This ancient document includes 32 articles of Christian faith and practice. In 1855, Charles Spurgeon republished The Baptist Confession of 1689 as a manual for members of his church. His written introduction emphasizes the great importance of this remarkable fundamental statement of faith. This book is published not as a collection of strict rules and not as codes of faith, but as a guide to identifying, as expected in faith and building in righteousness. Here the reader will also find a concise summary of the theology, and based on the biblical evidence, will be able to “give the answer of the required account in his hope.” Don’t be ashamed of your faith! Remember that the symbol of faith is the gospel of the martyrs of the first Christians, the gospel of the reformers and all those who deeply and sincerely love God more than their own lives. Above all, live in Christ Jesus, be perfected in Him, accepting no doctrine, except that which finds His approval and is sanctified by the Holy Spirit and contains the Word of God unshakably.
