• 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

  • The Gospel: 2016 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In 2 Peter 1:16, the Apostle tells us that he and the other Apostles “did not follow cleverly devised myths” when they proclaimed “the power and coming” of Christ Jesus. Rather, the Apostles were “eyewitnesses of his majesty.” These men saw something take place in space and time that altered the course of human history. The incarnation, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus are not legendary events in a fictional tale. They are firm historical realities on which the Christian faith stands or falls. In the face of cultural hostility, followers of Christ must not compromise the bold historical … View Resource

  • He Is Holy: 2019 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    God is holy, and we’re not. In fact, He’s so holy, His unmediated presence is lethal.

  • 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
