PCRT Returns to Greenville

The Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology returns to Greenville next month. Last year’s gathering was a tremendous blessing, and this year should prove to be another wonderful time of instruction, fellowship, and worship.

This year’s slate of speakers includes:

This year’s topic is These Last Days: A Christian View of History. From the brochure:

How do we biblically understand our time as the final age of world history and what does it mean to our faith? This is the question that will be taken up by our 39th meeting of the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology. Reformed Christians have often shunned the field of eschatology, surrendering end times doctrine to more popular (but less biblical) schemes. But eschatology is important! Paul describes the fulfillment of history as “our blessed hope” (Titus 2:13), a hope made real to us now through our faith. It was their Christian doctrine of history that thrilled the first Christian disciples: they realized that with the coming of the “last days” they had entered into the reign of the eschatological kingdom that dawned with the coming of Christ. Our faith will likewise be strengthened by a biblical view of eschatology and a right understanding of what it means to live in “this present evil age” (Gal. 1:4) by means of the “powers of the age to come” (Heb. 6:5).

The conference begins Friday, April 16 at 6:00 p.m. and runs through the day Saturday. It concludes with the Sunday worship services at Second Presbyterian Church. The cost is $125; registering with a group of 5 or more lowers the price to $95.
