    The Biblical doctrine of conditional immortality of the souls of man is not known as part of their soteriology.

    The knowledge of good and evil being the cause of the fallen nature is not taught.

    Sanctification preceding regeneration is not understood.

    That the adoption itself does not occur until resurrection.

    Each of these issues need their own thread.

    Under the "Sovereign Grace Baptists" section of the Wikipedia article it mentions Henry Mahan. He is the man whom God used to lead my pastor to Christ and His perfect Righteousness.

    That's because no Baptist holds your position and it's certainly not a part of this thread.

    On the PuritanBoard site they always get into arguments about whether Baptist's can be reformed.

    We adhere to the 1689 London Confession at our Church, which is very much Reformed, but we don't hold to strict communion.

    Anyone who is a Christian of any denomination, and is born-again may partake in the Lord's Supper at their own risk at our Church. Our elders do give a warning beforehand of the seriousness of taking part in the Lord's Supper and not being regenerate.

    We also attend a joint Presby/Baptist Psalm Sing associated with the CREC every other week where several Christian families gather in a given family's house. We have supper together and sing a bunch of acapella Psalms and Hymns including:
    -The Son of God Goes Forth to War
    -Jesus Shall Reign
    -Why Do the Heathen Nations Vainly Rage
    -Jehovah to My Lord Has Said

    There's 9 families present and approximately 70 people. I'll let y'all do the numbers on the average number of kids haha.

    It is my understanding that the term 'Reformed Baptist' is of very recent usage. It dates SFAIK from 1963 when Geoff Thomas from Wales and Walter Chantry were at Westminster Seminary, came under pressure to adopt Presbyterian doctrines and declared themselves to be Reformed Baptists. Others say Ernest Reisinger used the term but I haven't been able to find that.

    From the 17th Century, Baptists of a Calvinisic persuasion were called Particular Baptists because they believed in particular redemption. Some of them, like William Kiffin, believed in closed communion, while others, like Bunyan, upheld open communion. The former came to be known as 'Strict' or 'Strict and Paticular' Baptists.

    I have spent time on the Puritan Board and been told that I'm not Reformed because to be Reformed is to be Presbyterian, but the Presbys didn't patent the word 'Reformed' so knickers to that! I am Reformed and Baptistic, and if anyone doesn't like that - too bad! In fact Reformed Presbys are very thin on the ground in England (different in Scotland), so, while there are some Reformed Episcopalians in the Church of England (think Jim Packer and John Stott), the large majority of Reformed folk in England are Baptists.
