2014: Christ the Mediator

The 2014 Deep South Founders Conference gathered to proclaim the affirmations expressed by chapter 8 of the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith, which reads in part, “It pleased God, in His eternal purpose, to choose and ordain the Lord Jesus, his only begotten Son, according to the covenant made between them both, to be the mediator between God and man; the prophet, priest, and king; head and saviour of the church, the heir of all things, and judge of the world; unto whom he did from all eternity give a people to be his seed and to be by him in time redeemed, called, justified, sanctified, and glorified.”

Our keynote speaker Geoffrey Thomas revealed Christ to the conference participants and Joe Nesom, Cary Kimbrell, Johnny Pat Cox, and Rusty Grant followed his lead with powerful Christ exalting sermons.
