The Reformed Bible Conference is an annual event of the First Presbyterian Church (PCA) of Hinckley, MN,
now in its tenth season. The purpose of this conference is to promote the glory of God through Biblical and expository preaching, Reformed reflection, and concerted attention to the person and work of Christ.

It is our desire to uphold the true unity of the church by inviting a variety of guests committed to the historic and confessional Protestant faith to present sermons on the conference theme. It is our conviction that the gospel “is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes” (Rom. 1:16), that “faith comes from hearing the message…[which] is heard through the word of Christ” (Rom. 10:17), and that the Bible, as a God-breathed book,
is sufficient to thoroughly equip us “for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16-17). It is our intent to adorn (Titus 2:10) the gospel of Jesus Christ to the end that warm hearted devotion to the Savior be fostered through God-centered worship and Christ-centered preaching.

“For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants, for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ” (2 Cor. 4:5-6).

The eighteenth-century Scottish Presbyterian minister, Thomas Boston (1676-1732), said, “There are four things very necessary to be known by all that would see heaven: 1. What man was in the state of innocence….2. What man is in the state of corrupt nature….3. What he must be in the state of grace….[and] 4. What he will be in his eternal state.” He then added, “These are weighty points, that touch the vitals of practical godliness” (Human Nature in its Fourfold State, 37). Understanding the human condition—past, present, and future— is necessary for a proper understanding of God’s eternal plan of redemption. The Psalmist says, “When I consider the heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful him, the son of man that you care for him. You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor” (Psa. 8:3-5).

Creation’s Crown is the title of this year’s conference. Our intent is to unfold the story of human nature through its various alterations. First, we will consider it as originally created and subsequently corrupted by the Fall. Then we will feature its renewal by grace and final consummation in glory. The character of each of these states will shape our various presentations. Sermons will address such topics as creation, covenant, free will, original sin, regeneration, struggle against sin, and resurrection.

The Judeo-Christian faith is the only perspective— religious or otherwise—that affords supreme dignity to human beings. They alone, accordingly, are “crowned with glory and honor” over all the works of God’s hands. The Bible presents the story of God’s redeeming love through Jesus whereby fallen sinners are reclaimed and, in due time, restored to their original glory. Join us as we unfold this story of human nature.
