Sunday Evening Series


As Christians - we all confess something. And what we confess unites us with believers both locally and historically. In order to pursue a greater unity and a more loving fellowship, FFC will be teaching through the Baptist Catechism (often called Keach's catechism - but we aren't using the one he popularized) during our Sunday evening service.

 

There have been some modifications to the catechism over the years and because of this -  your copy may have slightly different wording of a particular question or perhaps, a different ordering of questions or a different question all together depending on what copy you have. Also, we are taking liberty to modernize the language. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for the baptist catechism we will be using (5th edition - published c.1693)

Q. How do baptism and the Lords supper become effectual means of salvation?
A. Baptism and the Lords supper become effectual means of salvation, not for any virtue in them, or in him that does administer them, but only by the blessing of Christ (1 Pet. 3:21; Mt. 3:11; 1 Cor. 3:6, 7), and the working of the Spirit in those that by faith receive them (1 Cor. 12:3; Mt. 28:19).

97.

Q. What is baptism?
A. Baptism is an ordinance of the New Testament instituted by Jesus Christ, to be a sign to the party baptized of his fellowship with Him, in his death, burial, and resurrection; of his being ingrafted into Him (Rom. 6:3, 4, 5; Col. 2:12; Gal. 3:27); of remission of sins (Mk. 1:4; Acts 2:38, and 22:16); and of his giving up himself to God through Jesus Christ, to live and walk in newness of life (Rom. 6:3, 4).

 

 

August 21st

100.

Q. How is Baptism rightly administered?
A. Baptism is rightly administered by immersion, or dipping the whole body of the party in water, into the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, according to Christ's institution, and the practice of the apostles (Mt. 3:16; Jn. 3:23; 4:1, 2; Mt. 28:19, 20; Acts 8:38; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12), and not by sprinkling or pouring of water, or dipping some part of the body, after the tradition of men.

 

 

 

August 28th

98.

Q. Who is baptism to be administered to?
A. Baptism is to be administered to all those who actually profess repentance towards God (Acts 2:38; Mt. 3:6), faith in, and obedience to our Lord Jesus Christ, and to none other (Acts 8:12, 36, 37, 38; 10:47, 48).

 

99.

Q. Are the infants of professing believers to be baptized?
A. The infants of professing believers are not to be baptized, because there is neither command or example in the Holy Scriptures, nor reason from them, to be baptized (Ex. 23:13; Pr. 30:6; Lk. 3:7, 8).
