Many folks at Faith have backgrounds in churches that, if not “Baptist” by name, at least hold to or claim Baptist theology. I have hosted a lot of out-of-state visitors this summer and many of them comment on the number of Baptist churches in Anchorage. There are many!
Michael Dewalt, at Gospel-centered Musings, has written a helpful post examining the theological threads within Baptist theology. This should be useful to those of you who have experienced Baptist theology through a congregation, but have never plumbed the diverse strands of Baptist theology beginning in the seventeenth century. Michael considers the 1644 London Baptist Confession which, in my experience, many Baptist are never exposed to by their pastors and teachers, a shame given that this is such a useful statement of faith.
