A Tribute to R.C. Sproul
R.C. (Robert Charles) Sproul went home to be with the Lord on Dec. 14, 2017. Thousands, perhaps millions of people have been touched by R.C. Sproul's ministry of the Word of God and his championing of the Reformed Faith.
Our own church owes its existence in part to R.C. Sproul. Several of the original members of Ridgecrest Reformed Baptist Fellowship were avid listeners and readers of R.C. Sproul ministry materials. Tim LaFromboise, for example, found out about Pastor Richard Barcellos from Palmdale (one of the men who were instrumental in the founding of Ridgecrest Reformed Baptist Church, later to become Cornerstone Bible Church) by reading an article on the perpetuity of the law in Tabletalk Magazine, the main publication of Ligonier Ministries, which R.C. Sproul founded. On a number of occasions in the life of our church, we have used DVD teaching series by R.C. Sproul including "Dust to Glory" and "The Holiness of God." Our teen Sunday school class is currently going through "Dust to Glory."
R.C. Sproul is no longer with us in this life, but his legacy and ministry will continue to live on and bear fruit in many places, including Ridgecrest.
