Last year The Gospel Coalition celebrated its 10th anniversary.
While grateful for the many things accomplished over the last decade, we pray for continued faithfulness as we seek gospel-centered renewal today and for the coming generation.
So, what will it look like for TGC to continue seeking reformation according to Scripture?
We posed this question in a new roundtable video to TGC co-founders Don Carson and Tim Keller, along with Council member John Piper.
Carson takes a step back and considers the word “reform,” which can have antiquarian baggage for many. Citing the example of Richard Baxter’s The Reformed Pastor (which for Baxter meant “renewed” pastor), he urges to think in terms of Scripture-shaped renewal. Faithfulness to TGC’s Foundation Documents, according to Piper, must be rooted in constant examination of God’s Word. By doing so, we will have true reform and renewal with whatever challenges we face in the future.
Watch (or listen below) to the 10-minute conversation as these leaders discuss the heart of TGC conferences, fresh discoveries of truth when the gospel moves into a new culture, the holy joy of diverse unity in Christ, and more.
Editors’ note: We’re pleased to announce that TGC’s 2017 National Conference will be held in Indianapolis from April 3 to 5 on the theme of “No Other Gospel: Reformation 500 & Beyond,” marking the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Registration will open next month, when we’ll make a more formal announcement.
