Truth & Freedom Institute is a confessional educational website and blog with the sole intention of presenting the truth with integrity and faithfulness to God’s Word. We hope to encourage the Church to live peaceably with all (cf. Rom.8;12) by a life of learning and devotion to God and to His Kingdom, divorced from the encumbrances and appetence of ill sought carnal dominion, and the passivity of modern evangelical escapism.
We believe in preserving the legacy of our separatist forebears, in promoting a philosophy of peace, not as an end in itself, but to underscore the sharp distinction between God’s Kingdom — a Kingdom that seeks the reconciliation of sinners to God, instead of their servility to man — and the kingdoms of this world.
The following is a concise [and incomplete] introduction to what we believe and hope to write about abundantly in the time to come:
- Confession: 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith
- Epistemology: Propositional Revelation (Theistic Apriorism)
- Metaphysics: Christian Theism
- Soteriology: Faith (Belief/Assent) Alone
- Ethics: God’s Moral Law
- Politics: Property Rights Libertarian
- Catallactics: Austrian Economics
We also hold to the The Cambridge Declaration, and the constitutions, by-laws, and covenants of each administrator’s respective local church.
“It hath been told me that I labored for a licentious and contentious people…. But, gentlemen, blessed be God… for His wonderful providences, by which alone this town and colony, and that grand cause of truth and freedom of conscience, hath been upheld.”
