2014 Reformation Tour!!!!

May 16th, 2013 | Comments Off on 2014 Reformation Tour!!!!

In 2009, IRBS sponsored a Baptist/Puritan History Tour of England. It went so well that people have been asking for another. In response, we are organizing a June 2014 Reformation Tour. We’ll visit Germany, Switzerland and France. There will be lots of Luther sites in places like Wittenberg, Eisleben, Erfurt, and Eisenach; we’ll visit Heidelburg, Strasbourg, Zurich, Berne, spend some time in Geneva, and wind up in Paris. In addition, we’ll see some World War II sites in Berlin, spend a few solemn hours at the Buchenwald Concentration Camp, visit Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the finest walled medieval city in Europe, take two cruises and enjoy good Christian company. I’ll be lecturing on the bus as we travel from place to place, describing the people and places of the Reformation.

We have already had a great deal of interest. We can only take 50 people on the tour, and it is important for you to get your name on the list. Registrations will begin in August, but we are now compiling a list of interested people. You’ll find the email address in the green box below.

We hope to have you with us . . . .

2013 Baptist Symbolics Lectures

May 14th, 2013 | 1 Comment

You are invited to attend the 2013 IRBS Symbolics class to be offered August 20-30, 2013 on the Campus of Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, CA. Lectures will be held Tuesday-Friday of each week.

Baptist Symbolics is a study of the importance of confessions of faith in Baptist life. It begins with some historical material, considers various views of confessional subscription, and then focuses on the First London Confession of 1644/46 and the Second London Confession of 1677/89. We will expound both of these Confessions in detail.

Pastors and church leaders are invited to audit the course for only $50.00. Through a generous gift from the Foundation for the Advancement of Reformed Baptist Causes, students registered in the IRBS Continuing Education program may take the course for CEP credit for free!

Limited free housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Why not join us for these two weeks? For more information, please contact Prof. Renihan at



November 29th, 2012 | Comments Off on Holiness

“Holiness is the habit of being of one mind with God, according as we find His mind described in Scripture. It is the habit of agreeing in God’s judgment–hating what He hates–loving what He loves–and measuring everything in this world by the standard of His Word. He who most entirely agrees with God, he is the most holy man.” J.C. Ryle, Holiness, page 35.
