“Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering and come before him! Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth…”
1 Chronicles 16:29-30a

What is the chief end of man? The Westminster Shorter Catechism’s first question was wisely answered this way: “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” The worship of God is a command He has given to His creatures, but our sinfulness makes worship difficult: we worship the wrong things, or else we worship the right object—God—in ways that He has not directed. Everyone is, at heart, a worshiper; the only question is whether we worship the right object in the right fashion.

Can there be a more important subject than worship? With all the excesses and errors that have seeped into the modern Church concerning worship, we need to hear God’s clear instruction from God’s inerrant, authoritative Word on man’s chief end: giving glory to God. With that in mind, the 2019 Quakertown Conference on Reformed Theology will be entirely focused on doxology: on giving glory to God. Every message will hone in on the worship of God, answering such basic questions as “What is divine worship?” “Whom do we worship?” and “How do we worship according to the Word?”

The Quakertown Conference on Reformed Theology is excited to welcome a gifted lineup of pastors and theologians as this year’s speakers, including Iain Duguid, Jason Helopoulos, and Harry Reeder, as well as seminar speakers Jonathan Master and Bryan Maier. Scheduled for November 8-9, 2019 at Grace Bible Fellowship Church in Quakertown, all who attend will have the privilege of attending five general sessions and one of three workshops. I am confident this will be a weekend of worship, education, and edification of the saints. Beyond that I’m thankful that for each of the 12 years of the conference we have been able to keep this event affordable.

Please prayerfully consider joining us. Since its inception in 2008, QCRT’s goal has been to provide a helpful teaching tool for both laypersons and pastors, encouraging the reformation of the Church according to the Scriptures, so that Christians would be faithful in doctrine, in worship, in ministry, and in life.
