A Statement of the Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God’s Plan of Salvation

This is the title of a document that was produced in the spring of 2012 by Pastor Eric Hankins. It sets forth the beliefs of many Southern Baptists regarding critical points of God’s salvation plan. The signers of this document and many likeminded others reject Calvinism along with the label non-Calvinist; preferring to describe themselves as Traditionalists. The document caused quite a response among Calvinists.

The most recent issue of The Journal for Baptist Theology and Ministry is comprised of a group of essays by supporters of the Traditional Statement. These essays explain the articles of the Traditional Statement more fully. I encourage you to read the essays. They will help you understand some serious problems with Calvinism and become familiar with a more biblical understanding of God’s plan of salvation.

I contributed the commentary on article five entitled The Regeneration of the Sinner.
