"What Does a Baptist Believe?" by Matthew B. Gage

Students and others have continually asked for a brief statement of what Baptists believe. I just discovered this and it is NOT original with me and I have no idea who Matthew Gage is. It uses the acrostic Baptists.

Biblical Authority, 2 Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 1:23-25

Autonomy of the Local Church, Revelation 1:11,20

Priesthood of the Believer, I Timothy 2:5; I Peter 2:5,9

Two Ordinances (Baptism/Lord's Supper) Acts 8:36-37; I Corinthians 11:23-31

Individual Soul Liberty, Matthew 16:27; 2 Peter 3:9

Separation of Church and State, Acts 5:29; Romans 13

Two Officers (Pastor/Deacon) I Timothy 3:2-13

Salvation by Grace Through Faith, John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9
