Courteous Reader: It is now many years since divers of us (with other sober Christians then living, and walking in the way of the Lord, that we profess) did conceive ourselves to be under a necessity of publishing a Confession, of our Faith, for the information and satisfaction of those that did not thoroughly understand what our principles were, or had entertained prejudices against our profession, by reason of the strange representation of them by some men of note who had taken very wrong measures, and accordingly led others into misapprehension of us and them. They made some small additions relevant to their situation, but left the wording on foreknowledge exactly as it was in the 1689 Confession. 3:6 55:10, 11 3 Rom. 5:21 1:20; Jer. 18 1 Cor. 51:8,12,14 1:17; Deut. 1:19 2 Eph. 6:11,12 Besides the law written in their hearts, they received a command not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil,9 which while they kept, they were happy in their communion with God, and had dominion over the creatures.10 1:20-22, Paragraph 3.

Although the price of redemption was not actually paid by Christ until after His incarnation, yet the virtue, efficacy, and benefit thereof were communicated to the elect in all ages, successively from the beginning of the world, in and by those promises, types, and sacrifices wherein He was revealed, and signified to be the seed which should bruise the serpent's head;34 and the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world,35 being the same yesterday, and today and for ever.36 Jun 1 Of the Holy Scriptures Brian Malcolm. 2:6; Luke 1:33 116:2 8 1 Cor. 7 1 Kings 8:27; Jer. 6:17, Dan. 39 John 17:6; Eph. 6:11,12; Isa. 26 Matt. 46:10,11; Ps. 4 Gal.

As all believers are bound to join themselves to particular churches, when and where they have opportunity so to do; so all that are admitted unto the privileges of a church, are also under the censures and government thereof, according to the rule of Christ.25 1:3; Eph. Saints by profession are bound to maintain a holy fellowship and communion in the worship of God, and in performing such other spiritual services as tend to their mutual edification;4 as also in relieving each other in outward things according to their several abilities, and necessities;5 which communion, according to the rule of the gospel, though especially to be exercised by them, in the relation wherein they stand, whether in families,6 or churches,7 yet, as God offers opportunity, is to be extended to all the household of faith, even all those who in every place call upon the name of the Lord Jesus; nevertheless their communion one with another as saints, does not take away or infringe the title or propriety which each man has in his goods and possessions.8 Chapter 3. The books commonly called Apocrypha, not being of divine inspiration, are no part of the canon or rule of the Scripture, and, therefore, are of no authority to the church of God, nor to be any otherwise approved or made use of than other human writings.6 2 Deut. 3:26; Eph. The denial of the cup to the people, worshipping the elements, the lifting them up, or carrying them about for adoration, and reserving them for any pretended religious use, are all contrary to the nature of this ordinance, and to the institution of Christ.6 4:3 It was based on the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) and the Savoy Declaration (1658), with modifications to reflect Baptist views on church organization and baptism. 1:19,20 2 Acts 3:22 7 Ps.

In the beginning it pleased God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Heb. 15:42,43, Paragraph 3. It is called the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, or the Second London Confession as it was the second confession published by Reformed Baptists in London. THE BAPTIST CONFESSION OF FAITH 8. 8:28, Paragraph 6. Let your lives adorn your faith, let your example adorn your creed. 2:30; 2 Kings 8:12,13 3:16-19; 1 Thess. 29:4 7 Acts 17:31 16 Isa. What is the Trinity? 7:1; Heb. 3:21 10:29-31 119:6,128, Paragraph 4. 18 Gal. 28:18-20; Eph. 3 Rom. This sanctification is throughout the whole man,7 yet imperfect in this life; there abides still some remnants of corruption in every part,8 wherefrom arises a continual and irreconcilable war; the flesh lusting against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.9 Moreover, man having brought himself under the curse of the law by his fall, it pleased the Lord to make a covenant of grace,2 wherein He freely offers unto sinners life and salvation by Jesus Christ, requiring of them faith in Him, that they may be saved;3 and promising to give unto all those that are ordained unto eternal life, His Holy Spirit, to make them willing and able to believe.4 Of the Assurance of Grace and Salvation 4 Ezek. 1:1 9 John 10:16; John 12:32 Man, by his fall into a state of sin, has wholly lost all ability of will to any spiritual good accompanying salvation;4 so as a natural man, being altogether averse from that good, and dead in sin,5 is not able by his own strength to convert himself, or to prepare himself thereunto.6 And though they may, through the temptation of Satan and of the world, the prevalency of corruption remaining in them, and the neglect of means of their preservation, fall into grievous sins, and for a time continue therein,9 whereby they incur God's displeasure and grieve his Holy Spirit,10 come to have their graces and comforts impaired,11 have their hearts hardened, and their consciences wounded,12 hurt and scandalize others, and bring temporal judgments upon themselves,13 yet shall they renew their repentance and be preserved through faith in Christ Jesus to the end.14 7 Acts 27:31, 44; Isa. 18 Heb. 11:26 10 John 6:45; 1 Cor. 7. Are divine sovereignty and human responsibility incompatible? 14:26,40, Paragraph 7. 6 1 Cor. 6:14,15 The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith in Modern English. The members of these churches are saints by calling, visibly manifesting and evidencing (in and by their profession and walking) their obedience unto that call of Christ;12 and do willingly consent to walk together, according to the appointment of Christ; giving up themselves to the Lord, and one to another, by the will of God, in professed subjection to the ordinances of the Gospel.13 31 Acts 10:42; Rom. 10 Lam. 6:4, Paragraph 2. Zechariah 11:33 The Lord Jesus, in His human nature thus united to the divine, in the person of the Son, was sanctified and anointed with the Holy Spirit above measure,13 having in Him all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge;14 in whom it pleased the Father that all fullness should dwell,15 to the end that being holy, harmless, undefiled,16 and full of grace and truth,17 He might be throughly furnished to execute the office of mediator and surety;18 which office He took not upon himself, but was thereunto called by His Father;19 who also put all power and judgement in His hand, and gave Him commandment to execute the same.20 16 Gal. 1 Gen. 1:27; Eccles. John Tomkins, Minister, Abingdon, Berks 1:22, 23 This promise of Christ, and salvation by him, is revealed only by the Word of God;3 neither do the works of creation or providence, with the light of nature, make discovery of Christ, or of grace by him, so much as in a general or obscure way;4 much less that men destitute of the revelation of Him by the promise or gospel, should be enabled thereby to attain saving faith or repentance.5 1:5 7:18, 23 Carroll and Robust Confessionalism. 35 Rev. 42:1; 1 Pet.

As Christ would have us to be certainly persuaded that there shall be a day of judgment, both to deter all men from sin,7 and for the greater consolation of the godly in their adversity,8 so will he have the day unknown to men, that they may shake off all carnal security, and be always watchful, because they know not at what hour the Lord will come,9 and may ever be prepared to say, Come Lord Jesus; come quickly.10  Amen. 2 Matt. 8:20 These good works, done in obedience to God’s commandments, are the fruits and evidences of a true and lively faith;3 and by them believers manifest their thankfulness,4 strengthen their assurance,5 edify their brethren, adorn the profession of the gospel,6 stop the mouths of the adversaries, and glory God,7 whose workmanship they are, created in Christ Jesus thereunto,8 that having their fruit unto holiness they may have the end eternal life.9 5:17; Luke 17:10, Paragraph 5.
