Please note: We include here a wide variety of resources that might assist you in personal or professional study. Please remember that all such resources are merely some individual’s interpretations of the Holy. We aren’t bound to any of these resources but offer them here as a convenient resource.

In this list we are trying to make available some resources that are occasionally helpful. Don’t consider inclusion here to be a simple endorsement of the contents of any resource. We think that if any absolutely perfect resource were ever posted to the internet even our computers would cry out.

Creeds and Confessions Return to top

Baptists are historically a non-creedal people. Grace Baptist Church is proud of the resistance of most American Baptists to the push toward doctrinal conformity, particularly in recent battles to enforce an anti-gay theology in churches. The creeds listed here are only listed with study needs in mind, not to imply that we prioritize these creedal formations in our worship or study together.
