COMPEL History & Beliefs

History –

The COMPEL Conference began in January 2002, with the belief that the women of Siouxland needed to unite in our common belief in Jesus.  Spending a weekend celebrating our savior has supplied so many blessings to women throughout the region.

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died.  2 Cor. 5:14

We consider these beliefs non-negotiable…

Faith in the Holy Trinity
The Father – We believe in one living and true God, both holy and loving, eternal, unlimited in power, wisdom, goodness, the Creator and Preserver of all things.
The Son of God – We believe in Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
The Holy Spirit – He is the Administrator of grace to all mankind. He is ever present, assuring, preserving, guiding, and enabling the believer.

The Word of God

We believe that God’s Word is inspired and infallible. It is fully inerrant in their original manuscripts and superior to all human authority. You don’t fit the Bible in your life, you fit your life in the Bible. God’s Word has never failed man. It is a perfect road map that leads to eternal life with God.
