The First London Confession of Faith, 1646 Edition. With an Appendix by Benjamin Cox.
Historical Introduction by Michael A. G. Haykin.
William L. Lumpkin in his Baptist Confessions of Faith stated that “Perhaps no Confession of Faith has had so formative an influence on Baptist life as this one.” We also believe its historical importance is second only to its Christ-centeredness.
Some of the new features are a Historical Introduction by Michael A. G. Haykin, a facsimile copy of the original title page of the 1646 edition, and some additions to make the confession easier to use, including 1) giving each article in the confession an appropriate title, as suggested by other period confessions; 2) placing at the end of each article in the confession, after the scripture references, any corresponding reference to the appendix in bold print; 3) retaining unabridged the original wording, though with modern spelling, and any additions noted in brackets; 4) consistently capitalizing references to the Godhead; 5) making some slight additions to the punctuation for clarity; and 6) including a table of Contents.
This booklet would be ideal for individual or group study or for a wider distribution. Paperback, 44 pages.

I love having this in modern print and in an easy hand out for our members. This is one of the best of Baptist Confessions that ought to be read and studied by all.
This is our Confession of Faith and It is wonderful to have a little book to give to each of our people to study from. I quote from it often and carry it into the pulpit. We need to get back to the old confessions of Faith!
I am so thankful to see this great Confession in print again. I was so impressed by it after reading it that I am seriously considering making another for multiple copies to put into the hands of those I pastor.
