Statement of Faith, What We Believe as Baptists

Download Here: Statement of Faith Study (1)

With the rise of intensity surrounding homosexuality and gender; the recent questioning of
the pillars of the doctrine of atonement; the surfacing of new loose views of Scripture that
have led to doubts regarding canonicity; the forceful promotion of evolution, and the
growing incongruity regarding our mission, it is apparent that our traditional baptist
orthodoxy is under attack. In previous generations it seems there was a fair amount that
could be left unsaid when formulating a statement of belief. However, it is the sentiment of
the Baptist Union Executive that the content of our currently used 1924 Statement of Belief
be expanded to clarify and contemporize our Baptist faith. This exercise will serve to
produce a more robust statement of belief that will better defend the tenets it was originally
drafted to promote.
