Romans 8:12-17, Adopted by God the Father

The twelfth article of the Baptist Confession of Faith focuses on God’s gracious work of adoption. This topic seldom receives the attention it deserves in the preaching and teaching of the churches. That is, perhaps, because it is seldom mentioned by name in the Bible, but the concept appears often. We will explore this important doctrine by examining the main passage in which it appears and will also include other passages in the sermon for a thorough explanation.
