  • 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

  • Holiness: 2001 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Isaiah 6:1-7

    God is holy. People are unholy. Through God’s holy grace Christians are deemed holy because of the finished work of Christ. We are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, who labors daily to make us more holy. But until we are glorified, the presence of sin remains. Perhaps nothing highlights this more than the way we often respond to the holiness of God. His perfection can terrify we who have broken His law. Alistair Begg, Jerry Bridges, Sinclair Ferguson, Rosemary Jensen, John MacArthur, Al Mohler, R.C. Sproul, and R.C. Sproul Jr. join together to consider that which will occupy and delight … View Resource

  • The Holiness of God: 1999 Washington D.C. Conference Conference with R.C. Sproul

  • 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
