It's time to shed the Baptist name and the association with the Baptist traditions that make void the word of God.
(1 Cor 13:11 KJV) “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
Reports are that independent fundamentalist baptist churches are on the decline. This comes as no surprise, as many of the Baptist churches have assaulted the liberty that we have in Christ with their private interpretations of scriptures to create unscriptural standards by which they judge the spirituality of others. They have substituted a form of Old Testament Christianity based upon Baptist law in place of living under the grace of Christ.
(2 Cor 3:6 KJV) “Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.”
(2 Cor 3:17 KJV) “Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”
It is time to throw off the shackles of group think and philosophies that spoil the believer and create stumbling blocks for the lost. Divisions that have been created by group imposed perversions of scripture have splintered the body of Christ and made shipwreck the faith of many.
Because of these perversions of Biblical New Testament Christianity, we can no longer be identified with the name Baptist. So, Word of Truth Baptist Church is closed, but Word of Truth Bible Church is opened to support believers as they learn to live in the liberty that Christ has purchased for them.
