Distinctly Baptist

We desire to see the retrieval of the distinctive principles of Baptist ecclesiology (See An
Abstract of Principles, pp. 3). The church is the context for the Christian life and the
atmosphere in which disciples are made. Much of our heritage has been either forgotten or
reinterpreted along progressive lines. The retrieval of our tradition is not only for the sake of
tradition, but because we believe that these principles are deeply rooted in the Scriptures
and thus represent the mind of Christ for the organization of his church. When the church
seeks to honour Christ first by submitting to his word, she begins to flourish, and the gospel
begins to flourish along with her.
