The 2006 Southern Baptist Founders Conference

The national Southern Baptist Founders Conference was hosted this year by Bethel Baptist Church in Owasso, OK. The theme was “The Gospel of the Grace of God.”

“The entire Gospel — as Scripture communicates it — must be set before unbelievers for their conversion, speakers at the 24th annual Southern Baptist Founders Conference said as they examined the doctrines that compose the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” [READ MORE of this report from the Baptist Press by Jeff Robinson.]

“The Gospel has been lost at various times during the history of the church and sometimes is hidden in contemporary churches but it will not be lost forever because Christ has promised to build His church through the proclamation of the Gospel, Fred Malone told attendees of the 24th Annual Southern Baptist Founders Conference July 11-14.” [READ MORE of this report from the Baptist Press by Jeff Robinson.]

You can purchase audio of the conference messages from Sound Word.

Life in the Body of Christ: Privileges and Responsibilities in the Local Church
by Curtis C. Thomas

“Curtis Thomas has given us a gift, a stimulus to edifying reflection and action on every pertinent aspect of corporate and individual responsibility and privilege to be pursued in the life of a local church.”

Thomas J. Nettles

“Curtis Thomas has condensed decades of church ministry into a few dozen, easy-to-understand pages. Life in the Body of Christ is versatile enough to work as a text in a New Christian’s Class to ground spiritual babes in the Christian life, in a New Member’s Class, or in a small group study to help believers at all levels of maturity grow as part of Christ’s church.”

Donald S. Whitney

Curtis C. Thomas is a retired pastor, having served in Reformed Baptist churches for 30 years, the final 14 years at the Bible Church of Little Rock, AR. He is co-author of Romans: An Interpretive Outline and The Five Points of Calvinism: Defined, Defended, Documented.


My Journey in Grace
by Terrell Suggs

“The Lord began to use the writings of such men as C. H. Spurgeon and A. W. Pink to fill me with truth. The Scriptures began to open as never before. I was thrilled beyond words. God became more real to me than ever and the gospel of His sovereign grace virtually jumped off the pages with clarity and power.”

“The more I studied Baptist history and the theology of our founders, the more I saw that I believed what they believed. I am forever indebted to these men who have given us some of the finest theological works in all of Christian history.”

“Indeed I came to see that the doctrines of grace were not incidental in the lives of Baptists from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries. The rafters of Southern Baptist churches once rang with these great truths. Seminary and college professors were meticulous in teaching young preachers to articulate the gospel of sovereign grace. This was the gospel that Baptists carried to the ends of the earth. These doctrines were the very foundation of everything in Baptist life. Oh, that it would be so again!”

Terrell D. Suggs has served as pastor of churches in Alabama, Mississippi and Oklahoma. He is currently Director of Missions of the Bryan Baptist Association in Bryan County, Oklahoma.

Feature Hymn: Come Boldly to The Throne of Grace

“Come Boldly to a Throne of Grace” was written by Daniel Herbert (1751 – 1833), a congregational minister who served at Sudbury in Suffolk. It is a passionate and comforting call to all who feel the weight of their sin to come and find mercy at the feet of Christ. [READ MORE]
