islam fact 300x167The annual Chafer Theological Seminary (CTS) Bible Conference is open to theologians, pastors, Christians, and students. It is a tremendous opportunity for all attendees to grow in their understanding of the Scriptures and to enjoy fellowship with other like-minded believers.

The 2018 Chafer Theological Seminary Pastors’ Conference is scheduled for March 12–14 (Monday–Wednesday).

Understanding Islam

Islam has spread throughout the Western world in ways unimagined 40 years ago. During this time, jihadism has made Islamic terrorism normative. Yet, there are vast numbers of business and political leaders as well as church leaders who continue to speak of Islam as only a religion of peace. Some churches even include interfaith forums between Christians and Moslem leaders creating much controversy. With the rise of Islam today, what must the Christian know about this religion? What is their view of sin, salvation, and Jesus? What is their view of the future? What mandates about the world and the future are found in the Koran and the Hadith? Can there be detente between Islam and Christianity? What are the political realities of Islamic law called Shariah, and how is that impacting European countries and the United States and Canada?

To address these vital questions Chafer Seminary has invited Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim who converted to Christianity as a young adult to help us understand the truth about Islam and the direction of modern Islamic movements. It is vital for Bible-believing Christians to be informed for the dual purpose of evangelism, as well as the political and civil decisions that must be made in relation to Islamic immigration.

This will be the major focus of the conference this year. Eight sessions will be devoted to the study of Islam. The other sessions will focus on some vital studies of God’s Word when we will be refreshed by the eternal truths of the Scripture. The following topics will also be discussed:

Bruce Baker: Romans 1:19–23

Bob Bolender: 1,000 Generations of the Dispensation of the Fullness of Time

Charles Clough: Interactive Session on Chafer Theological Seminary and You

Craig Northcott: The Local Church’s Role in Government

Andy Woods: 2 Thessalonians 2:3a: Spiritual Apostasy? Or Rapture?

Make your plans to be informed and attend the Chafer Seminary Pastors’ Conference at West Houston Bible Church. All who wish to know the truth are welcome to attend.


Chafer Seminary continues to move forward and we will also provide updates on our plans and the future. Please continue in prayer for our Chancellor, Dr. Meisinger and his health.
