Current Series:  

Angels and Demons

angels and demons

Angels and demons are portrayed and discussed everywhere — from statues and paintings to poems and songs to the Internet. But are they understood correctly? With all the attention these beings receive, Christians are bound to get confused between what is often assumed to be “common knowledge” and how the Word of God actually portrays them. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul challenges many of the modern myths regarding these other-worldly beings by offering a biblical view of the spiritual realm.

Completed Series: 

Reformation Profiles

People new to Reformed theology may wonder just what it was about a five-hundred-year-old historical movement that affects our thinking so much today. So join Dr. Stephen Nichols for an inviting, approachable take on “Reformation 101,” as he explores the events of the Protestant Reformation from the perspective of important figures from each of four key countries in this new seven-part teaching series. More than a history lesson, Dr. Nichols helps believers understand why the Reformation mattered then and matters now.

Marks of a Healthy Church

Marks of Healthy Church

Jesus established the church as the natural arena for our spiritual growth, and our health depends on it. In this fifteen-message series, Marks of a Healthy Church, Drs. Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman survey the marks of a healthy church, where we are called to display God’s glorious character in unity, holiness, and love. We can’t do it alone.

Sermon on the Mount

The Sermon on the Mount is perhaps the best-known and most-beloved sermon ever preached. In this sermon, Jesus shows Himself to be the promised King as He announces the kingdom of God and demonstrates its power. In this twelve-lecture series, Dr. Sinclair B. Ferguson explains how this sermon equips us to live a kingdom life in a fallen world. Dr. Ferguson looks at the sermon’s teachings on such topics as living counterculturally, the deeper implications of the law of God, and how the foundational knowledge of God as Father is the cure for all our anxieties.

Completed Series:  Church History (100-600 AD)

Church History - Part 1

Many committed, knowledgeable believers still know little about the history of the church. As a result, they’re missing a testament to God’s steadfastness over the centuries. Now, a monumental new teaching series sheds crucial light on church history, demonstrating God’s promise to build and preserve his church so that “the gates of hell will not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). Join Dr. W. Robert Godfrey as he takes believers through the first twelve lectures of what will be a seventy-three-lecture series covering theology, apologetics, notable church fathers, and much more.

Completed Series:  God in our Midst

God in our Midst

How does an ancient tent in the wilderness of Sinai relate to our relationship with God? The description of the tabernacle, God’s Old Testament dwelling place, spans sixteen chapters of the Bible. Yet many of us pass over this extended description without understanding its significance. In this series, Rev. Daniel R. Hyde encourages us to consider this “tent of meeting” (Ex. 27:21). By studying the particulars of this first tabernacle, we will better understand Jesus, the One who dwelt, or “tabernacled,” among us (John 1:14).

Completed Series:  Who is the Holy Spirit?

Although the Holy Spirit is sometimes the forgotten Person of the Trinity, His presence and work is found throughout redemptive history. In this twelve-message series, Dr. Sinclair Ferguson traces the work of the third person of the Trinity through Scripture – from creation to the work of Christ to His dwelling in our hearts today. Along the way, he sheds light on the vital role the Holy Spirit serves. Dr. Ferguson’s goal is to help us know the Holy Spirit as a person, in addition to knowing of His power and work within us.

Completed Series:  Abortion

Abortion2

Are you pro-life or pro-choice? Few questions have divided people as deeply or as emotionally as this one. Abortion is such a deeply divisive issue because fundamental moral issues are at stake. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul moves beyond the shouting matches in order to examine the issue calmly and rationally. With clarity and compassion, he explains why abortion is a violation of God’s purposes for His creation.

Completed Series:   Pilgrim’s Progress – A Guided Tour

PIlgrims Progress

The Pilgrim’s Progress, written by Baptist pastor John Bunyan over 300 years ago, is one of the most widely-circulated books every to be published in the English language.  In spite of its popularity in the past, many people today are not familiar with this masterpiece.  Join respected pastor and theologian Dr. Derek Thomas as he takes readers along this allegorical journey, showing that Christians have as much to gain from this book today as they did hundreds of years ago.

Completed Series:  The Attributes of God

620x268_AttributesOfGod

Who is God?  A true, intimate relationship with God is not based on our own ideas about what God is like.  If we really desire to know God, we must approach Him based on the knowledge of who He reveals Himself to be in His Word.  Join Dr. Steven J. Lawson in this in-depth study as he articulates a biblical understanding of fifteen divine attributes and explores how a right understanding of God can affect every aspect of our lives.

Series Completed:  This is a series of video lectures presented by Dr. R.C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries

There was a time when scientists regarded the universe as the handiwork of God. But most modern scientists operate on the assumption that God is a myth, that the universe is an entity caused and ruled by chance. Nonsense, says Dr. R.C. Sproul in Creation or Chaos: Modern Science and the Existence of God.

The relationship between science and faith is controversial — even among Christians. This series addresses the most fundamental issue in the dispute. By showing the logical absurdity of the chaos theory of the universe and the supreme rationality of creation, Creation or Chaos can help you take a confident and credible stand for Christ.
