Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Registration Open for TGC’s 2019 National Conference

Recommended Posts

The Gospel Coalition's 2019 National Conference

I am excited to announce the opening of registration for The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 National Conference—“Conversations With Jesus”—to be held April 1 to 3, 2019, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Over three days, with 68 speakers and more than 50 keynotes and workshops, we will focus on the theme of evangelism.

As important as it is to understand the gospel and defend it, it is no less important to proclaim it. One must not only articulate the gospel faithfully, one must “gospelize”—that is, evangelize. One of the best ways to preserve the gospel is to give it away. God forbid that we should retreat into holy huddles of theological reflection that never burn with a holy zeal to spread the good news —individually, through our local churches, cross-culturally, at home, and to the ends of the earth.

To fan into flame our smoldering commitments to evangelize, we plan to think through a selection of Jesus’s interactions with individuals and small groups—to listen in to conversations with Jesus. So at #TGC19, the keynotes are devoted to thinking through a selection of “conversations with Jesus,” in the earnest hope that they will spur us not only to gospel faithfulness, but also to gospel proclamation. Moreover, we are devoting some of our workshops to various facets of evangelism and apologetics, along with our usual wide range of topics.

Register soon to take advantage of early rate discounts: TGC.org/2019

Discounts are also available for students, attendees from outside the US, and groups of six or more.

I hope to see you in Indianapolis in April!
