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.

Plenary Speakers:

On Tuesday night of the conference, we will be hosting a Truth in Love LIVE event with Dr. Heath Lambert. This event will be live-streamed on our website and will also be broadcast on Facebook Live. We will be answering questions from all over the world related to counseling issues and the problems that people face. If you would like to submit a question, please fill out the form below.
