Many people, even life-long Southern Baptists, have not been made aware of the strong, doctrinal roots from which the Baptist denomination emerged. In two 45-minute presentations, Dr. Tom Nettles, a teacher of Baptist history since 1976, traces the influence of these doctrines in Baptist life from the 17th century to the present, particularly focusing on Southern Baptists. He shows how many of these foundational beliefs have been weakened with time and urges a return to the principles espoused by the denomination's founding fathers and the Word of God.
Introduction by Dr. Roy Hargrave (Senior Pastor, Riverbend Community Church)
Session 1: "Baptists and Grace: A Fruitful Foundation"
Session 2: "Baptists and Grace: Urgency for the Future"
