Praise for the Print Edition
This is the kind of book we have long needed. It is a relatively brief and easy-to-read summary of who Free Will Baptists are, what we believe and what we do. This volume should be required reading for all pastors, missionaries, teachers and others who are involved in Free Will Baptist work on a full-time basis. Knowing who we are and what we believe can only help us serve the Lord more effectively.
