LOCATION: 1 East Railroad Street, Claxton GA 30417 – Sovereign GraceTruth Baptist Church
The Sovereign Grace Alliance will host our conference on the subject of assurance of salvation, the place and role of good works, and the solid purpose of God in sanctification in Jesus Christ alone. The teaching will examine several areas that are pertinent to the current church and the gospel of Free and Sovereign Grace.
Most notably, we will address the popular idea of what is termed “Lordship Salvation” and expound on the Scripture on the different views and what the Bible actually teaches about our surety in the work of Christ in contrast to the numerous philosophies that have birthed from the ideas of the contemporary teaching of “fruit” assurances.
