WHO ARE THE BAPTISTS?
The people of God who today are distinguished by the Baptist name have not always been called that way. Towards the beginning of the 17th century this name was given to a group of independent churches (without hierarchical organization) in England because they practiced baptism by total immersion of the body in water, and this only to the people who previously gave a profession of personal faith in Christ as your Saviour.
But the Baptist history did not begin at that time; in fact, these churches were the historical successors of those dissident Christian churches that since apostolic times have been defending on the basis of the use of the Holy Scriptures as the only rule of faith and practice in the Christian life the following rights:
- The freedom of conscience regarding the profession of the religious belief of the individual.
- The separation of church and state. The nature of the spiritual church should not interfere in politics or the state in church affairs.
- The autonomy of each local church in terms of its own government. The New Testament churches were independent, ruling themselves.
- The voluntary and personal nature to become a member or not of a church. Christ founded a free church, he never wanted it to be mandatory.
- Those churches, clearly biblical in their doctrine, suffered persecution throughout the centuries for not complying with the demands of the majority church that often used secular power in their eagerness to eradicate what she considered error.
But God is faithful and there have always been believers on earth willing to risk their own lives to defend biblical principles before bowing the knee to the traditions of men.
Baptists have multiplied in recent centuries because of their missionary zeal. Today there are about 30,000,000 Baptists worldwide.
WHAT DO THE BAPTIST TEACH?
Baptist churches accept the following statement as the foundation of the Christian faith:
- The Holy Bible is divinely inspired and infallible. It is the eternal revelation of God to man.
- The Word of God (Holy Bible) is our only authority of faith and practice.
- God is One, yet he subsists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; that is, the Holy Trinity.
- Christ is the Son of God who became incarnate to become our Saviour.
- Christ was born humanly from Mary, being a virgin.
- Christ offered himself as the only and perfect sacrifice once for the sin of mankind.
- Christ is the only mediator between God and man, and now intercedes for us.
- Man is a sinner by nature and by his own actions.
- The Salvation of the soul is by the grace of God without adding any work. It is received only by faith in the redeeming person and work of Christ.
- Salvation is eternal from the moment when the believer repents of his sins and of his works of self-righteousness to receive Christ by faith.
- The believer is baptized by virtue of his profession of personal faith in Christ and in obedience to his commandment.
- Each believer is his own priest and enjoys direct access to the Father through the Son.
- Every believer has a duty to live his life according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.
- The righteous (saved and regenerated believers) will go out to the resurrection of life and the unrighteous (unbelievers) to eternal damnation.
- The second coming of Christ in glory to establish his kingdom on earth is imminent.
