In the wake of Tim Keller’s book, Centering Church, questions have arisen as to the precise relationship between Church, Culture and Gospel, and in respect to their meaning and place in the church’s task. This conference seeks to engage the “Gospel Coalition”, out of which theologians like Keller and Don Carson are working, with the question; “What precisely is the Gospel, and how do we maintain its priority in respect to Church and Culture?”


Southridge Fellowship Baptist Church, 22756 48 Avenue, Langley, BC
