Resolution on Promise Keepers
Passed at the Independent Baptist Fellowship of North America
Annual Conference in Seattle, 20-22 June 1995

The following resolution was passed at the Independent Baptist Fellowship of North America annual conference in Seattle, June 20-22, 1995:

Recognizing that Christians are commanded by God's Word:
TO "come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God..." (Ephesians 4:13);

TO "Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers .. And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? ... Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" (2 Corinthians 6:14,16,17).

AND TO "Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood" (Acts 20:28).

AND WHEREAS there is a high profile movement known as Promise Keepers, aggressively seeking to involve men from fundamental Baptist churches;

AND WHEREAS Promise Keepers' official sounding Doctrinal Statement is crafted so those with theological and ecclesiastical persuasions of belief and non-belief including Catholic, Mormon, Charismatic and New Evangelical may and do participate;

AND WHEREAS one of Promise Keepers' goals is to have representative involvement in local churches throughout North America;

AND WHEREAS we understand and agree that men ought to be men and ought to be faithful to their wives and families;

AND WHEREAS Promise Keepers leaders, speakers and participants hold a multitude of unbiblical doctrines such as sign gifts, Arminianism and psycho heresy, and furthermore Promise Keeper participants are strongly encouraged to ignore Bible doctrine and propound methods that undermine church autonomy and pastoral authority;

WE THEREFORE RESOLVE and do hereby encourage pastors and laymen to take a clear stand and reject any participation with Promise Keepers lest God's command against compromise be dishonored and churches succumb to ecumenism;

AND BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that we, the Independent Baptist Fellowship of North America, meeting in Annual Conference, June 20-22, 1995, in Seattle, Washington, teach our congregations the lessons of Scripture and experience which clearly warn against co-operation in spiritual efforts, though noble-sounding, when such are undertaken in ways which conflict with God's Word.
