• 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • Standing Firm: 2012 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The Apostle Paul exhorts us from the book of Romans, saying, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.” Christians are not to be cantankerous and difficult to get along with. Instead, we are to be people who seek harmony and relational peace whenever we can. That does not mean, however, that we compromise the truth for the sake of peace. Peace that is not grounded in God’s truth is no peace at all. There comes a time when we must draw a line in the sand, when we must stand firm for the foundational … 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. At the 2010 Pastors Conference, “Peace, Purity, and Unity in the Church,” Mark … 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.

In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2010 National Conference, Alistair Begg, Michael Horton, Steven J. Lawson, John MacArthur, Albert Mohler, Burk Parsons, R.C. Sproul, R.C.

  • Christless Christianity: 2010 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Much of what passes for Christianity in our day is really nothing more than self-help jargon and patriotism that has been baptized in a thin veneer of Christian-sounding language. This has led to anemic preaching, large but lifeless churches, and a Christian subculture that is ill-prepared to declare and defend the church of Jesus Christ. This series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2010 West Coast Conference featuring Michael Horton, Peter Jones, John MacArthur, and R.C. Sproul analyzes this problem and provides solutions to help the church put Christ back at the center. View Resource

  • 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. Christian leaders today must likewise be established in these biblical truths if the church would enjoy a new reformation. In Ligonier Ministries’ 2009 Ministry Leadership Conference, “Pillars of the Christian Faith,” Ligon Duncan, Sinclair Ferguson, … View Resource
