Going Public: Why Baptism is Required for Church Membership
4 in stock
What is the meaning and function of baptism? Does everyone who joins a local church need to be baptised? What exactly is 'church membership'? To answer the question of whether baptism is required for church membership, Going Public seeks to rebuild ecclesiological foundations, digging deep into the Bible's teaching on baptism, the Lord's Supper, and church membership.
After building and summarising the positive theological case for why baptism is required for church membership, the book answers objections, poses challenges to the open membership view, and applies this theological vision to the local church's practice of baptism, the Lord's Supper, and church membership.
"I am glad to commend Bobby Jamieson's work... I know of no other work that so thoroughly considers the ecclesiological, theological, and biblical issues that connect baptism to church membership and participation in the Lord's Supper and does so in a clear, readable, and irenic manner."?
