  • To the Praise of His Glory Media Resource by

    A biblical view of salvation centers on God. Before the foundation of the world, He graciously chose a people for Himself while justly passing over others “to the praise of his glorious grace” (Eph. 1:3–6). This session will demonstrate why the doctrine of God forms the heart of our understanding of the gospel and the doctrines of grace. View Resource

  • I Lay Down My Life for the Sheep Media Resource by

This session will study the nature and extent of the atoning work of Christ. View Resource

  • Sighing for Beauty Media Resource by

    While Christians are on life’s pilgrimage, they sigh for the beauty of the eternal city. Augustine knew this well, and he looked forward to the joy of heaven.

In this session, Dr. Lawson describes how Christians are to live in this world—in the already of Christ’s work—while at the same time anticipating the future inheritance of the saints—the not yet.

  • God’s Word is Truth Media Resource by

    In the end, inerrancy is just one aspect of Scripture. The Bible is not simply inerrant; rather, it’s absolute truth. It’s our infallible rule for faith and life. In this session, Dr. Steven J. Lawson describes the beauty of Scripture, explains why inerrancy is a part of that beauty, and shows why the church—pastors included—must continue to stand on the truth of God’s Word. View Resource

  • The Difficulty Today Media Resource by , , , ,

    Believing in the inerrancy of Scripture can bring difficulties. Often, church members are unable to explain why they believe the Bible is inerrant to questioning non-Christians. Or, a pastor is unsure as to how to deal with a difficult passage. In addition, issues related to canon, manuscripts, and translations can be difficult for people to understand. This moderated session includes answers from several experienced pastors on how they’ve dealt with difficulties like these over the years. View Resource

  • A Puny God Media Resource by

    If the church has a low view of God, its light will be dim, and the darkness will not be pushed back. Today, our concept of God is often sentimental rather than biblically based. Many people embrace what has been called “moralistic therapeutic deism,” a view of God that says He exists to make us feel good about ourselves, and that He involves Himself in our lives only to affirm us and solve our problems. As long as we do not properly grasp the transcendent majesty and holiness of God, our light will not pierce the darkness. In this message, … View Resource
