Official Website of the Minnesota State Conference of the Churches of God
Our purpose is to co-ordinate and assist the members of the conference in worship, training, edification and evangelism.
One way this is accomplished is through the gathering of our members for conferences. The vision of a place for our members to meet was realized with the establishment of the Long Lake Bible Camp. Twice a year we gather together to worship together, learn together and join together making lifelong friendships.
We also conduct summer camps to teach the youth of today the message of the gospel. Two week long camps, one week for Jr Campers and one week for Sr campers, help youth with Biblical solutions to everyday Christian living. The unique island campground also provide opportunities for friendship and recreation with other Christian youth.
These conferences and camps bring many into a relationship with God and his son Jesus that last a lifetime. Through the people of the Minnesota State Conference’s mission department, many here in Minnesota and throughout the world have been influenced for Christ and his coming kingdom. This is the primary focus of our efforts here at the conference and in our lives.

You went to the classes. Listened to the messages. Sang the songs. And somewhere in the midst of it all, God reached in and tweaked something inside you. You heard Him.
Maybe it was like a lightning bolt to your heart. Maybe it was a tiny seed that He planted and is barely beginning to sprout. It could be a cloudy something that has been in your mind for months, only now it is crystal clear.
I like Caves. My family has been to six different caves on three different vacations.
What God says He will do, no matter how long it may seem to take from our vantage point. A great reassurance of that fact is found in these verses:
Once every four years, we find ourselves using phrases like “Lutz” and “triple Salchow” …during the Winter Olympics when we all become experts in sports we watch exactly once every four years.
Imagine if figure skating pairs got on the ice and each did their own routine. It would never work. Not only would they never medal, but they’d be laughed off the ice. Everyone knows, that’s not how paired figure skating works.
You likely have seen the recent first-ever picture taken of a black hole in space. Actually, the image looks a lot like a glowing donut approximately 55 million light years from earth - a nearly incomprehensible distance. It is a discovery that has generated considerable enthusiasm among the scientific community as they seek to know more about the origins of the universe.
