The Holiness of God


God is "holy, holy, holy" (Isa. 6:3) and has called us to be holy and to pursue holiness. Join us for our annual Reformation Heritage Conference as we strive to recover this essential biblical and Reformation doctrine for our worship, our churches, our families, and our lives.

The Reformation

Heritage Conference

Each year, Wayside Presbyterian Church sets aside a weekend to focus on our Reformed heritage, stemming from the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century. We invite world-class scholars in Reformation history to present a series of lectures for every-day Christians, which are meant to encourage a love for the Scriptures, to foster an appreciation for those who have gone before us, and to cultivate a joy for God through Christ.


In recent years, we've been privileged to have a variety of excellent speakers, including:

  • Derek Thomas
  • Carl Trueman
  • Harry Reeder
  • Stephen Nichols
  • Collin Hansen
  • Richard Phillips
  • Hans Madueme
  • Gordon Reed
  • Joel Beeke
  • Kelly Kapic
  • Timothy George
