Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, Lex Vivendi can be translated as “The rule of worship is the rule of belief is the rule of life.” When we worship, we reflect what we believe. Equally as true, though, and perhaps even more influentially, when we worship, we shape what we believe. As we respond to God’s self-revelation, we form our understanding of who he is, what he does, and what he expects from us. All this, in turn, shapes how we live. In other words, when we worship, we are forming disciples. The question, then, is what kind of disciples are we forming?
This conference (formerly known as Western Fellowship of Professors and Scholars) promotes research, discussion, and academic fellowship on issues relating to the Christian faith. The new name of ASPEKT was chosen to better encompass the goals for the conference as well as open the conference up to attenders not just in academia but also in other areas of ministry.
