Baptist Distinctiveness

Principles of Baptist Distinctiveness

As a Baptist seminary affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas, Logsdon Seminary affirms seven foundational principles of Baptist identity:

  • The supreme authority of the living Christ
  • The centrality of the Bible as the essential and trustworthy guide for life and faith
  • The reality of salvation by grace
  • The priesthood of every believer and the autonomy of the individual soul before God
  • The liberty of conscience and religious freedom in society and church
  • The autonomy of the local church and congregational authority within the church
  • The priority of missions and ministry in the life of the church
