1677/89 London Baptist Confession of Faith

Author: Anonymous

After the British Parliament passed the Toleration Act of 1698, which enabled religious freedom and plurality throughout the land, churches independent from the Church of England began publishing their doctrinal statements openly. The Baptist Confession of Faith, drafted in 1677, outlines the views of the Particular Baptists, a Baptist subgroup characterized by a Calvinist theology of salvation. The Confession helped the Particular Baptists to unify and expand their church, especially in colonial America. Calvinistic Baptists, including many Sovereign Grace Baptist, Southern Baptist, and Reformed Baptist congregations, remain some of the most influential Christian communities in the United States to this day.
