Excerpt from Thirteenth Report of the American Baptist Home Mission Society, Presented by Executive Board at the Anniversary at Providence, R. I., April 29, 1845: With the Treasurer's Report From these and'other statements, more in detail, furnished by good authority, we have been led to' regard the Home Mission enterprise as possessing ah importance in the system of behevo lent operations, which but few, comparatively, are yet prepared to appreciate. That importance has been often set forth in all the imagery of language, and the sober reality of facts; but the imagery has soon lost its charm, and the facts their force, in the distance through which they were seen. The story of the strug gles of feeble churches, at the distance of a thousand miles, how ever told, may excite sympathy; but familiarity with the pecu liar. Circumstances which cause those struggles, rs essential to a just conception of the importance of the effort which must be made in their behalf.

Baptists in America

Author: Bill J. Leonard

ISBN: 0231127030

From Little Dove Old Regular Baptist Church, up a hollow in the Appalachian Mountains, with its 25-member congregation, to the 18,000-strong Saddleback Valley Church in Lake Forest, California, where hymns appear on wide-screen projectors; and from Jerry Falwell, Jesse Helms, and Tim LaHaye to Martin Luther King Jr., Jesse Jackson, Bill Clinton, and Maya Angelou, Baptists are a study in contrasts. At first glance, Baptist theology seems classically Protestant in its emphasis on the Trinity, the incarnation of Jesus Christ, the authority of Scripture, salvation by faith alone, and baptism by immersion. Yet interpretation and implementation of these beliefs have made Baptists one of the most fragmented denominations in the United States. Indeed, they are often characterized as a people who "multiply by dividing." This book introduces readers to this fascinating and diverse denomination, offering a sociological portrait of a group numbering some thirty million members. Bill J. Leonard explores Baptist history, beliefs, practices and disputes, as well as contributions to American culture and the religious landscape. Leonard also discusses the major controversial issues within the denomination, including race, the interpretation of scripture, the role of women in the church, the separation of church and state, religion and politics, ethics, and sexuality. -- From publisher description.

Fullerism as Opposed to Calvinism

A Historical and Theological Comparison of the Missiology of Andrew Fuller and John Calvin

Author: A. Chadwick Mauldin

Calvinism and its impact upon Baptist and other free-church traditions is an issue of perennial importance. Indeed, much ink has been employed throughout the years for the purpose of considering just this topic. Obviously Calvinism is a complete doctrinal system, and it bears upon many other areas of theological concern beyond the doctrine of salvation. While many Baptists have had a long and historic association with Calvinistic soteriology, Calvinism's approach to ecclesiology and missiology should leave most self conscious Baptists dissatisfied at best. This book provides a missiological comparison of Fullerism and Calvinism. Andrew Fuller or Fullerism (while admittedly a form of Calvinism) is shown in this book to be an exciting and vibrant alternative to historic Reformed theology-particularly for Baptists and other free-church traditions. Fuller made a tremendous theological contribution in his day; through his writings he established the doctrinal rationale for indiscriminate gospel proclamation (a concept that was heavily under attack in eighteenth-century Baptist life). Consequently, this book hopes to encourage its readers to contemplate the lack of precision in the term Calvinism when used as a Baptistic nomenclature and to promote Fullerism (with its acute missiological emphasis) as a more helpful theological descriptor for the Baptist.

Excerpt from The Baptist Missionary Magazine, 1905, Vol. 85 The announcement that such an effort was about to be made was greeted with joy by our missionaries abroad, especially by those in charge of our educational institutions, who had been plodding patiently on for years under serious limitations. It is no light task, however, which is proposed, and the Executive Committee are considering carefully how the desired end may successfully and wisely be attained. A committee has been appointed to have the matter in charge and a meeting is planned for the near future. We hope that our people as a whole will rally to the work and be ready to respond generously when the call comes. Success in this undertaking will enable us to meet the opportunities God has placed before us in a manner commensurate with our ability, and pleasing to our Lord and Master.
