The greatest contribution of Baptists to orthodox Christianity may well be in the area of ecclesiology. From their earliest beginnings, Baptists have been thoroughly committed to planting and building churches that are completely faithful to the New Testament. At the dawn of a new millennium, Baptists must continue to follow biblical ideals so that Baptist churches will continue to the kingdom outposts for the next generation.
The Baptist Way serves as an introduction to the principles that distinguish Baptists from other Christians and offers ecclesiological distinctions of healthy Baptist churches. Some of these distinctions were once peculiarly Baptist ideas that are now more widely held among other groups. For Stan Norman, healthy Baptist churches intentionally and diligently adhere to their Baptist distinctives, and this book examines their importance.
