The Five Points of Reformed Baptist Churches

As pastor of a small church still in transition (I am told it takes 7 to 12 years to revitalize a church; I have been pastor for only five), I appreciated Pastor David Charles’ post on “The Five Points of Reformed Baptist Churches.” I found it refreshing to know that as a church, we have the right foundation and are on the right track toward making sure that this foundation is being realized at Zion.

I recommend reading these points and thinking about how each of these points is worked out in your church and how you are living out each of these in your role as church member.

One note: Under III.C., the word “catholic” does not mean “Roman Catholic,” it is used in the older sense of “general” or “universal” emphasizing that the foundation of the faith that we believe and preach are the things held in common among true Christian believers in every age.
