We are a Reformed Baptist church in Atlanta (Lawrenceville), Georgia. We are thoroughly Bible believing and identify with the teachings of Christ and His apostles that were recaptured at the time of the Protestant Reformation and summarized in the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith (en espanol).
We Are “Reformed Baptists”
Our church is doctrinally based in that realm of theology that was recovered during the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century – known today as ‘Reformed Theology.’ We recognize that we currently live in a difficult time of church history. Due to the prevailing liberal culture, the impact of entertainment and the apathy of the church, there is the tendency for the church to react with a pragmatic approach to evangelism, worship and ecclesiology. We reject these new paradigms in theology and affirm that what the church needs in our present day is a new reformation and recovery of lost ground.
Over time, words lose meaning. In a very real way, this has happened to the word “baptist.” We have chosen to use this word to describe our church because we are classical baptists in the historic sense. We identify with the English Particular Baptists of the 17th Century in our commitment to:
- Dedication to the authority of Scripture
- Calvinistic understanding of the gospel
- Covenantal understanding of Scripture
- Elder-led church government
- Subscription to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith
We exist locally as a body of believers, but we realize that we are viably connected to all other believers throughout history. Furthermore, we recognize that we exist not only geographically as a local congregation, but as a specific fellowship within a distinct point in redemptive history. Therefore, we acknowledge our fellowship with the one true fellowship of believers throughout the ages and in the age to come.
