• 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.

  • Pillars of the Christian Faith: 2009 Leadership Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    While always initiated and empowered by the work of the Holy Spirit, history tells us that the most powerful periods of church renewal and reformation follow the efforts of Christian leaders to teach the Word of God accurately. These gifted teachers held in common a solid grounding in the essential truths of the prophetic and apostolic writings, the foundation upon which Christ builds His church.

  • 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.

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.

  • Overcoming the Eclipse of God: 2006 Pastors Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Across America, the people of God strive to bring lost people the good news of Jesus Christ. As part of the Great Commission, this is commendable. But our attempts are often misguided as we inadvertently displace the Lord as the center of life in our drive to attract non-believers. Christ-centered preaching has been abandoned for magic formulas promising to deliver our best life now. Ordinary means of grace, like prayer and sacrament, are ignored in favor of marketing to specific audiences. Worship worthy of our majestic Creator is regularly exchanged for mere entertainment. In short, God’s glory has been eclipsed. … View Resource
