    Baptist Handbook For Church Members By M. L. Moser, Jr. It is a distinct principle with Baptists that they acknowledge no human founder, recognize no human authority, and subscribe to no human creed. For all these things, Baptists of every name and order go back to the New Testament.   It is the greatest challenge in the world because it was given by the greatest person in the world, Jesus Christ. It is the greatest challenge in the world because it has the greatest authority behind it — namely, “all authority in heaven and on earth” (Matthew ). New centers for ethics and Baptist history come into being. New life is breathed into hurting people. My reply to these and other issues facing Baptists today is this: Being Baptist is still worth the effort. Careful reading of the primary resources produced by the earliest Baptists in the s reveals heavy reliance on the Lordship of Christ.
