Very Clear Biblical Teaching

FBFI Pulpit: Dr. David Innes, Hamilton Square Baptist Church, San Francisco, CA
Series: What is Fundamentalism?

Some doctrines and practices are essential to Christianity. These are what define fundamentalism. In this message, Dr. Innes offers further clarification of how to understand and apply these points to ecclesiastical relationships.

Many profess Christianity while holding on to the fundamental doctrines and practices very loosely, if at all. The Bible-believing Christian needs to think about how others connect with the truth in order to understand how he much cooperation/fellowship he can offer. Some truths are irreducible minimums of the Christian Faith and are absolutely essential to the Christian Faith. When Jude called on us to “earnestly contend,” it is these clear doctrines and practices he had in mind.

In this message Dr. Innes also gives some definition and distinction between these groups:

  • Exclusivist
  • Fundamentalist
  • Pseudo-Fundamentalist
  • Neo-Evangelical
  • Neo-Orthodox
  • Liberal
  • Charismatic
