On April 17 and 18, 2015, we hosted Pastors Jordan Cooper and Eric Phillips for our "Imago Dei: Fall and Restoration" conference! The speakers presented on the nature of the fall and how our righteousness is restored, seen through the lens of Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions, and the Church Fathers.
