Trusting the Word of God to do the Work of God was the emphasis of the 16th annual Basics Conference for pastors and church leaders. In an increasingly secularized culture where the adherent base of the Church is declining, biblical preaching is, more than ever, a vital and primary means of evangelism. By teaching where the Bible challenges contemporary culture and how societal influences shape our beliefs, preachers can help their congregations distinguish between pop culture and truth. At the 2015 Basics Conference, Tim Keller and David Robertson joined Alistair Begg with the purpose of encouraging pastors to preach the Word boldly as men who will give an account.
Tim Keller is the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan and the author of over 10 books. He is also one of the founders of The Gospel Coalition.
David Robertson is minister of St. Peter’s Free Church in Dundee, Scotland and author of Magnificent Obsession, The Dawkins Letters, Quench and Awakening.
Alistair Begg is the senior pastor at Parkside Church in Cleveland, Ohio and the Bible teacher on the program Truth For Life.
