EFCA Theology Conference - Doctrine of Creation
Trinity International University, Deerfield IL
EFCA

Some consider that the doctrine of creation focuses only on the origin of the universe and is concerned only with the past. Our conference will show that this is not so, as we explore the theological significance and various implications of “The Doctrine of Creation.” Our speakers will address the way the doctrine of creation impacts our understanding of God, human dignity, sexuality, our relationship to the environment, work, and our ultimate destiny, all from biblical, theological, and historical perspectives. Join with other EFCA pastors and leaders as we learn from Paige Cunningham, Hans Madueme, Tom McCall, Jonathan Moo, and Tom Nelson.
