2014 National Conference Preview — Sinclair Ferguson

2 Min Read

Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson is professor of systematic theology at Redeemer Seminary, distinguished visiting professor of systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary, and former senior minister of the First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C. He also serves as a teaching fellow for Ligonier Ministries and is a visiting professor in the Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) program at the Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies. Dr. Ferguson has also written more than two dozen books, including The Holy Spirit, By Grace Alone, and In Christ Alone.

Here's a preview of what he'll be addressing at our 2014 National Conference in March:

This Is My Father's World

The old saying goes, "You don't polish brass on a sinking ship," and Christians today might be tempted to see the world as the sinking ship. In this session, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson will remind us that the world was made by our Father and belongs to our Father. He will remind us that the dominion mandate not only abides, but will be carried through, and that this ship will not sink.

God So Loved the World

God's work of redemption involves more than the salvation of a handful of souls. In this session, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson will explore the breadth of the promises of the gospel. He will explain how Scripture moves from the glorious truth of the redemption of our souls to the promise that all the elect from every tongue and tribe will be saved. This message will also look to the redemption of the groaning creation, reminding us that the end of the world is not destruction but re-creation.

Dr. Ferguson has spoken at many Ligonier conferences and you can find his past messages here. Below is his message from last year's National Conference where he affirmed the value and importance of not only studying theology but applying what we study to our hearts.
