Why I am Reformed Baptist

I did not stumble upon the doctrines held by Reformed Baptist by accident. I came out of independent charismatic churches and out of a system known as dispensationalism. I learned Reformed Theology from listening to the well known teacher and Professor named R. C. Sproul.

When I came to the knowledge of Reformed Theology I began to read everything I could get my hands on that would teach me the Reformed understanding of the Bible. Therefore, I leaned heavily towards the infant baptism point of view at first. I struggled and read and listened to multiple sermons on the subject of infant baptism and believer’s only baptism.

After a while of struggling and moving back and forth between the two positions, I came down hard on the side of the Reformed Baptist views of scripture and the sacraments of the church. I would now consider myself a follower of those early American Puritans who came to the knowledge of the truth on baptism and switched their views from infant baptism to believer’s only baptism.

I am Reformed, Baptist, Covenantal, and Amillennial.

 

I point you to a sermon by James White that explains “Why I am reformed Baptist?”

      Thank you for your comment.

      I suppose we are real close on the way we view scripture.

    Thanks for sharing your story. My story is very similar, and I hold similar views. I too began to understand the doctrines of grace through the teaching of Sproul. Praise God for his ministry!

    It was Wayne Grudem’s Systematic Theology that started triggered a move from Arminianism. I took a class on TULIP with John Piper. From there I could not stop. Sproul, Horton, Keller, Carson,Packer works led me to Edward, Owen, Calvin, Luther, and Augustine.

    The doctrine of Grace changed everything. My relationship with God, wife, Church and ministry.

    Thank you for a great post.
