Welcome to the Updated Baptist Distinctives Website!

This website — for casual readers and avid students alike — provides information on the Bible-based doctrine, polity, heritage, ministry, and organization of Baptists.

Although the website is Baptist oriented, hopefully it will be helpful for others as well.

For Baptists, it is designed to strengthen the Baptist commitment to fulfill the Great Commission and Great Commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If you have visited the website before, you will note that there are many additions and updates. For instance, click on the “Baptist Identity Series” in the toolbar to see the major addition.

The website not only provides a vast amount of information on site, but is also a door to a wealth of other material from a wide variety of sources. Explore and enjoy!

Some Background

This website offers a wealth of information and inspiration about the Baptist family of Christians. Every effort has been made to make it user friendly. The “On-Site Resources” has links to resources that can be downloaded and used immediately. The “Resources to Order” links to resources to order, either on-line or by mail.
 
The “On-Site Resources” contains links to twenty-seven one-page articles that can be downloaded. In response to requests that the articles be put in leaflet form, nineteen 5.5 x 8.5 Bible-based, colorful, illustrated leaflets written in a popular style were developed. This format allowed a combination of some of the articles.
 
The “Resources to Order” contains links to order materials in the Baptist Identity Series. The leaflets can be ordered in a packet of all nineteen and are also printed in the Baptist Beliefs and Heritage book, thus fulfilling the request from many that the leaflets be made available in book form. Study guides, both for personal and group study, can be ordered to use with the leaflets or the Baptist Beliefs and Heritage book.
 
The total package of material, the Baptist Identity Series, is produced by the volunteer staff of the Texas Baptist Heritage Center, a non-profit, religious entity of the Baptist General Convention of Texas.
