  • Our purpose is to encourage pastors, students and church leaders to recover the gospel of God's grace and work for the spiritual health and reformation of local churches.

  • Our abiding concerns:

    • We desire to be orthodox without being obnoxious.

    • We want to be confessional, yet contemporary.

    • We are Southern Baptist, though not sectarian.

    • Our goal is to be doctrinally and devotionally balanced.

R Albert Mohler (1954-)
