The Reformation was a movement which renewed trust in the Word of God and consequently changed the face of Christianity. October 31 marks the 500 year anniversary of the publication of Martin Luther’s 95 theses which emphasized that it is God who alone forgives sin and grants grace rather than the works of penance imposed by the church. Please join us for a conference that explores the implications of Luther’s theology and actions for the life and ministry of the church today.
