Religion

The Bible is the only authoritative source of God's truth and any view that cannot be directly tied to a scriptural reference is generally considered to be based on human traditions rather than God's leading.

Politics

Christians should engage the culture through discipleship within the churches and through participation in the democratic public policy and political process in order to help fulfill the kingdom mandate taught in the Bible and expressed in the Baptist Faith to bring industry, government, and society as a whole under the sway of the principles of righteousness, truth, and brotherly love.
