Each year, Beeson Divinity School of Samford University sponsors The Reformation Heritage Lectures during Reformation Week. The Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century was a tremendous movement of spiritual and ecclesial renewal, which called the church back to its biblical and evangelical roots.

We desire to be not merely a church once and for all reformed, but a church reformed and always reforming:  Ecclesia semper reformanda! We respect the warranted wisdom of the past, for only from it can we learn to be faithful shapers of the future under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
