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.
Free shipping and quantity discounts up to 50% and more are always available when ordering the Baptist Identity Series. Currently, a special offer of free books on Baptist identity is available with any order of items in the Series. Click here for further information on the bonus books.
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.
