David Burchard Quotable Quotes Leave a Comment

Benjamin Keach:

A Church of Christ, according to the Gospel-Institution, is a Congregation of Godly Christians, who as a Stated-Assembly (being first baptized upon the Profession of the Faith) do by mutual agreement and consent give themselves up to the Lord, and one to another, according to the Will of God; and do ordinarily meet together in one Place, for the Public Service and Worship of God; among whom the Word of God and Sacraments are duly administered, according to Christ’s Institution.

from pg. 44 of James Renihan’s Edification and Beauty: The Practical Ecclesiology of the English Particular Baptists, 1675-1705
