Statement of Principles:

Necessity
God has re-ignited among Southern Baptists an interest in what has been historically denominated the Doctrines of Grace. Those so interested desire fellowship. The energy generated by this renewal should be conserved and guided.

Motive
The motive of the conference is to glorify God, honor His gospel, and strengthen His churches by providing encouragement to Southern Baptists through historical, biblical, theological, practical, and ecumenical studies.

Purpose
The purpose is to be a balanced conference in respect to doctrine and devotion expressed in the Doctrines of Grace and their experimental application to the local church, particularly in the areas of worship and witness. This is to be accomplished by engaging a variety of speakers to present formal papers, sermons, expositions, and devotions, and by recommending and distributing literature consistent with the nature of the conference.

Subject and Procedure
The theological foundation of the conference will be the Doctrines of Grace (election, depravity, atonement, effectual calling, and perseverance) and specifically related truths. These subjects will be presented doctrinally, expositionally, homiletically, and historically. Each conference will concentrate on the experimental and pastoral application of the respective doctrines.


Speakers:

Dr. Joel R. Beeke, Professor of Systematic Theology and Homiletics, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI; Editor of the Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth

Dr. Daniel Block, Professor of Old Testament, Wheaton College Graduate School, Wheaton, IL

Dr. Phil A. Newton, Senior Pastor of South Woods Baptist Church, Memphis, TN; Executive Board Member for Founders Ministries

Dr. Alan Price, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Chatsworth, GA
