What is the Reformed Baptist Network?

reformed-baptist-networkThe Reformed Baptist Network is a new effort among Reformed Baptists seeking to organize together for the cause of Christ, church planting and missions.  The Network is being formed from a number of long-standing 1689 Confessional churches, but seeking an association with a fresh vision and focus, desiring to express a broad Reformed and Gospel-centered communion.  RBNet wants to affirm fellowship and relationship with other associations and fellowships, and pursue fraternal connections as much as possible.  Yet RBNetwork also has a distinct missionary vision,organizational structure, and Confessional commitment.

Sep. 19-21, 2016 “The Diversity of Dissent” Andrew Fuller Center 10th Annual Conf. in Louisville, KY.

Baptist origins lie within the matrix of the renewal movement known to history as Puritanism. They were not the only community to emerge from this renewal, however: English Presbyterians and Congregationalists also trace their beginnings back to Puritanism. But despite this common ancestry, these communities had their differences.


In this tenth annual conference of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies, co-sponsored this year by The Davenant Trust, we trace this diversity through the lives and thought of three leading Puritans of the late Stuart era (1660–1714)—the Presbyterian Richard Baxter, the Congregationalist John Owen, and the Baptist William Kiffen—all of whom were born within a year or so of each other, in 1615 and 1616. Do join us as we think about the thought and ongoing legacy of these three extremely important Christian authors.

Oct. 29 – Nov. 1, 2015 “The Highway of Holiness” NCFIC Nat. Conf. feat. Brown, Simmons, Pollard, Dohm, Horn + more in Asheville, NC

Highway Holiness NCFIC 2015


Please accept our invitation to our 2015 National Conference – “The Highway of Holiness.” Using Isaiah 35:8-10 as our touchstone, we will unfold the doctrines of the holiness of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. After laying this foundation, we will then explain how the holiness of God relates to various aspects of our lives here on earth, for these great doctrines have wonderful practical applications. You will learn about progressive sanctification, wrong views of holiness and sanctification, the means of sanctification, and how holiness relates to family relationships, work, stewardship and the church of our Lord Jesus Christ. We will examine what it means to be a holy church as Peter described, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Pet. 2:9).

The subject of holiness addresses both the opportunities and the dangers of living in the midst of fallen cultures, and it provides guidance for the rising generation who are being assaulted with the worldliness that could deprive them of their happiness.

Join us on Oct. 29 – Nov. 1, 2015 as we examine, “holiness, without which no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).
