Ligonier Ministries Confidence: 88% Arrow up

Ligonier Ministries is a Reformed international Christian organization headquartered in the greater Orlando, Florida area.

It was founded by R. C. Sproul in the Ligonier Valley, Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburgh in 1970.

Ligonier's stated purpose is "to awaken as many people as possible to the holiness of God by proclaiming, teaching, and defending God’s holiness in all its fullness." Sproul and Ligonier are particularly known for their teaching of Reformed theology, of which Calvinism is an important facet.

R. C. Sproul Confidence: 79% Arrow up

Robert Charles Sproul (born February 13, 1939) is an American Calvinist theologian, author, and pastor.

He is the founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries (named after the Ligonier Valley just outside Pittsburgh, where the ministry started as a study center for college and seminary students) and can be heard daily on the Renewing Your Mind radio broadcast in the United States and internationally.

"Renewing Your Mind with Dr. R.C. Sproul" is also broadcast on Sirius and XM satellite radio.

In late July 2012, a new Christian internet radio station called RefNet (Reformation Network) was also announced by Ligonier Ministries in an effort to reach "as many people as possible" where Internet access is available.

Bible Confidence: 78% Arrow up

The Bible (from Koine Greek τὰ βιβλία, tà biblía, "the books") is a collection of sacred texts or scriptures that Jews and Christians consider to be a product of divine inspiration and a record of the relationship between God and humans.

God Confidence: 73% Arrow up

In monotheism, God is conceived of as the Supreme Being and principal object of faith.

The concept of God as described by most theologians includes the attributes of omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), divine simplicity, and as having an eternal and necessary existence.

Many theologians also describe God as being omnibenevolent (perfectly good) and all loving.

Holiness movement Confidence: 72% Arrow up

The Holiness movement refers to a set of beliefs and practices which emerged from 19th-century Methodism, and to a number of Evangelical Christian denominations, parachurch organizations, and movements which emphasize those beliefs as central doctrine.

The movement is defined by its emphasis on John Wesley's doctrine of a second work of grace leading to Christian perfection.

Holiness-movement churches had an estimated 12 million adherents.
