Bible only. The do not believe once saved always. This is their biggest difference with other Baptists. They believe you can lose your salvation.

dal11,

Glad you’re here and I hope we can help you out. I know some good Baptist forums you can go to if you’re a Baptist. They won’t let other Christians on the forums I would recommend to you so I can’t ask the questions. As a Christian non-Baptist I am banned!

Be carefull too in grouping all Baptists into one group. Even within a Baptist sect you will still find preachers that condridict other preachers in the same sect or even members in a single church assembly that contridict each other on many theological matters. With that said most Baptists in a particular sect do agree on most key theological issues.

We can tell you what one sect or a vast number of them believe but untill you actually talk to the preacher in a particular church you won’t know all the details and some of what we say could be slightly different or off from what that preacher teaches as truth.

There are several good threads already on this forum you may want to check out that that deal with Baptists overall. I never went to a Freewill Baptist sect assembly so I can’t help you with this particular matter.

Here is a great site to see some Baptist opinions compared to Catholic theology:

Sorry, but with the evils of self-interpretation your fact search becomes difficult.

Remeber too that we are all Christians including the Freeeill Baptists so treat them with Love and respect. If you get some answers please let us know.

Gods peace be with you and good luck in your search.

They believe the same baptist principles as other baptists. They don’t believe in eternal security (once saved always saved) though. They do believe in Bible alone. They tend to be charismatic in worship. That would answer some of your questions, but I’m afraid these few things may fall short of what you really need answers to. Hopefully this little bit helped.

This should help. nafwb.org/gen_articles.html
Also, most FWB chruches should have copies of the FreeWillBaptist articles of faith and Treatise. You should be able to stop in and ask for a copy without a problem, if you’d like one that is.
