The Gospel-Driven Life Conference

At the start of the New Year millions of people will determine to transform their lives. They will be motivated by guilt, failure, peer pressure, pride, and a whole host of other motives. God has designed that we change through his transforming gospel, by grace alone, through faith alone. This really is good news.

Here's another conference worth knowing about, organised jointly by Westminster Seminary California and Ponte Vedra Presbyterian Church. Details can be found here. So if you live in or around Florida why not go along.


February 1-2, 2008

"The Gospel-Driven Life: Growing in Holiness by Living in Union with Christ."

This conference is based on Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." Many today think the Gospel is the message that "gets me saved." As a result, the Gospel is misunderstood as good news only for unbelievers, while believers proceed to live out the Christian life in their own strength and merit.

Westminster Seminary California professors Dr. W. Robert Godfrey, Dr. Michael S. Horton (who is also co-host of the White Horse Inn radio program), Dr. R. Scott Clark

463589-1181970-thumbnail.jpg and special guest Dr. R. C. Sproul will explore how the Gospel is good news for Christians, too. Together they will present why the person and work of Christ is the basis not only for the Christian's salvation but also for his life of sanctification. The Gospel-Driven Life from beginning to end is lived by grace through faith in Christ alone.

Our desire for The Gospel-Driven Life 2008 Conference is to call the church back to a Gospel-centered and thus Gospel-driven focus in every area of life and ministry.

From the beginning to end, the entire Christian life is lived by grace through faith in Christ alone. The Christian looks only and always to the Gospel and never to his performance as the basis for his right standing before God.
