Christianity is not a faith that we make up as we go along. Rather, the Christian faith consists of objective truths revealed in Scripture and understood and articulated throughout the history of the church. Faithfulness to Christ demands that we know, articulate, and defend the essential doctrines of Christianity. On April 27, 2019, Ligonier Ministries hosted a conference in Atlanta. Anthony Carter, H.B. Charles Jr., David Hall, and Burk Parsons considered six of the core teachings of the Christian faith, helping us understand exactly what we believe as Christians and why these doctrines are so important.
Rev. Anthony J. Carter is lead pastor of East Point Church in East Point, Ga. He is author of several books, including Bloodwork: How the Blood of Christ Accomplishes Our Salvation and Running from Mercy: Jonah and the Surprising Story of God’s Unstoppable Grace and editor of Glory Road: The Journeys of 10 African-Americans into Reformed Christianity.
