What Is A Confessional Church? (Boon-Sing Poh) Ratings: 0 - 0 votes


A confessional church holds to one of the historic confessions of faith that arose, either directly or indirectly, from the Reformation of the 16th century. Among the growing number of individuals and churches that claim to hold to one, or more, of the historic confessions of faith are those who waver in their commitment to those documents.

This book is intended primarily to help those who are attractedto the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, or who already claim adherence to it. Brethren in other denominations will find some of the material relevant and helpful. The first chapter gives a brief outline of the characteristics of a Reformed Baptist Church. The second chapter sketches the origin of the 1689 Confession. The third chapter argues for the legitimacy of using a confession of faith. The fourth chapter shows the difference between strict subscriptionism and loose subscriptionism and , therefore, the difference between true confessionalism and nominal confessionalism. The fifth chapter shows what are involved in holding to the spirit of 'semper reformanda' while holding firmly to the 1689 Confession. The second part of the book consists of the 1689 confession in modern English.
