We acknowledge the Scriptures to be the only infallible authority for faith and practice. The following confessional documents simply express in clear terms a concise summary of what we believe the Bible teaches. We fully subscribe to The 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith.
We also recommend The Baptist Catechism (1695) as an excellent resource for church life and family worship.
Note: The 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith and The Baptist Catechism may be found in printed form here, and The Baptist Catechism set to music here. We recommend these as two excellent resources for personal edification, discipleship, and family worship.
Some Words of Wisdom
"This ancient document [The 1689 London Baptist Confession] is the most excellent epitome of the things most surely believed among us. … It is an excellent, though not inspired, expression of the teaching of those Holy Scriptures by which all confessions are to be measured. We hold to the humbling truths of God's sovereign grace in the salvation of lost sinners. Salvation is through Christ alone and by faith alone." - C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892. Baptist Pastor in London.)
"I am persuaded that the use of a good Catechism in all our families will be a great safeguard against the increasing errors of the times..." - C. H. Spurgeon (1834-1892. Baptist Pastor in London.)
"There never was a man in the world without a creed. What is a creed? A creed is what you believe. What is a confession? It is a declaration of what you believe. That declaration may be oral or it may be committed to writing, but the creed is there either expressed or implied." - B.H. Carrol (1843-1914. Baptist Pastor and Theologian. Texas, USA.)
"The modern cry 'less creed and more liberty' is the degeneration from the vertebrate to the jelly fish, and means less unity and less morality, and it means more heresy." - B.H. Carrol (1843-1914. Baptist Pastor and Theologian. Texas, USA.)
