Welcome to Baptist Because!
I am a Baptist because: Baptist churches are the only ones that come up to the following tests of the New Testament churches, namely they were founded by the Lord Jesus Himself; have had an unbroken perpetuity and a wilderness history; Christ the only Law giver, Head and Lord; doctrinal conformity to the New Testament model; missionary activities, and have been the sect every where spoken against for 1900 years. With “meekness and fear,” and yet with cordial good will and sincere regard for all with whom we differ, we have given an answer to the questions asked as to the once delivered faith. If God should use it to bring one honest inquirer to the unity of faith and the fitly joining of such an one to a body of Christ or for the establishing in the faith of some who are al ready in such a body, we shall be greatly rejoiced; for as John said: “I rejoiced greatlythat I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father” (II John 1:4).
