Cary Gordon).

You may be considering how to help the project by spreading the word or by donating.

The project will expose the Neo-Marxist infiltration in religious organizations in the US. To that end, we have interviewed people from various denominations and organizations.

The project does not comment on which denominations are right or wrong about various long-standing, important theological topics. This is a project about Neo-Marxism in churches—a topic of concern to all of us.

When considering what kind of projects to support, it can be helpful to know where the contributors stand theologically.

This basic faith statement is affirmed by Judd Saul and Cary Gordon.

1. We believe in the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture in both the Old and New Testaments.

2. We believe in the one Triune God existing eternally in the three persons of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. We believe Jesus Christ to be the only begotten son of God, born of a virgin and currently sitting at the right hand of the Father.

4. We believe God created the first people, Adam and Eve, in His image; that they disobeyed God and incurred physical and spiritual death and so consequently all men are now born with a sin nature that separates them from God.

5. We believe Christ’s death on the cross was a substitutionary sacrifice for sin, and only those who believe on Him and repent of their sin will be justified and forgiven. Good works, including baptism, are not required pre-requisites for justification, but rather, the correct response to justification by grace through faith.

6. We believe in the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ and His ascension to heaven as well as His current position as High Priest and Advocate of believers.

7. We believe salvation is wholly a work of God whereby God through His gracious power draws a dead sinner unto himself and extends to him the unmerited gift of salvation.

8. We believe all who repent of their sin and place their faith in Christ are indwelled by the Holy Spirit who convicts of sin, illuminates the Scripture, and empowers for godly living, including Christian service and being a witness for the Gospel of Christ.

9. We believe in the glorious hope of the imminent, bodily, physical, personal return of Christ Jesus in the future.

10. We believe in the resurrection and judgement of the redeemed and unredeemed at the end of time. We believe in the hope for the righteous of being in the eternal presence of God in Heaven, and the eternal condemnation of the unrighteous separated from God in eternal Hell.

11. We believe the social justice movement ultimately promotes a substitute gospel using Neo-Marxist categories. We are in general agreement with the Dallas Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel.
