Day 3 — 2013 National Conference
Today was the conclusion of our 2013 National Conference, No Compromise: Standing for the Truth of God’s Word. Over these three days, more than 5000 Christians came together and enjoyed fellowship, encouragement, prayer, worship, and the study of God’s Word. Our prayer is that we would all leave this conference encouraged to stand on the bedrock of God’s truth and not bend with the winds of relativism and faithlessness.
Below is a summary of today’s sessions and several highlights.
On This Rock from Sinclair Ferguson
Our final day began with Sinclair Ferguson presenting us with the supreme priority of the church in the purposes of Christ. According to His own sovereign and gracious will, our Lord has determined to build His church in a hostile world through the service of frail men. The church stands at the epicenter of the purposes of the Lord Jesus, therefore we are to be like our Lord and love and build His church.
Questions and Answers with Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, R.C. Sproul, Cal Thomas
Today’s questions ranged from addressing politics in the pulpit, revival, the call to ministry, tradition, assurance, and more.
No Compromise, No Surrender from R.C. Sproul
In conclusion to our 2013 National Conference, R.C. Sproul briefly surveyed the lives of several men who died a martyrs death as they stood firm for their confessions of Christ. There is a creed for which many like these died and for which we must never compromise—the song of the angels, the song of the martyrs, the song of the church: Jesus Ho Kurios (Jesus is Lord).
We need to be churches prepared to die to this world and in this world… —Sinclair Ferguson #lmnc— Ligonier Ministries (@Ligonier) February 23, 2013

Over 40 Years of Ministry
A Testimony of Grace
From 1971 to the present day, R.C. Sproul and Ligonier have experienced more than 40 years of ministry. In a short video timeline that we first showed yesterday at the conference, we traced this testimony of God’s grace.
Save the Date
