This new collection proclaims Baptist identity from the pulpit!
Without laying exclusive claim to any one doctrine, Baptists have concocted a collective of beliefs that are distinctive and defining. Unfortunately, in an increasingly post-denominational age, fewer Baptists are aware of the power and potential of their own witness.
When Baptists celebrated the 400th anniversary of their distinctive tradition in 2010, faculty of the George W. Truett Theological Seminary at Baylor University delivered a unique chapel series to proclaim the Baptist identity. Beginning with those sermons and expanding upon them, this book offers this generation a relevant understanding of Baptist faith and identity, based on the proclamation of 14 classic and emerging distinctives:
• Salvation by faith • Authority of Scripture • Soul competency• Priesthood of believers • Vocation and calling • Christian mission • Believers' church • Congregational polity • Local church autonomy • Believer's baptism • Lord's Supper • Religious liberty • Separation of church and state • Social justice
