Perhaps the best-loved confessional statement of the sixteenth century, the Heidelberg Catechism has provided 'comfort in life and in death' to generations of godly Christians in Dutch churches. Through quite explicitly written from within the paedobaptist tradition, its beautiful devotional language and precise expressions of the deep things of Christian faith have been loved in many different ecclesiastical communions. Few today realize that it has served an important role in the lives of Baptists. In An Orthodox Catechism, Hercules Collins took these statements and adapted (or perhaps supplemented) them to accord with his own convictions of believer's baptism. The end result is a wonderful, practical, and helpful statement for Baptist churches. (From the Foreword)
Join us on Thursday nights at 7:00 PM in room 106 as we work our way through this warm and wonderful catechism.
