Another Symposium in the Books

by W. Jackson Watts

Last Monday and Tuesday, the Commission for Theological Integrity sponsored their twentieth annual Symposium which explored the theological legacy of F. Leroy Forlines. The event was held on the campus of Welch College and was also live-streamed. We were gratified to have a great turnout (people came from 9 different states), as well as having hundreds of people check into the event online.

The Symposium featured eight presentations given by nine different pastors, scholars, and/or leaders from different walks of life.  We also had a panel discussion to conclude the event in which panelists considered the state of Free Will Baptist theology, and the legacy of Leroy Forlines.

A more extensive write-up of the event can be found at However, the Theological Commission would like to continue to share content from the event with those interested. Hard copies of the Digest of Papers can be attained for the price of $15 (includes S&H). Please send an email to to place your order. Also, in the coming weeks, a digital download/PDF version of the papers will be available for $10. More details to come.

In the meantime, enjoy some of the free audio from the event below. The following is Richard Clark discussing his theological journey to Arminianism through the influence of F. Leroy Forlines.
