Confessional Baptist Theology for a Non-Confessional Age
Founded in 2019, The Baptist Broadcast works to provide creedal and confessional resources to pastors and laity alike. We are concerned not only with Christian orthodoxy broadly considered but specifically confessional Baptist theology as presented in the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1677/89). We feature a regular podcast hosted by Josh Sommer and an active blog. We are looking to expand our authorship and podcast network in the near future as well.

“I am persuaded that one reason why our working-men so universally keep clear of ministers is because they abhor their artificial and unmanly ways.”
