Robert Ketcham (1889 - 1978)

Listen to freely downloadable audio sermons by the speaker Robert Ketcham in mp3 format. Was a Baptist pastor, a leader of separationist fundamentalism, and a founder of the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches. In 1919, Ketcham became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Butler, Pennsylvania, where he became more active in defense of orthodox Christianity especially by opposing liberal tendencies in the Northern Baptist Convention. When the Convention launched a "New World Movement" to create a "civilization Christian in spirit," Ketcham wrote a pamphlet with the unpromising title, "A Statement of the First Baptist Church Butler, Pennsylvania, with Reference to The New World Movement and the $100,000,000 Drive (1919)." Soon after the pamphlet was published, Ketcham received a visit from officers of the Pittsburgh Baptist Association, who made it clear that if Ketcham did not retract the pamphlet, he would never get another pastorate in the Northern Baptist Convention; one member of the committee shook Ketcham by the collar and "roared that Ketchan owed God an apology."

Robert's determination to follow God led him to challenge modernism in the Northern Baptist denomination. When crucial issues of faith could not be resolved, he became a leader in forming the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches. For years he edited its journal, the Baptist Bulletin. Once asked to sum up his advice for pastors he said, "Preach Christ, give the whole counsel of God, expose error, obey God, be available to your people." He died in 1978, obedient to the end.
