  • 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

  • After Darkness, Light: 2015 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    From the revival in Judah under the reign of King Hezekiah (2 Chron. 29) to the Protestant Reformation that returned the church to the biblical gospel after its eclipse in the medieval era, we see that God is often pleased to shine His light when the darkness seems overwhelming. In every case, the faithful who lived in dark times called out for the Lord to revive them, and God answered their prayers by shining the light of His truth in this dark world. We live in a day of darkness, when the gospel and the church are under attack on … View Resource

  • Inerrancy and Your Church: 2015 Winter Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    During Dr. R.C. Sproul’s time in seminary and the early days of his ministry, he saw first hand Abraham Kuyper’s observation that biblical criticism has become biblical vandalism. Sadly, we are seeing such vandalism even in our evangelical churches today. During our 2015 Winter Conference at Reformation Bible College, Drs. Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, John MacArthur, Stephen Nichols, and R.C. Sproul, Jr. joined Dr. Sproul to address topics related to the crucial doctrine of inerrancy. Together, they looked at how the doctrine is grounded in the teaching of Christ Himself, how one should deal with so-called “biblical difficulties,” and other … View Resource

  • 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

  • Overcoming the World: 2014 West Coast 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 2014 Ligonier … View Resource

  • Creation & Re-Creation: 2013 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    Does God care about truth? Clearly, the answer is yes, for the words He speaks are truth itself (John 14:6). Is God concerned with goodness? How could he not be, since “no one is good except God alone”? (Mark 10:18). Does God love beauty? I suspect that most of us would answer, “yes,” but do we really believe it? Do we design worship with beauty in mind? Do we look at writing music, telling stories, and sculpting and painting as callings? How often do we think about promoting beauty in the culture and adorning all that we do with what … View Resource

  • No Compromise: 2013 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    We live in an age of compromise, but if we stand on the bedrock of God’s truth, we will not bend with the winds of relativism and faithlessness.” —R.C. Sproul Alistair Begg, Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, R.C. Sproul Jr., R.C. Sproul, Cal Thomas, and Ravi Zacharias considered the theme No Compromise: Standing for the Truth of God’s Word at our 2013 National Conference. Together they examined what the Bible says about standing firm for bedrock truths such as the resurrection of Christ, the trustworthiness of Scripture, God’s plan for the family, our need to show mercy, the importance of theology, … View Resource

  • Surprised by God: 2012 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    Too many of us have domesticated God. We have lost the ability to be amazed at His glory and to recognize who we are as humble creatures before our transcendent and holy Creator. We need to recapture a true sense of His glory that we might wonder at His power and character, that He might again surprise us by showing us that our thoughts are not His thoughts and that our ways are not His ways. In this series of messages Drs. George Grant, Michael Morales, Stephen Nichols, R.C. Sproul Jr. and R.C Sproul consider the theme Surprised by God … View Resource

  • The Christian Mind: 2012 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    One of the things most alarming about today’s culture is the way in which evangelicals are responding to attacks. Gone are the days, it seems at times, when believers devoted themselves to thinking deeply about the world in order to respond humbly to the church’s enemies without ceding any intellectual ground. Many evangelicals have bought into the idea that having one’s heart in the right place is all that matters - that a passion for Jesus and the life of the mind are mutually exclusive. What this view misses is that burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. We … View Resource

  • The Autobiography of God: 2011 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    The Bible speaks of how God deals with man. Because we are sinners, we are tempted to conclude that therefore it is about us. The truth is we exist for the sake of His story. The Bible is God’s autobiography—His Word telling us about who He is. In this 2011 Fall Conference, Voddie Baucham, George Grant, Michael Morales, R.C. Sproul Jr., and R.C. Sproul explore how the Bible tells us about who God is, not as a list of attributes, but as three persons in one being, working together in space and time. View Resource

  • Light & Heat: A Passion for the Holiness of God: 2011 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

Sproul Jr. as they examine important tenets of the faith, such as divine sovereignty, biblical worship, evangelism and missions, apologetics, and justification. Tim Challies and Susan Hunt provide optional sessions. View photos from the 2011 National Conference. View Resource

  • History, Truth, Faith - Pillars of Christian Orthodoxy: 2011 Ligonier Academy Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In a day when even people within the church try to redefine what it means to be Christian, it is important for us all to understand the importance of Christian orthodoxy - that body of content that is the authentic Christian religion. Orthodoxy rests on three pillars: history - the conviction that God is working out His purposes through His people; truth - the gospel of Jesus Christ delivered once and for all to the saints; and faith - the conviction that salvation is found only through trusting in Christ alone. Drs. Stephen Nichols, Carl Trueman, and R.C. Sproul focus … View Resource

    At Ligonier, we know that the work in the church is crucial to advancing God’s work in this world. Godly leaders are on the frontline of ministry. Pastoral responsibilities to clearly and effectively teach the gospel, lead the next generation, shepherd families, engage in missions and church planting, and serve wherever God directs are profound. So that we all might continue to be a blessing to the world and to our brothers and sisters in Christ, we must effectively live out the essential truths of the gospel.
