Redemption Accomplished and Applied
Liam Goligher, Ian Hamilton, David Murray, Joe Thorn
“Those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified” Romans 8:30
The apostle Paul’s outline of salvation in Romans 8:30 spurred the Reformation’s development of the ordo salutis – an outline of the order of salvation for those who believe. How important it is to know how salvation works! In 1955, theologian John Murray published his classic work, Redemption Accomplished & Applied, unfolding the relationship between regeneration, faith, justification, and sanctification as they find union in Jesus Christ. This timeless and uplifting theme will supply the messages for our 2019 Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology. What a great Redeemer we have, and how marvelous is his accomplishment of our deliverance from sin! Coupled with Christ’s accomplishment, we consider the Holy Spirit’s application of God’s grace. What a feast of blessings we have through our justification, sanctification, and glorification in Christ!
If there was ever a time when a clear understanding of Christ and his work, together with the Spirit’s application of God’s saving grace, that generation is ours. It is our joy and delight in the PCRT to highlight the great biblical themes that fueled reformation in years past. We have no doubt that our lifting up of Christ’s redeeming work will have a similar effect through our conference. May the Savior who died for our sins grant blessing through our worship and teaching of his mighty work!
We are excited to welcome an outstanding roster of theologians and teachers for our conference. Our Grand Rapids location will feature Ian Hamilton, Liam Goligher, David Murray, and Joe Thorn, men acclaimed for their gospel preaching in America and Britain. We hope you will join us for the annual blessings that come through God’s Word at PCRT. We know you will find our 2019 conference a special blessing as it opens God’s Word to consider the greatest of all themes: the accomplishment and application of redemption by our victorious Savior, Jesus Christ!
