The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith
As stated in our “about” tab, While we hold to the Bible being the ultimate authority when it comes to doctrine we use historical confessions and creeds as tools to guide us through the scriptures. The Confession helps us to continue to stand on a solid biblical foundation, which, though offensive to the secular world, is the place where we find intellectual coherence of truth in the context of Word and Spirit, which is life-giving and transformational for all of thought and culture. The 1689 Holds to sound doctrinal teachings and is a great tool to add to your arsenal. https://www.the1689confession.com/
