The Sufficiency of Scripture
2020 Winter Conference 

  • Monday, Jan 20, 2020 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST (doors open at 8:00 AM)

Sacred Scripture is our only infallible rule for faith and life, and therefore it is unlike any other book. In the Bible, God has chosen to reveal Himself, His character, and His gospel. Yet sometimes Christians struggle to grasp all that the Bible says. This conference will focus on Scripture itself and how Christians can learn from, understand, and meditate on this unique book from God in all its beauty and complexity.

Registration includes admission to all sessions and access to a mini-bookstore with special conference pricing for select titles.
