About the 2013 ASBE Conference

[Click for a print-ready version]

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.   Ephesians 4:4-6 NIV

Theme:             Men and Women: One in Christ

 Dates:              September 27 and 28, 2013


Location:           Crandall University, 333 Gorge Road, Moncton, New Brunswick

                       Take Exit 452 off the Trans-Canada highway and turn north on Gorge Road.

Verse:               Ephesians 4:4-6

These verses affirm that all followers of Christ are one. In Christ, the racial, class, and gender barriers that divide and separate people are overcome. 


We are all part of one body. 

We all receive the same Spirit.

We share the same hope, the same faith, and the same baptism.


According to Ephesians 4:11-13, our goal is to build up the body of Christ until we all reach unity, become mature, and attain “the full measure of the fullness of Christ.”



Lectures:           Dr. Philip B. Payne delivered two Plenary Lectures
