Northern Illinois Tres Dias

The Purpose and Intent of Tres Dias

The purpose and intent of Tres Dias is to provide a means whereby each of us can become increasingly equipped with the power of God's grace to be an effective servant in the body of Christ.

The Tres Dias is a method for spiritual renewal, proclaiming the truth and grace of Jesus Christ. This is effected through the power and work of the Holy Spirit.

As an instrument of renewal, Tres Dias is ONE of SEVERAL methods available to the church today to help RENEW the faith of believers. Tres Dias weekends are intended primarily for individuals who already know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and seek to be renewed and strengthened in their relationship with Christ and the people around them. tres Dias provides a particular method for living out our renewed faith, for spreading the Good News, and for being active servants in the work of God's kingdom.

Laypersons are encouraged to strengthen their partnership with their pastor, to be "extensions," building up the body of Christ. The focus of Tres Dias, therefore, is on the local church--your church and my church--to supplement what we learn in our own congregation, equipping us to help strengthen and renew the faith of other Christians and, through them, their family, congregation, and the environment in which they live, work, and play. Through the use of this method, we are encouraged to persevere and grow in our faith, to become an effective channel of God's love to others, and to strengthen a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

All activity during the Tres Dias weekend, including the talks and meditations, is undergirded with prayer and total dependence on God.
