Fear and Anxiety

Anxiety is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental disorders. Today, medical practitioners are likely to diagnose anxiety from a range of symptoms that may once have simply been dismissed. Anxiety is often connected with depression, and can be experienced as a low level nervousness through to panic attacks which overwhelm the ability to function.

God through His Word provides answers to help people whose lives are impacted by fear and anxiety. At Renewal 2018, you'll learn how you can become an instrument of Christ, using His Word to bring hope and change to people suffering from fear and anxiety.
