The Bible is the church’s firm foundation (Eph. 2:20). It sets forth the divine law of liberty (James 1:25) and the gracious gospel of peace (Eph. 2:17-18). Its message is our magna carta and our constitution. Through it, the Holy Spirit convicts and converts sinners (1 Peter 1:23), and sanctifies saints (John 17:17). The Bible is called a hammer and fire (Jer. 23:29), the sword of the Spirit (Eph. 6:17), a germinating seed (Mark 4:20), a doubled-edged sword, and word of God (Heb. 4:12). The Reformers regarded the ministry of the word as a blast of the silver trumpet announcing the Prince of Peace.

Everybody rests their hope upon some foundation. It may be a political ideology, a prevailing philosophy, or the words of some pop-cultural icon. But Christians rest upon the very words of God. The Prophet Jeremiah said, “When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God Almighty” (Jer. 15:!6). The Psalmist says that the one who meditates upon the words of this firm foundation are like a tree “planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season” (Psa. 1:3).

To consider the excellency of God’s word is to explore all that is profitable and good about the Bible. In this year’s conference our guests will be considering such topics as the Scripture’s inspiration, authority, sufficiency, Spiritual power, centrality, and clarity. If your heart resonates with that of Jeremiah above, you will not want to miss any part of this year’s conference.
