Our annual conferences exist to advance and celebrate the truths of the Protestant Reformation, present the greatness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and encourage a reawakening to the holiness of God. Annually, the conference seeks to draw world class scholars who can lead listeners to a fuller understanding of the truths and riches of Holy Scripture. The conference will challenge you to think more Biblically as you live your life before the face of God.
Friday, September 24
6 pm: Registration Opens
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm: Session 1: Living in Christ (Romans 5:1-21) – Paul’s teaching on the Christian life hangs on seven words (four in Greek), when he states “since we have been justified by faith.” In this talk, we explore how who we are determines what we do.
Saturday, September 25
8:00 am: Registration Opens
9:00 am – 10:00 am: Session 2: Dethroning Sin (Romans 6:1-23) – How does God’s free grace affect the way we view and struggle with sin? In this talk, we outline Paul’s compelling case for dying unto sin and living unto righteousness.
10:30 am – 11:30 am: Session 3: Limping Forward (Romans 7:1-25) – Even when we desire to live unto righteousness, many often struggle with sin. Why is that? Paul is not simply a theologian but pastor and in this talk we examine his pastoral counsel for those in sin.
11:30 am – 1:00 pm: Lunch
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm: Session 4: Resting in God (Romans 8:18-39) – As justification is by grace, so also is sanctification. Paul reminds the weak and struggling that God will complete his purpose and that our confidence is in Him alone.
2:15 pm – 3:15 pm: Q&A Session
3:15 pm: Conference Ends
Lord’s Day, September 26
