Baptist Doctrine

Baptist doctrine is a reference to the teachings of the Baptist Church. For many churches affiliated with the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc,and other Baptist bodies, the Church Covenant and Baptist Articles of Faith are authoritative doctrinal documents.

On this page you will find links to the text of these doctrinal statements and my teaching notes on them.

It is a good practice for every Baptist to review their doctrinal statements at least annually, so their Baptist identification is not reduced to worship style or simply the name on the building.

I. As for the Church Covenant, this is a Baptist doctrine document that is essentially a renewal of vows among the members of the church to walk together in Christian love and maturity. The exact text may vary from church to church; however, the essence is the same.

Scriptures are reviewed and practical pointers are given about issues like “walking together in Christian love,” giving as God has given to you, and diligently studying God’s word.
