Public Lectures

Our mandate is to educate the whole people of God—and that includes the Christian community of Vancouver and beyond. We offer free public lectures by our own world-class faculty, and by visiting scholars, teachers, and authors from around the world.

We host two regular lecture series—Summer Lectures and the Laing Lectures—as well as special events throughout the year.

Most of our lectures are recorded and available as audio downloads through

Summer Lectures

In the Spring and Summer Sessions, we host lectures every week to highlight the research of our regular faculty and our visiting summer lecturers. All lectures are in the Regent College Chapel unless otherwise noted. Our lectures tend to draw large crowds, so plan to arrive early for a good seat.

Gospel Allegiance: Lectures & Book Launch


With Matthew Bates

This fall, the Regent College Bookstore hosts the launch of Dr. Matthew Bates's new book, Gospel Allegiance: What Faith in Jesus Misses for Salvation in Christ. Dr. Bates will offer three lectures on the themes of the gospel, salvation, and discipleship. Each lecture will be followed by a question and answer period. These lectures are sponsored by the Regent College Bookstore and are being offered free of charge.

Friday, Sept. 20, 7:30 PM: "Renovating the Gospel"
In our churches today, the gospel has been reduced to trusting in Jesus's work on the cross. We might also give a brief nod to Jesus's resurrection. Yet this is not how the Bible frames the gospel. It is time for a gospel renovation.

Saturday, Sept. 21, 9:30 AM: "Saved by Allegiance Alone"
Faith is a slippery word. Discover why saving faith is best understood as allegiance.

Saturday, Sept. 21, 10:45 AM:
"Practicing Gospel Allegiance Today"
The gospel-allegiance model raises intriguing theological questions for the church. Yet right now the church must take practical steps to cultivate greater allegiance to Jesus the king.

These three lectures will be recorded and made available for purchase on Regent Audio following the event.

Matthew Bates is the Assistant Professor of Theology at Quincy University in Illinois. He is the author of three books, The Hermeneutics of Apostolic Proclamation(Baylor University Press, 2012), The Birth of the Trinity (Oxford University Press, 2015), and mostly recently, Salvation by Allegiance Alone (Baker Academic, 2017).
