  • 2007 Pastors Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    God has ordained the preaching of His Word, prayer, and the sacraments as the means by which He sanctifies people’s lives. There is no substitute for the Scriptures if we want to know and please God. Unfortunately, the church today is dethroning God and the power of His Gospel for alternatives and counterfeits. In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2007 Pastors Conference, Drs. R.C. Sproul, Joel Beeke, and Steven Lawson strive to remind pastors that preaching God’s Word faithfully ought to be their primary mission. This conference seeks to provide biblical guidance for overcoming the eclipse of God … View Resource

  • 2008 Pastors Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    We believe that God has ordained the preaching of His Word, prayer, and the sacraments as the means by which He sanctifies people’s lives. There is no substitute for the Scriptures if we want to know and please God, and this is especially true in our worship. Unfortunately, the church today is dethroning God and the power of His Gospel for alternatives and counterfeits. The result of using man-pleasing tactics rather than simply focusing on the preaching, reading, singing, and praying of God’s Word is that the knowledge of God’s glory is diminished, His people become spiritually malnourished, and the … 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

  • Amazing Love: 1998 Los Angeles Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In writing his first epistle to Timothy, Paul relied heavily on his understanding of God’s love. Echoing Christ’s teaching that the greatest commandment is love, he exhorted Timothy to focus on ‘love from a pure heart a good conscience and a sincere faith’ as the goal of his instruction. Man can hope to reach this goal only through the God who is love. Before the foundation of the world, God determined to create man in His own image, and to enter a loving relationship with him. Despite man’s rejection of God and His love, God remained faithful to His … 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

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

  • Chosen by God: 2001 Birmingham Conference Conference with R.C. Sproul

    Few Biblical doctrines provoke Christians to wrestle with reason, engage in heated debate, or hide their heads in the sand as much as predestination. We embrace the sovereign God as an ever-present, all-powerful, and all-knowing Provider and Protector. But we struggle to understand how the sovereignty of God works itself out in our salvation. If He predestines all things and chooses who will be saved, why pray or evangelize? And what about free will and our ability to make choices—such as inviting Jesus to come into our hearts or choosing one career over another? In Ligonier Ministries’ 2001 Birmingham … View Resource

  • Chosen by God: 2002 Colorado Springs Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Is ‘predestination’ a word you don’t like to hear? Few Biblical doctrines provoke more discussion among Christians than predestination. We embrace the sovereign God as an ever-present, all-powerful, and all-knowing Provider and Protector. Yet we struggle to understand how the sovereignty of God is worked out in our salvation and life. In Ligonier Ministries’ 2002 Colorado Springs conference, “Chosen by God,” R.C. Sproul and Ligon Duncan explore the doctrine of predestination, helping to clarify what the Bible teaches about this magnificent doctrine. View Resource

    In this series of messages from Ligonier Ministries’ 2003 Houston conference, “Chosen by God,” Drs. R.C. Sproul and J. Ligon Duncan III explain the biblical doctrine of election. Emphasizing God’s sovereignty, the depravity of man, God’s eternal plan, and the justness of God in election, they remind us that we are Christians only because of God’s good pleasure and not on account of anything else.

  • 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
