Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology

The Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology is the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals national conference. PCRT exists to glorify God by proclaiming the Church’s great doctrinal foundations as rediscovered in the Protestant Reformation. Established in 1974, PCRT is the nation's oldest, continually operating, Reformed conference. Its purpose is threefold:

  • Awaken interest in biblical theology and the doctrines of grace
  • Establish a forum at which men and women in the Reformed tradition might meet and be encouraged 
  • Develop resources to strengthen the Church

Since its inception, tens of thousands of Alliance members, as well as noted pastors and teachers, have been gathering to study and be encouraged by God’s Word. PCRT remains the most potent of all Reformed conferences; lacking the air of a convention, it cultivates an intense combination of worship and Word. We hold our conference in churches to encourage a worshipful and intimate setting where attendees can meet with God in His Word and fellowship with one another and the speakers.

Your support provides for in-person training and discipleship and produces resources that will be used for years to come by believers around the globe. The Church will only grow stronger as God’s people know the Word of God and proclaim it to our contemporaries.
