2014 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Monday, March 10 through Wednesday, March 12, 2014
West Houston Bible Church
1500 W. Sam Houston Pkwy. N., Suite 104
Houston, TX 77043
The annual Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference is open to theologians, pastors, students, and laymen. It is a tremendous opportunity for all attendees to grow in their understanding of the Scriptures and to enjoy fellowship with other like-minded believers.
Much controversy has been stirred up regarding dispensationalism since John Nelson Darby first systematized this theology. Since the early 19th century, though, millions of faithful believers have learned to “rightly divide” the Word of Truth by learning to consistently apply principles of literal interpretation to the Scripture.
The result has made it clear that God has a distinct plan for Israel and a distinct plan for the Church. At this conference we are going to learn about the history of dispensationalism, theological distinctives of dispensationalism, and implications of dispensationalism for our understanding of God’s Word.
The speakers at this year’s conference have spent decades of study researching critical issues related to dispensational theology. We hope that God will give you fresh insight into the understanding and application of His Word in your life through the study of these topics.
