Baptist Curriculum on the Crucial Role of Baptist Doctrine and Baptist History in Contending for the Faith, in Spreading the Gospel, and in Advancing Religious and Civil Liberty


 

Baptist History CurriculumThe Origin of this Baptist Curriculum

Pastor John Jones, alarmed over Baptist churches dropping “Baptist” from their names, saw a need for members at Lighthouse Baptist Church to study and to better understand what is distinctive about Baptists in both doctrine and history. Since church member Terry Lee Hamilton loves history, Pastor Jones asked Terry to prepare lessons and teach a Sunday School class on Baptist history and distinctives.

Terry taught the course in 2001, and then again in 2006, updating and upgrading his lessons. Pastor Jones came up with the idea of preparing these Sunday School lessons for publication for use in other Independent Baptist churches where concerned pastors desire church members to study and to better understand what is distinctive about Baptists in both doctrine and history.

Distinctives of this Baptist Curriculum

The First 2,000 Years of Baptist History: Why You Should Be a Bible-Believing Baptist is unlike any other course on Baptist history and distinctives.

    • Each lesson is written by a Baptist attorney who has practiced law since 1977 and has fought in courtrooms and legislatures for religious freedom and separation of church and state since 1984.
    • Attorney Terry Hamilton’s Sunday School lessons include insights on court cases in which he has fought, as well as insights from leading U.S. Supreme Court cases on freedom of religion and separation of church and state.
    • Each lesson concludes with Personal Application, where the student is challenged to apply what he has learned to (1) his personal walk with Jesus, family life, and church life, (2) contending for the faith, (3) spreading the Gospel, and (4) advancing religious and civil liberty in America and around the world.
