Preaching & Sacraments: Means of Grace

In Reformed Baptist Fellowship on March 31, 2012 at 5:37 pm

By the means of the preached Word and the sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, our gracious God meets with us in public worship. By these means, God the Father stoops down to our level as little children in order to communicate to us as well as to bring us into intimate fellowship with Himself. Although these means are not outwardly flashy, exciting, or even seemingly powerful to accomplish what we say they do, they are God’s chosen means to sustain His weary pilgrims in the wilderness and to strengthen their faith. (Daniel R. Hyde, Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims, 141)

  1. that’s a really good book

  2. i came out of the presbyterian background and just recently began to go to a reformed baptist so im not very acquainted with baptist far i see a differance in covenant theology. baptism, which i do believe in the baptism of the believer.what is widespread in the p.c.a on the covenants is not the historic presbyterian view.our departure from the p.c.a had to do with ,there was an assumption that all communing members were in fact true believers and there was no preaching to the unconverted.i would appreciate someone explaining the baptist baptist up bringing was arminan man centered to the core.i know this comment isnt about the sacrements per say, but in some ways it is relative having heard that covenent children{baptised children] were intitled to the lords table simply because they have covenent parents.

  3. i forgot to say how much i appreciate this site.i have a reformed baptist friend who is trying help me understand the baptist views so this site is also very helpful.also i would like to know whether there are any present day reformed baptist that teach the doctrine of seeking as taught by jonathan edwards and other puritans

  4. The URC is an excellent denomination. IMHO the Three Forms of Unity are awesome.
