A conference named "Reformation 500 and the Gospel" was held in the Asia World Expo of Hong Kong from May 23 to 26, 2017.
Aimed at celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the conference invited three renowned American evangelical pastors; John Piper, Paul Tripp and Richard Pratt. They preached three sermons in a "Gospel Series."
John Piper, who is the senior pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota as well as a Bible scholar, professor, and well-known best-selling author, preached sermons on "Power of the Gospel."
Paul Tripp has pastored for 15 years at Tenth Presbyterian Church and is a professor of Redeemer Seminary based in Dallas, Texas and the executive director of the Center for Pastoral Life and Care in Fort Worth, Texas. He gave sermons named "Renewal Gospel."
As a response to the need of global Christian leadership training, Richard Pratt is co-founder of Third Millennium Ministries, an organization committed to provide accessible and free education resources in learners' native languages for anyone who wants to study the Bible. He delivered sermons entitled "Kingdom of Gospel" at the conference.
Apart from the three speakers, talks on a "Reformation Series" were held in the topics of "the five solas" (Scripture alone, faith alone, Christ alone, grace alone, glory to God alone) and "Gospel & Mission."
Meanwhile, three panels were held. The first one was attended by the three speakers on "Reformation and Gospel" and the rest were by Chinese pastors on "Gospel & Today's Church" and "Reformation & Pastoral Ministry."
