• Overcoming the World: 2014 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    As has been true in every generation, the church today faces many challenges from the world. The intellectual and moral opposition that we face can seem overwhelming at times, which is why we need to remember that Christ has already overcome this opposition. By His life, death, and resurrection, our Savior has conquered our enemies, and by His Spirit He has granted us to share in the victory. The Lord, in His Spirit, comes alongside us to strengthen us for the battles we face. This strengthening occurs as we are grounded in His truth (John 17:17). The 27th … View Resource

  • Pastors Conference 2005 Conference with Various Teachers

Sproul, Mark Dever, and Derek Thomas call upon the leaders of the church to renew their commitment to being God-centered in all aspects of ministry.

  • Pilgrims in Progress: 2015 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    As our culture becomes more secularized and hostile to the Christian faith, it’s easy for us to believe that we are the first generation to face this kind of world. However, church history shows us that this is not the case. People such as Augustine, the Puritans, and many others faced cultural collapse, persecution, and various events that threatened to shake their faith in the Lord. In each case, they turned to Scripture to be reminded of our heavenly citizenship. Today, the church must recover its understanding of pilgrimage, the notion that we are citizens not of this world but … View Resource

  • Tough Questions Christians Face: 2010 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Christ has redeemed us to be a light that directs others to Him. Fulfilling this call requires us to be able to deal with the most difficult questions asked about the Christian faith.

  • We Would See Jesus: 2014 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    More than one pulpit has had the phrase, “Sir, we would see Jesus” posted where the preacher can see it as he proclaims the Word of God. It is a good reminder. One thing we learn from church history is that preachers must always fight the temptation to preach their opinions, current events, popular culture—anything but Christ and Him crucified. Today we are facing a dire need for the church to recapture the centrality of Christ in its preaching and life. From many pulpits people hear messages that do not emphasize the gospel, or they hear no gospel preached. This … View Resource
