Don’t “Drown the Dippers”, Yet! An Invitation to a New Baptist Adventure
When local magistrates once consulted Swiss reformer Huldrych Zwingli (1484-1531) about the fate of several Anabaptists, he called for their execution by saying, “Drown the Dippers.” There are many today who might echo his decree. As tarnished as the Baptist name has become, it’s no wonder that churches are considering whether to keep “Baptist” in their title. But rather than distance ourselves from our history, this two-month study will invite us to re-envision our Baptist identity, and equip us to repurpose for our own time the prophetic witness of the earliest Baptists. We’ll explore Scripture and history together, while turning a prophetic eye to contemporary challenges. Who knows...we might find that being Baptist is still just as full of heart-pounding adventure as it was for the first Baptist “dippers” who called the church to faithfulness.
