2018 West Coast Conference

The Faith Once for All Delivered from Burk Parsons

Dr. Burk Parsons opened our West Coast Conference by considering the challenges of our post-Christian culture. From the Epistle of Jude, he discussed the threats inside and outside the church that make it necessary for us to know and contend for the faith.

Always Ready from Stephen Nichols

Dr. Stephen Nichols then turned to Peter 3:15–16 and reflected on the call to always be ready to give an answer for the hope that is within us. He looked at some of the most pressing issues facing Christian apologists today.

The Unknown God from W. Robert Godfrey

After dinner, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey discussed how the Apostle Paul responded to objections to the Christian faith on Mars Hill. Looking back to Paul’s example, he described how Christians today must answer the claims of atheists, agnostics, and those who think that there are many ways to God.

Is Truth Dead? from Ravi Zacharias

In our final session for the day, Ravi Zacharias considered how our postmodern culture strives to convince us that no religious truth claim is better than any other. He explained that objective truth is foundational to the Christian message—and all of life.
