• 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

  • 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

  • Evangelism According to Jesus: 2008 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

  • A Portrait of God: 2004 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Since the dawn of time, God has made His character known throughout creation. We see His power and wisdom in the created order.

In this series of lectures from Ligonier Ministries’ 2004 National Conference, J. Ligon Duncan III, Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul and R.C. Sproul Jr. discuss God’s glorious character. They explain how God’s attributes are defined according to Scripture and … View Resource

  • The Power and the Glory: 2003 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The Lord’s Prayer teaches us that the power and glory of God’s kingdom will endure forever. As Christians, we affirm that every aspect of life should bring glory to God, and in order to live in such a way, we must learn how to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. In Ligonier Ministries’ 2003 National Conference, “The Power and the Glory,” Sinclair Ferguson, John MacArthur, Albert Mohler, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Douglas Wilson provide sound Biblical teaching on the power and glory of God in the building of His kingdom. View Resource

  • War on the Word: 2002 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In Ligonier Ministries’ 2002 National Conference, “War on the Word,” Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Ken Jones, Erwin W. Lutzer, John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul, and R.C. Sproul Jr. examine the Word of God to help equip Christians to better defend and proclaim the holy Word of God. Demonstrating how the Word of God is under attack, they explain that the assault comes from both inside and outside the church, as those outside claim that Scripture is not the Word of God and those inside fail to handle the Word rightly.

  • Holiness: 2001 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    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

  • Upsetting the World: 2000 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    When the Gospel is presented boldly and without compromise it will always encounter opposition.

Sproul, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Douglas Wilson explain how to face a world that is hostile to the Gospel.

  • The End? Finding Hope in the Millennial Maze: 1999 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    As the years go by, frenzied excitement abounds in religious circles about the question of whether or not we are living in the last days. Apocalyptic scenarios for the new millennium have even made their way into secular fiction, movies, and television. Some of the confusion is understandable. Prophetic passages in Scripture are notoriously difficult to interpret and understand. The widespread misunderstanding of these passages has led to unbridled speculation and predictions about the details and dates surrounding the last days. Equipping ourselves with some reliable tools for understanding the biblical account of the end times can give … 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

  • Essential Truths of the Christian Faith: 1997 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    King Ahaz of Judah learned the hard way that a refusal to stand and confess the truths revealed by the Lord leads only to disaster. Today, many professing evangelicals are repeating Ahaz’s error, diminishing the importance of difficult but crucial doctrines. But if the church is going to crash the gates of hell, she must reaffirm and recommit herself to the essential truths of the Christian faith, as Alistair Begg, James Boice, Sinclair Ferguson, John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul, R.C. Sproul Jr., and others remind us in Ligonier Ministries’ 1997 National Conference, “Essential Truths of the Christian Faith.” View Resource

  • Defending the Faith in a Faithless World: 1995 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The apostle Peter lived in a faithless world. Most people didn’t know the Gospel. Many viciously attacked it. In this context Peter wrote, “Always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you” (I Peter 3:15).  Our world is like Peter’s. Knowledge of Christian truth fades; hostility toward the faith flourishes. And we, fearing ridicule and exclusion, too often remain silent about the hope within us.  No longer.  Ligonier Ministries’ 1995 National Conference, “Defending the Faith in a Faithless World,” prepares you to answer those who challenge God’s glorious … View Resource
