Report of the 1st Module of the Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador & upcoming 2nd class starts Nov. 21, 2016 [CBTS]

Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary:

Pastor Francisco Orozco

July 25-29 we had the first class of the Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador (SBCE), with the backing of Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. The first module was on “The Doctrine of the Word of God,” and was taught by Pastor Francisco Orozco from Chihuahua, Mexico .

The class took place in a camp owned by the Southern Baptist Convention, which is located in the Ecuadorian coast in a small city named Manglaralto. We had 56 students in attendance, the majority of them were pastors of churches and men involved in the ministry of the Word, but from different denominational contexts.

The class had a great impact due to the great truths of the Word of God that were expounded by Pastor Orozco, many of these truths had never been thoroughly studied by some of these pastors before. Among many questions and “battles of the heart” we were able to perceive the great disposition of the heart of these pastors, including some with many years of pastoral experience, who were taught that the Word of God should be their guide in the work of the ministry, and they came to desire that this would be a reality in their ministries.

The week ended full of joy and gratitude to the Lord. Each student returned to his home desiring to put into practice what he had learned, but also with the commitment to set aside time to attend the second class, which will be held November 21-25, and will be taught by Pastor Guillermo Gomez from Bogota, Colombia.

We ask you to pray for our students, the professors, and the whole organization of the Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador, that God would be glorified in everything we do.

Soli Deo Gloria,
Pastor Jorge A. Rodriguez V.
Director SBCE

Nehemiah Coxe (Author), John Owen (Author), Ronald Miller (Editor), James Renihan (Editor), Francisco Orozco (Editor)

$9.99 | £6.53 ]


This is a reprint of Nehemiah Coxe, probably the co-editor of the London Baptist Confession of Faith (1677/89), on “A Discourse of the Covenants that God made with men before the law” and John Owen’s “An Exposition of Hebrews 8:6-13, wherein the nature and differences between the Old and New Covenants is discovered.” It contains an Introduction by James M. Renihan, “Why is this reprint important?” and an appendix by Richard C. Barcellos, “John Owen and New Covenant Theology: Owen on the Old and New Covenants and the Functions of the Decalogue in Redemptive History in Historical and Contemporary Perspective.” Coxe was a leading Particular Baptist theologian in his day. He intended to write on the Mosaic and New Covenants but when Owen’s Hebrews commentary came out, Coxe directed his readers to Owen. Coxe covers the covenant of works, the covenant with Noah, and the covenant(s) with Abraham. Owen focuses on the Mosaic (Old) and New Covenants.

More times than I can count…I have heard Reformed theology defined in such a way that it excludes those who hold to believer’s baptism. This valuable work will help set the record straight.

Nehemiah Coxe’s work on the covenant is an important piece of writing by a significant seventeenth-century Particular Baptist theologian. Its republication is long overdue. This work is an important resource for twenty-first-century Reformed Baptists.

Nehemiah Coxe was a leading Particular Baptist pastor and theologian of the seventeenth century. He was probably the co-editor of the London Baptist Confession of Faith (1677/89).

John Owen, a leading Congregational paedobaptist of the seventeenth century, is well-known for being the ‘Prince of the Puritans.’ J. I. Packer says, “In his own day he was seen as England’s foremost bastion and champion of Reformed evangelical orthodoxy.”
