Marking the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation
It is widely regarded that October 31, 1517, the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Church in Germany, marked a turning point in the Protestant Reformation. But it would be incorrect to believe the reformation began on that day. God has been reforming his people ever since he called a people to Himself. Truth has always been disseminated from the word of God by the Holy Spirit.
This year to mark the 500th Anniversary of that event, our church history conference will be focused on the British side of the Reformation. It will demonstrate that reformation ideas were present long before Luther and introduce historical materials that are more accessible to English speakers. Dr Michael G. Haykin from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary will join us once again to deliver four lectures on Sunday afternoon at Monday evening. He will be addressing why the Reformation still matters, the early influence of reformers like William Tyndale, the inspiring examples of those willing to give their lives for the sake of truth and how the message was conveyed through preaching during the time period.
Don’t miss out on this quality event. Clear your schedule and make every effort to be here. Several local congregations will be joining us. Let’s give them a warm Providence welcome.
