    Is it necessary to adhere to everything in the London Baptist confession to be considered a Reformed Baptist?

    No. At out church adherence to the confession is not necessary for membership. There is another statement on our website for that. If one is to teach in the church, they must have substantial agreement to the confession, but not in every point. And if a person disagrees on a point, they must make it known. Of course, no one is going to teach in our church who hasn't been examined by the elders.

    There are several in our church for example who disagree with the confession's identification of the Antichrist as the papacy.
