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.
Dr. David W. Hall is senior pastor of Midway Presbyterian Church in Powder Springs, Ga., where he has served since 2003. He is editor of the Calvin 500 series and author of several books, including The Arrogance of the Modern and The Genevan Reformation and the American Founding.
