After Darkness, Light: Reformation Through Biblical Worldview Thinking Worldview: The comprehensive framework of one's basic beliefs about things.

Everyone has a worldview.

The question is, Does your worldview agree with the Word of God?

The need of the hour is for Christians to have a consistent, fully biblical worldview in which all things are seen in submission to the Lordship of Christ and the glory of God is paramount. That worldview, once developed, must then shape the contours of the way Christians live. The purpose of the Providence Worldview Conference is to equip the church of Jesus Christ by applying faithful worldview thinking to the most pressing issues of our day. To apply biblical worldview thinking to life fulfills the Apostle Paul’s admonition in 2 Corinthians 10:5 ‡กใ “bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” The Providence Worldview Conference brings together incisive Christian minds to address critical worldview issues facing the church in the 21st century, rebuilding the ruins of a once great Christian civilization.

Several important lines of worldview thinking intersect at the junction of our worldview of children. Our view of the mission of the church, worship and discipleship, the family, society, and the future all connect in how we think about, train, and love our children.

And what about the church’s children? The church’s dyke has a rupture and her children are gushing into the world ill-equipped to live for Christ and unprepared to face the enemy. As a result the church is weak. The church will not rise to effectively proclaim Christ as all in all until she has recovered a biblical worldview of children. Regaining a biblical worldview of children is a first step toward a new reformation.

Will you be a part of this new reformation?

Post Tenebras Lux

The Protestant Reformers of the 16th C. used the Latin phrase Post Tenebras Lux ‡กใ “after darkness, light.” We believe a new dawning of the light of truth will come as Christian parents embrace their God-given responsibility to train their children for the glory of God. A glorious future awaits the church of Christ, and we enter that future as we bring up our children in the training and admonition of the Lord, believing that God will graciously bring His kingdom in the earth through our faithful labors.

Covenant Succession

“It is neither an actual coincidence that the largest number of Christians have Christian parents, nor is it simply a phenomenon left unaccounted for. Everywhere in the Bible the Lord declares it to be his purpose that Christian marriages produce a holy seed (Mal. 2:15). One of the primary features of the covenant the Lord established with his people is that it embraces families and has always in view the continuation of its saving blessing for generations to come.”

This statement by Pastor Robert Rayburn sums up what is called the doctrine of covenant succession. God’s covenant will prosper in the world as the gospel is believed by succeeding generations of faithful, well-equipped, believing children who are well-prepared to enter into spiritual warfare and contend for Christ and His gospel.
