ORLANDO, FL — Ligonier Ministries is pleased to host Here We Stand, a free online streaming event, on April 13, 2021, beginning at 4:00 p.m. ET. Celebrating the five-hundredth anniversary of Martin Luther’s stand for God’s Word at the Diet of Worms, this special event will explore the essential truths championed in the Protestant Reformation.
Ligonier Teaching Fellows Drs. Sinclair Ferguson, W. Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Stephen Nichols, Burk Parsons, and Derek Thomas will consider the ongoing relevance of the five solas of the Reformation for people of all ages, encouraging Christians to stand with conviction on the Word of God today. Joining them will be Nathan W. Bingham, Revs. Ken Mbugua and Sugel Michelén, and Dr. Michael Reeves to address how the gospel is advancing around the world and to equip Christians to pray for the church in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, Europe, and Latin America.
Chris Larson, president and CEO of Ligonier Ministries, spoke on the importance of this online streaming event:
“The Christian faith is rooted in history. We look back because we see Jesus building His church and we grow in our faith for faithful service in our own generation. Martin Luther’s bold stand for Christ was a pivotal moment. It is not the strength of Luther’s faith that we celebrate, but rather the strength of Luther’s Savior. Christians today must likewise stand with conviction in defending the supreme authority of Scripture and the eternal truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. It was our founder, Dr. R.C. Sproul, who said, ‘In every generation, the gospel must be published anew with the same boldness, and the same clarity, and the same urgency that came forth in the sixteenth-century Reformation.’ It is our hope that this online streaming event, by the grace of God, may equip the global church toward that end.”
Here We Stand will be streaming on April 13 at 4:00 p.m. ET on the Ligonier Ministries blog, YouTube channel, Facebook page, and Twitter account. Viewers are encouraged to share this free online streaming event with family and friends.
