Baptists number in the millions worldwide and frequently make news. Yet little is known about Baptists by the world in general and what is known is often misunderstood. Even some Baptists are not familiar with Baptist beliefs and practices, heritage and history.
We are recognizing the importance of what George W. Truett, famed pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, declared a century ago: “Every Baptist ought to know why he is a Baptist, and to know it from the specific commands of God’s Word. Not to have such knowledge is for our churches to be harmed in every way.”
Whatever your reason for using this site we pray that you will find it helpful and that it will in some way enrich your life.
This website is a collaborative effort of Bill Pinson and Doris Tinker, who prepared the articles and content for the website.
