BAPTIST FOUNDATIONS: CHURCH GOVERNMENT FOR AN ANTI-INSTITUTIONAL AGE

WHY I LIKE IT
If you are a Baptist and don't understand why, this book will provide strong biblical rationale why you are and should remain, what one 17th century Church of England persecutor of separatists called, "that sect that calls themselves Baptists."

Ours is an anti-polity age, perhaps more than any other time in the history of the church. Yet polity remains as important now as it was in the New Testament.
 
What then is a right or biblical polity? The contributors to this volume make an exegetical and theological case for a Baptist polity. Right polity, they argue, is congregationalism, elder leadership, diaconal service, regenerate church membership, church discipline, and a Baptist approach to the ordinances.
 
Each section explores the pastoral applications of these arguments. How do congregationalism and elder leadership work together? When should a church practice church discipline? How can one church work with another in matters of membership and discipline?  
 
To be read sequentially or used as a reference guide, Baptist Foundations provides a contemporary treatment of Baptist church government and structures, the first of its kind in decades.
