A major tenet of the Baptist faith is the doctrine of perseverance of the saints. It goes by other names such as “eternal security/salvation” or “once saved, always saved.” The further along I trod in my spiritual walk, the more I realize how foreign a concept this is to other denominations. However, if we believe that Christ calls us to salvation, we are assured that He will keep us in the palm of His hand, just as Scripture promises.
Today at Leawood East, we will sing a song that proclaims this pillar of faith. Sovereign Grace put this song out in 2003 and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. It’s incredibly deep, theological text paired with a singable melody make this a perfect choice for congregational worship. Happy Sunday!
