  • After Darkness, Light: 2018 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Five hundred years ago, the church was in crisis. Church leaders were morally compromised, people were largely ignorant of the Scriptures, and man-made traditions were exalted over the Bible. In those days, God raised up the Protestant Reformers to call the church back to His Word and to the truth that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. Today, the church is again in need of reformation, which will only come as we remember the insights of the Reformers and apply them to the challenges of our day. On October 5–6, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted … View Resource

  • Awakening: 2018 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

On March 8-10, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted its 31st annual National Conference. Rosaria Butterfield, Kevin DeYoung, Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Tim Keesee, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, Miguel Núñez, Burk Parsons, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Derek Thomas spoke on awakening in Scripture and history, the means of awakening, the … View Resource

  • The Best of 2003-2006 Pastors Conferences Conference with Various Teachers

Sproul, and Derek Thomas, is offered to help equip and embolden church leaders to exalt God’s glory in all aspects of ministry. View Resource

  • Chosen by God: 2005 St. Louis Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In Ephesians 1:11, the apostle Paul tells us that God works all things according to the counsel of His will and has predestined His people to receive an inheritance in Christ. However, though all Christians affirm God’s sovereignty and His work of predestination, different traditions disagree on the exact nature of God’s control over all things. In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2005 fall conference series in St. Louis, Missouri, Drs. R.C. Sproul and Derek Thomas explore the doctrine of predestination. Drawing from the teaching of sacred Scripture, they affirm and defend the Reformed doctrine of election, … View Resource

  • The Cross of Christ: 2006 Fall Conferences Conference with Various Teachers

    As the Good Shepherd, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ willingly laid down His life for the sake of His sheep (John 10:11). All of history revolves around this event, so we must strive to understand its significance. In this collection from the 2006 fall conference series, R.C. Sproul, along with Ligon Duncan, Derek Thomas, and Albert Mohler, examines Christ’s work on the cross and remind us that it is the centerpiece of God’s redemption. Beginning with man’s need for atonement, they discuss the identity of those Jesus came to save, look at how He ransoms us from God’s curse, … View Resource

  • Defending the Faith: 2018 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In our post-Christian culture, people are ignorant of basic biblical concepts, and the Christian faith is facing increasing hostility from the government, the culture, and the academy. Our call in such a day is not to be fearful, but to be ready. As Peter tells us in 1 Peter 3:15–16, we are to be prepared to give an answer for the hope that is within us. On June 8-9, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted its West Coast Conference in Seattle. W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Stephen Nichols, Burk Parsons, Derek Thomas, and Ravi Zacharias considered the challenge of atheism, the truthfulness … View Resource

  • The Gospel: 2016 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In 2 Peter 1:16, the Apostle tells us that he and the other Apostles “did not follow cleverly devised myths” when they proclaimed “the power and coming” of Christ Jesus. Rather, the Apostles were “eyewitnesses of his majesty.” These men saw something take place in space and time that altered the course of human history. The incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus are not legendary events in a fictional tale. They are firm historical realities on which the Christian faith stands or falls. In the face of cultural hostility, followers of Christ must not compromise the bold historical … View Resource

  • He Is Holy: 2019 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    God is holy, and we’re not. In fact, He’s so holy, His unmediated presence is lethal. Even angels hide their faces and cry, “Holy, holy, holy!” And yet, this holy God has redeemed a people for Himself and has chosen to dwell among them. On March 14–16, 2019, Ligonier Ministries hosted its thirty-second annual National Conference. Joel Beeke, Ligon Duncan, Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Pepe Mendoza, Sugel Michelén, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, Miguel Núñez, Burk Parsons, Michael Reeves, and Derek Thomas considered the holiness of God and what His holiness means for our lives.

  • The Holiness of God: 2009 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The holiness of God has been obscured, and, consequently, the church’s doctrine and ethics have been tarnished. Entertainment has replaced worship in many places, the Gospel is misunderstood and neglected, and the church assimilates itself to the culture instead of seeking to transform it through the preaching of God’s Word. If the church is to regain her saltiness, something must be done. Ligonier Ministries’ 2009 National Conference, The Holiness of God, looks at Scripture’s teaching on God’s holiness and how it affects our worship, doctrine, and personal walk with Christ. This expanded conference also features a mini-conference on the life … View Resource
