Introduction by Dr. HL Champion – “I am encouraging as many of you that which to get a comprehensive doctrinal record of Bible Teaching principles take a reading on the following men of God. Then order as many of these booklets as you can for your members .” What godly men are saying about Why Baptist?

The Presbyterian USA Denomination has for decades shifted to the  far left of Biblical guidelines and sensible morality. This Associated Press release is uncut and does not fully represent the positions of Baptist.Org. It is just the news. The implications are numerous. It goes without saying, “That it needs to be said”; America is going straight to hell in a church offering plate.  Good people in so many Church groups have supported the very antithesis of their beliefs. But,...
