Is your Baptist church just not what it used to be? Have Mega-churches and heresy got you down? Well have no fear little brothers and sisters because John S. Hammet is here. In his book Biblical Foundations for Baptist Churches: A Contemporary Ecclesiology he explains how to deal with ecclesiological problems in our modern seemingly ecclesiology free land. Yes that last sentence makes sense if you know what ecclesiology means.
Biblical Foundations is divided in five sections that explain what the church is, who the church is, how the church is governed, what the church does, and where it is going. These sections are composed of a total of 12 chapters. Proper use and understanding of these chapters may be of help to church leaders.
Biblical Foundations should be read by confused, new, Baptist preachers who are trying to figure out the framework for their jobs. After all, the religion is the key element but if you do not understand the structure of your organization then you have no way to efficiently impart that religion or deal with church problems now do you? So raise your hands to the sky! Shout Halleluiah! Run to your car! Go to the bookstore and save your congregation today! It is easier to be a Presbyterian though. With us there is no check-list so if you screw up it is fixable because God fixes stuff.
