2 Min Read

Stephen LawsonDr. Steven J. Lawson is president and founder of OnePassion Ministries. He is director of the doctor of ministry program at The Master's Seminary, professor-in-residence for Truth Remains, and a visiting professor in the doctor of ministry program at the Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies. Dr. Lawson’s many books include The Daring Mission of William Tyndale, Pillars of Grace, and John Knox: Fearless Faith.

Our 2016 West Coast Conference will be centered on the theme of “The Gospel.” In addition to a questions and answers session, here’s a preview of what Dr. Steven Lawson will specifically address:

The Gospel as Historical Fact

The gospel of Jesus Christ is "good news." It is "good" because it tells the greatest story ever told about how God redeems those who repent and believe in Christ alone for salvation. It is "news" because it is rooted in the historical events of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. In this session, Dr. Steven Lawson will explain why the historicity of the biblical record is essential for the truth claims of the gospel.

He Is Not Here: The Resurrection of Christ

Without the resurrection of Christ, our hope of eternal life is vanquished. Since we know that Christ has risen from the dead, we have reason for faith and motivation for ministry. The resurrection testifies to the victory of Christ on the cross and the power of the gospel over sin and death. In this session, Dr. Steven Lawson will describe how the resurrection of Christ provides the basis for our faith and gives hope for new life.

While you're waiting for June, you can look back in the archives and find all of Dr. Lawson's conference messages here. For example, here's a message from our 2016 National Conference in which Dr. Lawson teaches on the promise of redemption given throughout the Old Testament and fulfilled in Christ.
