The Baptist Press is reporting that two Baptist college professors are spearheading an effort to amend the current doctrinal basis of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS).
The current ETS doctrinal basis reads: “The Bible alone, and the Bible in its entirety, is the Word of God written and is therefore inerrant in the autographs. God is a Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each an uncreated person, one in essence, equal in power and glory.”
Ray Van Neste, Professor of Christian Studies at Union University in Jackson, Tennessee and Denny Burk, Professor of New Testament at Criswell College in Dallas are proposing that the Evangelical Theological Society adopt the doctrinal basis of the United Kingdom's Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF), with the current ETS basis added to it. According to Van Neste, the UCCF document is “a much more complete document” that addresses such theological concepts as the humanity of Christ, the virgin birth and Christ’s return.
