Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology (PCRT)

Posted by
There is a perennial need of God's people to protect God's holy things from worldly corruption. The need is particularly great today when so many professing Christians and churches are adopting the ways of the world to do the work of God. There are men in the role of ministers of the Gospel not just failing to shepherd, but failing to hold basic morals while claiming to doing God's work.

God calls Christians and churches, and yes, pastors to be holy. This means that we must not allow His holy things to be profaned. This raises important questions for us to answer: how does a zeal for evangelism often mask the importing of worldly influences? What constitutes genuinely holy worship? Does zeal for holiness involve legalism or is it a true mark of God's grace?

This years PCRT was titled "Profaning the Sacred: Beauty and Holiness of the Bride of Christ." We were hosted in both Byron Center (Grand Rapids, MI) at Byron Center First Christian Reformed Church and Bryn Mawr (Philadelphia PA) at Proclamation Presbyterian Church with both gracious hosts and wonderful friends. 

Order the audio and consider the holiness of the Church, together with its worship, ministry and life. Messages include:
"Profaning the Sanctity of Worship" by Derek Thomas
"The Uncorrupted Gospel" by Michael Horton
"The Holy Christian Life" by Greg Gilbert 
"Evangelism & the Holiness of God" by Michael Horton
"The Holy Prayers of Righteous People" by Phillip Johnson
"The Holy Bride of Christ" by Richard Phillips

And mark your calendars on March 20-22 for Grand Rapids, April 10-12 now in Nashville, and April 24-26 in Philadelphia where we will be exploring Holiness and Honor: A Reformed View of Sex and Marriage with Iain Duguid teaching the pre-conference on the the Song of Songs.
