On Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed 95 theses on the chapel door in Wittenberg, Germany. In those theses Luther took a stand for the truth of the gospel and a stand against departures from the truth in the church of his day. This year we are commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Luther and the other Reformers, especially John Calvin, were used by God to reform the church. Since the time of the Reformation there has been a general trend away from what the Reformation recovered. Many of the same errors in teaching, unbiblical worship practices, and unholy lifestyles are embraced in the church today. There is as great a need in 2017 as there was in 1517 for the church to be reformed.
The Protestant Reformed Seminary warmly invites you to a two-day conference marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The theme of the conference is: “Here We Stand!” The conference will be held at the Faith Protestant Reformed Church, located at 7194 20th Avenue in Jenison, MI. We are sponsoring this event free of charge. We cordially invite you to join us in celebrating the great work of God in His New Testament church.
