Are You Faithfully Protestant?

Faithfully Protestant | 2017 ACBC Annual Conference from ACBC on Vimeo.

 

 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The biblical counseling movement has understood that the truths at the heart of the Reformation, are the same truths at the heart of the transformation sought in counseling.

 

It takes a commitment to biblical counseling to restore the truths of Scripture, Jesus, grace, and faith to counseling practice so that broken people would give glory to God alone. This commitment is what is required to be faithfully protestant.

 

Today we understand that it is an urgent matter to continue this work. We want you to join us in October of 2017 as we celebrate, and as we continue, the Protestant Reformation.
