“The Just Shall Live by Faith: Celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation”

October 2017 is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing the 95 Theses on the door of Wittenberg church. In commemoration of this historical launch of the Reformation, Faith Presbyterian Church will be hosting a conference with guest speaker Dr. Robert J. Cara. He will be giving three lectures focusing on the central doctrines of the Reformation. Primarily, he will discuss the doctrine of Justification, biblically, theologically and historically.

It will begin at 12:30pm with two sessions in the afternoon, breaking for dinner at 4:30, then a final lecture at 7pm.
