Three Resources Reflecting on Close Communion
I was raised in the close communion tradition, and I believe that this tradition is best reflective of biblical teaching. As an adult, my convictions in this regard have been reinforced by the training that I received at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Here are two resources in this regard:
The Baptism Panel Discussion from April 18, 2007.
"Should the Water Divide Us? Baptism, Church Membership, and the Glory of Christ" from April 25, 2007.
As a third resource, with sustained scriptural argument, I would also commend J.L. Dagg's Manual of Church Order on this subject. (View HERE: Section IV, "Open Communion".)
