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
