The Baptist Standard Bearer, Inc., is committed to the belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the exalted Lord of all things. We believe His view of Holy Scripture determines the view of all those who profess Him as Saviour and Lord. Hence, our organization believes the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant and authoritative Word of God, the final rule of all Christian faith and practice. Even though we don’t recognize any creed or confession of faith as a final authority, our organization does distribute the Baptist Confessions of Faith of 1644 and 1677 (i.e., the 1st and 2nd London Confessions of Faith) as summarized statements of our basic doctrinal and practical beliefs.
The Baptist Standard Bearer, Inc., predominantly publishes material that focuses upon the identity, history and theology of the evangelical Baptist churches. Even though we also publish material not written by or about Baptists, we are primarily dedicated to republishing and preserving the works of Baptist authors which explain Baptist Beliefs and record Baptist Church History. This includes the writings of English and American Baptists, General and Particular Baptists, Northern and Southern Baptists, New School and Old School or Primitive Baptists. Consequently, we produce a series of books that set forth the primary Doctrines of the Baptist Faith and a series of books that expounds and defends the particular Baptist Distinctives.
While we publish a series of books dealing with the History of Baptist churches and Baptist principles, we also produce a series that details and records the history and theology of Dissent & Nonconformity since the time of the Apostles. This series includes books dealing with the Waldensians and the Anabaptists. The material in this series spans the pre-Reformation and post-Reformation eras leading up to and through the time of the Puritans, Separatists, Congregationalists and Pilgrims, showing the relationship of these various groups to the early English Baptists.

ON BAPTIST IDENTITY
C. H. Spurgeon wrote, "If I thought it were wrong to be a Baptist, I should give it up, and become what I believed to be right." C. H. Spurgeon’s Autobiography. (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1897). Volume 1, Page 154. Again he said, "We are Baptists, and we cannot swerve from this matter of discipline." Autobiography. Volume 2, Page 328. On another occasion he wrote, "We are Calvinistic Baptists, and have no desire to sail under false colors, neither are we ashamed of our principles; if we were, we would renounce them tomorrow." The Metropolitan Tabernacle: Its History and Work. (London: Passmore & Alabaster, 1876). Page 4.
John Gill said, "I am a Baptist, and he may call me, if he pleases, a new one, or an old Calvinistic one, or an Antinomian one; it is a very trifle to me." An Answer to the Birmingham Dialogue-Writer &c. - Part 1. (London: Aaron Ward, 1737). Page 134.
Abraham Booth wrote, "Our character is fixed. And be it known to all men, we are Strict Baptists. To this character, as before explained, we subscribe with heart and hand." A Defense of the Baptists &c. (London: E. & C. Dilly, 1778). Page 142.

THE INFINITY OF GOD
Great God! how infinite art Thou!
What worthless worms are we!
Let the whole race of creatures bow,
And pay their praise to Thee!
Thy throne eternal ages stood,
Ere seas or stars were made;
Thou art the ever-living God,
Were all the nations dead.
Nature and time quite naked lie
To Thy immense survey,
From the formation of the sky,
To the last great burning day.
Eternity, with all its years,
Stands present in Thy view;
To Thee there's nothing old appears -
Great God! there's nothing new!
