2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, a momentous event in the history of the church. Against the backdrop of a corrupt church propagating works-based salvation and a flawed view of Christ, the reformers upheld Scripture's true declaration that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
Today, people around the globe are once again being offered a false gospel and an insufficient Christ. In Asia, the prosperity gospel is permeating the churches. In Africa, religious syncretism has long prevailed in the continent. In Latin America, works-based righteousness continues to hold sway over the masses. And in Europe and North America, ecumenism and liberalism continue to confuse and wreak havoc on the church. To reach into these lands with the transforming power of the gospel, a proper view of Christ is essential.
To address these critical issues, TMAI is bringing together some of the most trusted evangelical voices from around the globe, such as John MacArthur, Paul Washer, Conrad Mbewe, and Miguel Núñez. Pastors, missions pastors, international church leaders, and those engaged in cross-cultural ministry are invited to attend this important one-day event on February 27, 2017 in Burbank, CA.
This event is open to all believers. International guests may attend at no charge.
