The Baptist Confession of Faith

Chapter 1
Of The Holy Scriptures

Paragraph 5. We may be moved and induced by the testimony of the church of God to a high and reverent esteem of the Holy Scriptures; and the heavenliness of the matter, the efficacy of the doctrine, and the majesty of the style, the consent of all the parts, the scope of the whole (which is to give all glory to God), the full discovery it makes of the only way of man’s salvation, and many other incomparable excellencies, and entire perfections thereof, are arguments whereby it does abundantly evidence itself to be the Word of God; yet notwithstanding, our full persuasion and assurance of the infallible truth, and divine authority thereof, is from the inward work of the Holy Spirit bearing witness by and with the Word in our hearts.

  1. it is only a great shame that a few years ago the Baptist community all over the world saw how the American Baptist Unions became so strong they pushed for the trintiarian doctrine and made lots of our fellow brethren and sisters, like me, to leave the Baptists because the majority preferred to follow human doctrines instead of keeping to the Word of God.

    1. I’m not familiar with that controversy. The wording of your comment appears to imply you do not believe in the Trinity. Would you mind clarifying.

      1. Yes I only believe in One True God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Jesus and his first century followers.

        Like many of my colleagues and fellow brothers and sisters I belonged to what we considered to be the continuation of the first century ecclesial system of worshippers of that One Divine Creator.

        In Belgium 1700 people were put on the stake in the 16th century, burned to death because they believed in only One God and not the trinity and in the baptism in the name of Christ as whitewashing for our sins. As followers of that believe many in Europe, but also at the other continents stayed for a long time Baptist accepting and giving all authority to the Bible and not to human authorisation and not giving in into human doctrines.

        According to God His own Word Jesus is His only begotten beloved son, the send one from God, who received authority from God and who became a mediator between God and man.
