How Together for the Gospel began
Together for the Gospel began as a friendship between four pastors. These friends differed on issues such as baptism and the charismatic gifts. But they were committed to standing together for the main thing—the gospel of Jesus Christ.
So they began a biennial conference in 2006 to serve one main purpose: to encourage other pastors to stand together for the same gospel. As the conference has grown, more and more Church leaders discovered they shared their ambition.
T4G is convinced that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been misrepresented and marginalized in many churches and among those who proclaim the name of Christ. Therefore, the goal of these friendships and conferences is to reaffirm the central doctrine of the Christian faith and to encourage local churches to do the same.
The four long-time friends, Mark Dever, Ligon Duncan, C. J. Mahaney, and Albert Mohler, have asked John Piper, Thabiti Anyabwile, Matt Chandler, Kevin DeYoung and David Platt to join them again for the next Together for the Gospel Conference on April 8-10, 2014.
