• Truth in a Truthless Age: 2019 Southern Ontario Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Christianity is not simply one truth among many. Rather, Jesus says that He is the way, the truth, and the life, and that no one can know the Father except through Him (John 14:6). However, in this truty-denying age, Christians sometimes find it difficult to stand for the truth or to know how to present and defend it in a culture that denies its existence. On November 8–9, 2019, Ligonier Ministries hosted a conference in Southern Ontario. Tim Challies, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, and Burk Parsons addressed the importance of truth, the content of revealed truth, and … 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. Even angels hide their faces and cry, “Holy, holy, holy!” And yet, this holy God has redeemed a people for Himself and has chosen to dwell among them. On March 14–16, 2019, Ligonier Ministries hosted its thirty-second annual National Conference. Joel Beeke, Ligon Duncan, Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Pepe Mendoza, Sugel Michelén, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, Miguel Núñez, Burk Parsons, Michael Reeves, and Derek Thomas considered the holiness of God and what His holiness means for our lives.

  • Press On: 2018 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The Apostle Paul suffered rejection, beatings, imprisonment, and ultimately death as he fulfilled his ministry. Yet he did not become discouraged. Confident in the sufficiency of Christ, Paul found joy even in his trials. Writing from prison, he exhorted the Christians in Philippi to rejoice in Christ and to press on. On November 9–10, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted a regional conference in Lancaster, Pa. Drs. W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, and Stephen Nichols explored key lessons from Paul’s letter to the Philippians. View Resource

  • After Darkness, Light: 2018 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    Five hundred years ago, the church was in crisis. Church leaders were morally compromised, people were largely ignorant of the Scriptures, and man-made traditions were exalted over the Bible. In those days, God raised up the Protestant Reformers to call the church back to His Word and to the truth that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. Today, the church is again in need of reformation, which will only come as we remember the insights of the Reformers and apply them to the challenges of our day. On October 5–6, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted … View Resource

  • Defending the Faith: 2018 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In our post-Christian culture, people are ignorant of basic biblical concepts, and the Christian faith is facing increasing hostility from the government, the culture, and the academy. Our call in such a day is not to be fearful, but to be ready. As Peter tells us in 1 Peter 3:15–16, we are to be prepared to give an answer for the hope that is within us. On June 8-9, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted its West Coast Conference in Seattle. W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Stephen Nichols, Burk Parsons, Derek Thomas, and Ravi Zacharias considered the challenge of atheism, the truthfulness … View Resource

  • Awakening: 2018 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The fundamental problems facing our society are spiritual in nature. Unconverted people will produce a culture that is opposed to our Creator. Believers who have temporarily lost their zeal for Christ will not be effective ambassadors of Him. The only solution is for God to give us an awakening. On March 8-10, 2018, Ligonier Ministries hosted its 31st annual National Conference. Rosaria Butterfield, Kevin DeYoung, Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Tim Keesee, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, Miguel Núñez, Burk Parsons, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Derek Thomas spoke on awakening in Scripture and history, the means of awakening, the … View Resource

  • The Next 500 Years: 2017 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

  • The Gospel: 2016 West Coast Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In the face of cultural hostility, followers of Christ must not compromise the bold historical witness of the Christian faith. We stand not on a mere idea or a fanciful myth, but on historical events that testify to the fact that Jesus is Lord and Savior. On June 3-4, 2016, Ligonier Ministries hosted its West Coast Conference in Seattle, Washington. Joel Beeke, Douglas Bond, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Stephen Nichols, R.C. Sproul, Owen Strachan, and Derek Thomas considered the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Nathan W. Bingham and Tim Challies also taught on the Christian … 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

  • So Great a Salvation: 2015 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    As R.C. Sproul has said, the most serious problem we face as humans is that “God is holy and we are not.” During our 2015 Fall Conference at Reformation Bible College, we considered this problem and addressed the scope of the biblical gospel. Hosted in partnership with The Master’s Seminary, the conference featured Dr. John MacArthur as our special guest. View Resource

  • Pilgrims in Progress: 2015 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    As our culture becomes more secularized and hostile to the Christian faith, it’s easy for us to believe that we are the first generation to face this kind of world. However, church history shows us that this is not the case. People such as Augustine, the Puritans, and many others faced cultural collapse, persecution, and various events that threatened to shake their faith in the Lord. In each case, they turned to Scripture to be reminded of our heavenly citizenship. Today, the church must recover its understanding of pilgrimage, the notion that we are citizens not of this world but … 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

  • Inerrancy and Your Church: 2015 Winter Conference at Reformation Bible College Conference with Various Teachers

    During Dr. R.C. Sproul’s time in seminary and the early days of his ministry, he saw first hand Abraham Kuyper’s observation that biblical criticism has become biblical vandalism. Sadly, we are seeing such vandalism even in our evangelical churches today. During our 2015 Winter Conference at Reformation Bible College, Drs. Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, John MacArthur, Stephen Nichols, and R.C. Sproul, Jr. joined Dr. Sproul to address topics related to the crucial doctrine of inerrancy. Together, they looked at how the doctrine is grounded in the teaching of Christ Himself, how one should deal with so-called “biblical difficulties,” and other … View Resource

  • The Truth of the Cross: 2014 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    In a day when many people believe that the gospel is simply a message about how we can have a better life, a clear proclamation of the cross and what it accomplished is among our most pressing needs. The Apostle Paul tells us that he decided to know nothing among the people of God “except Jesus Christ and him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2). People need a consistent explanation of the cross of Christ and what it accomplished. Christ’s atoning work is the centerpiece of the gospel and the only solution for humanity’s estrangement from our Creator. On October 3-4, we … View Resource
