• 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

  • Awakening: 2018 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

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 Christian Mind: 2012 National Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    One of the things most alarming about today’s culture is the way in which evangelicals are responding to attacks. Gone are the days, it seems at times, when believers devoted themselves to thinking deeply about the world in order to respond humbly to the church’s enemies without ceding any intellectual ground. Many evangelicals have bought into the idea that having one’s heart in the right place is all that matters - that a passion for Jesus and the life of the mind are mutually exclusive. What this view misses is that burning hearts are not nourished by empty heads. We … 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

  • Discovering the God of the Bible: 2017 Regional Conference Conference with Various Teachers

Robert Godfrey, Julius Kim, Stephen Nichols, and John MacArthur. Together they considered God’s mercy, God’s sovereignty, and other divine attributes. 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • The Invisible Hand: 2004 San Diego Conference Conference with Various Teachers

    The smallest details of history are of monumental importance to the plan of God.
