The London Baptist Confession 1677

A brief description of The London Baptist Confession (1677), a later confession in the Protestant Reformation:

In 1677, Particular Baptists sought to join the various Calvinist dissenters who were opposed to the Anglican state church’s pressure on their congregations. In response, they slightly critiqued “The Westminster Confession of Faith” to reflect their Baptist distinctives. William Collins and Nehemiah Cox were the editors.[1]
