  • Conversion Media Resource by

    We find many people who join the church who are not believers. Instead of focusing on the need for conversion though, many become tolerant to the hypocrisy. In this message, Mark Dever provides biblical thoughts on conversion and looks at the steps to conversion, and explains how biblical conversion fits within our churches. He ends with a question and answer session with R.C. Sproul.  View Resource

  • Interview with Sinclair Ferguson and Chris Larson (June 2011) Media Resource by ,

    Chris Larson, president of Ligonier Ministries, recently sat down with Ligonier teaching fellow Dr. Sinclair Ferguson to discuss a variety of topics, including mentoring and leadership, corporate worship, the “new calvinism”, and sanctification. Questions: Who were some of those that invested in your life and made a difference? (00:56) When young people desire to serve in gospel ministry but do not have a relationship with a mentor, what happens? How does this apply to today’s church? (03:20) Does the absence of mentor relationships in the church contribute to the “guru-ism” seen today? (06:22) What situations in the contemporary … View Resource

  • The Last Things Media Resource by

    Many Christian leaders try to avoid teaching anything about the last things, or “eschatology,” but this element of theology is as important as any other. Christians must be taught by those called to lead that Jesus Christ has promised to come again, that he has promised to raise the bodies of the dead and to judge all mankind. The lake of fire awaits those who have rejected Christ, while a new heavens and earth awaits Christ’s people. Sinclair Ferguson explains that Christian leaders must defend these truths from all attacks. View Resource

  • The Church and Sacraments Media Resource by

    Some of the deepest and longest lasting divisions in the church are the result of disagreements about what the Bible teaches concerning the church, worship, and the sacraments. This raises one of the more serious difficulties that Christian leaders face because while acknowledging these differences, as Ligon Duncan explains, Christian leaders in the church remain responsible for teaching the truth.

  • Cosmic Treason Media Resource by

    Man did not remain in the state of righteousness in which he was created. He sinned against God and fell, becoming dead in sin and defiled in every faculty of soul and body. Most people today deny this fact, believing that man is by nature good. R.C. Sproul looks at how it is incumbent upon faithful Christian leaders therefore to teach the truth about the Fall and about the true nature and evil of sin. View Resource

  • Created in God’s Image Media Resource by

    According to John Calvin, knowledge of God and knowledge of ourselves are intimately connected. It is important, therefore, that Christian leaders in the church teach and defend what God has revealed about the origin and nature of man. We did not evolve from lower life forms, and our lives are not a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Ligon Duncan discusses that we are created in the image of God for His sovereign purposes. View Resource

  • The Holy Spirit Media Resource by

    With the rise of Pentecostalism and the charismatic movement in the twentieth century, the Holy Spirit is no longer the forgotten person of the Trinity. There is, however, great confusion among many church members about His person and work and gifts. Sinclair Ferguson explains that it is the responsibility of those called to lead the church to teach those who are entrusted to them about the Holy Spirit – the third Person of the Trinity.

  • Saved by Grace Media Resource by

    The Apostle Paul pronounced an anathema on any who would distort the gospel of Jesus Christ. This has not stopped the spread of false gospels, however. There is no more solemn responsibility given to Christian leaders in the church than to proclaim and defend the true gospel. Steven Lawson explains that Christian leaders must understand Christ’s work of atonement. They must understand the biblical teaching about justification, saving faith, and sanctification. With Paul, they must refuse to compromise. View Resource

  • Thy Word Is Truth Media Resource by

    The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are inspired by God; that is, they are “God-breathed.” Because it is the Word of God, the Scripture is the final, inerrant, authoritative norm for faith and practice. Since the Enlightenment, however, the authority of God’s Word has come under constant attack. Sinclair Ferguson explores how Christian leaders who are followers of Jesus Christ must hold fast to the inspiration, inerrancy, and authority of God’s Word. View Resource

  • The Word Became Flesh Media Resource by

    If we are to be saved, we must believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. But which Jesus? There are many false Christs, including the Christ of the Mormons, the Christ of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and others. Ligon Duncan explains that Christian leaders in the Church must proclaim the biblical Christ, the only begotten Son of God, who is very God and very man, yet one Christ, the only Mediator between God and man.
