Our guest speaker is Pastor Michael J Beasley, Minister of Peace Baptist Church, Germanton, North Carolina, whose keynote address will be Flawed Foundations of ‘Continuism’ of Gifts. Pastor Beasley is author of The Fallible Prophets of New Calvinism and other titles.

In recent decades a tremendous blow has been struck at the doctrine of cessationism – the ending of the sign-gifts – by the widespread adoption of Professor Wayne Grudem’s notion about the ‘fallible’ nature of New Testament prophecy. This, for many, has sanctioned charismatic prophecy and other ‘gifts’. But Prof Grudem’s ideas are deeply flawed, along with their underlying textual foundation.

Michael Beasley has powerfully demonstrated their mistake-ridden basis, and will present his findings in addresses that will be welcomed by all who are concerned to test the integrity of cessationism. This pivotal principle is clear in the great Confessions, and so vital for our defence against the superficiality and confusion invading all evangelical life.

Dr Peter Masters will speak on the theme Upholding the Old Paths in Theology, outlining six major fields of doctrine contradicted and replaced by seriously defective ideas in new systematic theological works (eg Grudem), all of which have been absorbed into the evangelical mainstream.

The purpose will be to highlight the old, well-proved positions, and show their powerful benefits to believers and churches.

Attendance is free, but advance registration via the Tabernacle offices is required (020 7735 7076).
