Oxford Baptist Underground

Originating From a Secret Bunker Dug By William Hosea Holcombe and J.B. Gambrell Somewhere Off the Square in Oxford, Mississippi

Purpose of This Blog

Oxford, Mississippi is my hometown.  In June 2012, the pastor of Oxford’s First Baptist Church, Dr. Eric Hankins, wrote an introduction for and signed a document called “A Statement of the Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God’s Plan of Salvation.”  Accordingly, as the First Baptist Church, it is also the flagship church for all Southern Baptists in Lafayette County, of which Oxford is the county seat.  This blog seeks to interact with Dr. Hankins public statements on theology, issues raised by the “Traditional Statement” and its supporters, and address the subject of Calvinism in Southern Baptist life.  While I suspect this blog will have a limited lifespan, it may take me a while to raise every issue I feel needs to be addressed.

    Would it be possible to chat with someone and learn more about doctrinal issues in the SBC? I pastor a Particular Baptist Church but have roots in the SBC.

      A blog/site that has a lot of interaction between Southern Baptists is SBC Voices – Calvinists, Arminians, and self-identified Traditionalists.
