Emmanuel Bible Church
Now, and throughout church history, there have been many errors and misunderstandings about who Jesus is. Reformation Pratum: Who is Jesus? will focus on who Jesus was in His role as Prophet, Priest, and King, as well as some historical misunderstandings of Jesus. All ages are invited to attend, as we will have a simultaneous conference for kids 3 years old through 6th grade. Nursery is also provided. The cost is free.
Friday, 5:30-9:00 PM
Jesus as God & Man
How was Jesus both God and man, and why does it matter? There have been many errors taught about this doctrine, and it matters greatly. The New Testament is clear that we are to know the true Jesus as presented in the Bible. Andrew Murch of LifePoint Church will address this fundamental issue.
Christianity & Liberalism
The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw a dwindling of orthodox theology in favor of a “modern” approach to Christianity (i.e. Jesus existed as a great example but not Lord, man was essentially good, etc.) and many fought against it. Brett Davisson of Emmanuel Bible Church will focus on how J. Gresham Machen fought for truth and explain how his example is pertinent in our day.
Jesus as Chief Prophet
Jesus not only heralded the Word of God to man, but is Himself the Word. Ending the era of the Old Testament prophets, He proclaimed a new era in man’s relationship with God. Just as the Old Testament prophets spoke against sin, called people to repentance, and pronounced the forgiveness and pardon of God, so Jesus as our sufficient Prophet has done all of these for us.
Saturday, 8:30-12:00 AM
Jesus as Great High Priest
Jesus was and is the ultimate and perfect sacrifice, the Lamb of God. He is the ONLY mediator. Demetrius Rogers of LifePoint Church will expand on the ways in which Jesus fulfills the office of great high priest, and graciously deals with our sin.
Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Martyn Lloyd-Jones was an influential British pastor who staunchly defended the purity of the Gospel and fought against the general down-grade of doctrine in the greater evangelical church. Stan Myers of Emmanuel Bible Church will use Jones’ life and teaching to inform our Christian life in a culture increasingly hostile to truth.
Jesus as Conquering King
King Jesus rules now and forever over heaven and earth, old and new. He is the greater David. Christ is not just our Savior but is our Lord. Andrew Murch of LifePoint Church will wrap up the conference teaching on Jesus as our King.
