**********

I can’t tell you of my appreciation of you and your work. It wasn’t until January of 1995 that I learned of your existence as one of the “remnant.” Thanks to our Merciful God.

I felt like a “man without a country.” As God began revealing His Doctrine of Grace to me, I began to realize how inconsistent was the “Christianity” I had been taught, in particular, in the Southern Baptist Convention. It wasn’t until I laid aside all of man’s writings for a period of time and read the Bible straight through in chronological order that I began to see the consistency of God and the inconsistency of what I “believed.”

Since that time, I have diligently sought the true faith and realize that I have not uncovered something new, but something we have lost. We’ve lost it in America (no fear of God), and we have lost it in the SBC (man rules).

I found myself looking for like-minded believers. Most obviously to me, truth was found in Presbyterian circles and I determined I might belong there-until now. Thank you again! I am so excited to help make others aware so that they too may be encouraged….

********** I have been a Christian for three years now. I have been a Southern Baptist for a little over a year. Through study of the Bible and a pamphlet published by Banner of Truth Trust entitled “What is the Reformed Faith?” by John R. deWitt, I have come to believe and accept the “doctrines of grace” (Calvinism). It thrilled by heart to hear that there is a group that is advocating a return to more Orthodox theology.

I understand that Baptists (including Southern Baptists) were grounded in the doctrinal foundation of Calvinism. So, with that in mind I am glad to see a group like the Southern Baptist Founders Conference. I am interested in subscribing to the Founders Journal. Enclosed is my check for the amount of $12.00. I would ask that you please send me some additional information about the Founders Conference.

Yours in Christ,

********** I write to you because I recently ran across a copy of the Winter/Spring issue of the Founders Journal and was elated to read the articles about returning to the old paths. God’s timing is perfect as usual. I was saved on February 19, 1995, after spending most of my life in a Southern Baptist church serving as a deacon. I am 59 years old and excited about what happened to me and when I read the journal. I praised God for my heart goes out to those trapped in the church, lost as I was because the truth is not being proclaimed….

Yours in Christ,

********** Here at Southeastern Seminary, myself and many friends thank you for your work in promoting our Lord as a God of grace. We applaud your efforts towards correct theology. Let me know how I may be of any help to you. Is it still possible to get a free copy of the sesquicentennial issue? Also send information on how to join your organization as well as the Forgotten Spurgeon information.

Thank-you!

There is no organization which can be joined. The Founders Conference is a loose fellowship of pastors, church leaders, and other interested parties. We have no membership. The work is overseen by a planning committee. The only things which one may “sign up” for are the annual conference and a subscription to the Founders Journal.

********** I received my copies of the Founders Journal and wanted to let you know how pleased I was. I will be praying for you as you prepare to answer the many questions and requests you will surely receive as a result of this excellent publication. I gave one copy to a friend who serves here with CBF. Pray that this issue will bring about a profound change in the theology of many of our missionaries, both in Indonesia and around the world. Please let me know if there is anyway I can help in addition to my prayers for you and your efforts with the journal.

Yours in Christ,
