Founders Ministries Blog

Tom Ascol has launched a blog. I’m excited to see this development and pray that the blog medium will expand the reach of what God has been doing through Founders Ministries. With his first post, Ascol explains the purpose of his new online presence:

Our goal is to provide a forum for analyzing and discussing issues that relate to the work of biblical reformation in the churches throughout the Southern Baptist Convention and beyond. By “biblical reformation” we do not mean the promotion of a man, a system or a movement. We mean the ongoing re-formation of churches along biblical lines. A motto that arose out of the 16th century reformation recognizes this need. The reformers declared the need for “the church reformed, always reforming.” So it should be. Any church leader who does not see this need is simply naive. Another way to state it is that a church needs to be growing–always growing according to the Word of God. If the church growth movement had not so effectively co-opted such terminology we could just as readily use it. But today, “church growth” is measured almost exclusively in terms of numbers and statistics, a standard to which 2 Peter 3:18 will not submit.

So, with this introduction, feel free to read, enjoy, agree, disagree, comment or lurk.

I owe a debt of gratitude to Ascol for his ministry. God used his Founders Journal to open my eyes to the doctrines of grace and the strong theological heritage we as Southern Baptists possess. My ministry and my view of God’s sovereignty over all things has been enhanced through reading the journal and being introduced to fellow like minded Southern Baptists, both past and present.
