This course is designed to survey the history of the people called Baptists and their churches throughout the past two millenniums. The emphasis is on the Baptist distinctives that one could see throughout the timeline of history and to help the student see the importance of landmarks laid down by those who’ve come before.
The course will endeavour to:
1. give the student a clear understanding of our Baptist distinctives and the Scriptural reasons why we have historically adhered to those convictions and distinctives,
2. give the student an appreciation for the heritage and legacy left behind by our Baptist forefathers.
3. familiarize the men and women that were the heroes that kept the faith.
4. prove that Baptists are not a called-out assembly from the Catholic Church but are indeed a called-out assembly since the formation of the Church when Christ left Earth. To show how and why Baptists have been concerned with missions and evangelism throughout the centuries.
