If you’re within driving distance of Cedarville, we invite you to join us on April 4 for Living Water, our annual apologetics conference hosted by Cedarville’s Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity. Our plenary session speakers Sam Allberry and Rosaria Butterfield will challenge us as believers to think carefully, biblically, and pastorally about how we can live, model, and share the Gospel in a sexually broken world.
The conference is free, but seating is limited. To guarantee a spot, you can purchase a “backstage pass” for $10 online, which also includes a meet and greet with the speakers.
Watch a video to hear Dr. Dan DeWitt, Director of the Center for Biblical Apologetics and Public Christianity, share more about this informative, timely conference.
One of the greatest ways that I have seen God work in my own life is in the area of anger. When I was in my teens, blowing my temper was one of my biggest shortcomings. Now, by the grace of God, it is no longer a struggle in my life.
As we continue in our Way of Wisdom series, we see that the book of Proverbs has a lot to say about anger and why we need to control it. A quick temper does not reflect the glory of God, but sheds light on our own selfish self-absorption and pride. It makes us appear foolish, when we should be seeking to be wise.
So how do we control our temper to reflect the glory of a gracious, merciful God? Join us as we look at principles and practical applications from the book of Proverbs.
Tonight, March 27, Cedarville’s Department of Music and Worship will present the Easter portion of Handel’s “Messiah,” one of the most soul-inspiring masterworks in church history. The performance begins at 7 p.m. in the Jeremiah Chapel, led by guest conductor Peter Stafford Wilson of the Springfield Symphony Orchestra. This event will feature the Cedarville University orchestra, faculty solo artists, and a 100-voice combined choir. Ticket price is just $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and may be purchased at the door beginning at 6 p.m. Join us as we celebrate the victory over sin and death won on Easter by our Lord and King, Jesus.
The book of Proverbs begs us to keep and treasure God’s wisdom so we can avoid folly; nowhere is that more true than with the issue of purity, as described in chapter 7.
This week’s sermon topic may be painful for those who have struggled in this area, but if you have made mistakes in the past, let me assure you that you are not alone and that your sin – like all sin – is nailed to the cross of Jesus Christ.
But whether you want to reclaim purity or continue in its pursuit, Proverbs 7 offers us godly wisdom on how we can set ourselves on a spiritual trajectory of purity that honors God.
Join us as we continue our Way of Wisdom series.
We tackled a controversial subject in chapel this week, and I did my best to address it with grace and wisdom. At Cedarville we have some standards that are clear biblical mandates and others that we consider institutional preferences. Among believers in the church today and within our campus community, you will find differing views on where alcohol fits on that mandate-to-preference spectrum.
More important than what people think, I wanted our students, faculty, and staff to consider carefully what Scripture says about the issue of alcohol. In short, Proverbs condemns alcohol abuse and encourages wisdom with alcohol. But there’s more to examine, and I invite you to join me as we consider four key principles from Proverbs regarding the believer’s attitude toward alcohol.
Ultimately, we want our students, faculty, and staff to flourish for the glory of God and the good of other people, pursuing the Way of Wisdom.

According to recent survey results from the National Association of Colleges and Employers First Destination survey, 97.5 percent of Cedarville’s class of 2017 was employed or in graduate school six months after commencement. This outstanding rate far exceeds the national average and offers further evidence of how Cedarville prepares students for career success.
