A Discussion of the Seventeenth Century Particular Baptist Confessions of Faith by Richard P. Belcher and Anthonly Mattia

Print

Most Baptists today probably have no idea that Baptists of the seventeenth century wrote two confessions, one in 1644, the other in 1689. These confessions bear a remarkable resemblance to the Westminster Confession of 1646. As those of the Reformed persuasion know, the Westminster Confession is highly Calvinistic. What may surprise many is how Calvinistic the Baptists of that same era were, especially in light of the Arminianism that is associated with most Baptist churches today.

The particular purpose of this little book is to demonstrate that the two Baptist confessions maintained the same Reformed view of the Old Testament Law. If you have any interest in that subject this is your book, otherwise, skip it.
