Baptist Covenant Theology

     For the longest time, I really didn't know what Covenant Theology was, especially not Baptist Covenant Theology. I had heard some objections raised against CT in general, and looked up a chart[1] that explained a few things. However, it wasn't until I ran across these audio files from the 2005 SBC Founders' conference (not to mention some of Sam Waldron's recent articles) did I really understand it properly, and I'm definitely convinced by it. I'm happy to say that I'm a real Reformed Baptist now, not just in my soteriology. :)
     In any case, these audio files are well worth your time, and if you are looking for some good, modern information about Reformed Baptist CT then you're in for a treat!


UPDATE (June 13, 2007): Please see the comments section for an important update.

1. The chart is available in PDF format here. It was a document from the website of the church listed in the document, but that website is no longer on the internet.



  • Waldron's book or tract, A Reformed Baptist Manifesto, is also excellent.

    God Bless

  • Howard:

    That's one I'd love to get my hands on pretty soon. The audio was great, but I'd like to have something in print in front of me to examine.

  • Something I should note here:

    My current church leans more toward Progressive Dispensationalism rather than Baptist CT. That being the case, I wanted to make perfectly clear that by taking the stance that I have (which I am still learning about by the way), I am in NO WAY attempting to undermine my elders or the stance of my church.

    I am also not seeking to change the doctrinal stance of my church, and planned on limiting any conversations I would have about it to be between the elders (probably just the senior pastor) and myself.

    There. Just in case there was any ambiguity, I wanted to make that clear.

  • Hey Dave old friend,

    Looking at the chart that you linked to confirmed what I expected. I fit closest with NCT (New Covenant Theology). I haven't listened to the audio yet, but I've downloaded them. Looks like good stuff.

  • Jerad:

    I thought that myself too -- until I learned what CT actually meant by a few terms and what the teaching of the Covenants truly was, not to mention the NCT dismissal of the law of God (even the moral law to a large extent if not completely). Worth listening to.

  • By the way, the book that Howard mentioned as well as others from a Reformed Baptist perspective can be found at Solid Ground Christian books at this link.
