Errors of Campbellism

What, in my view, are the errors of Campbellism?

1. Making water baptism a sine qua non of salvation.

2. Teaching that the new birth is accomplished by the "word alone" apart from the special working of the power of the Spirit.

3. Teaching that believers may lose faith and salvation.

4. Teaching pelagianism, to one degree or another.

5. Teaching that all are lost who are not members of Campbellite churches.

6. Teaching that justification before the law is by works.

7. Teaching "patternism."

I apologize for contacting you via a comments section but I couldn't find another way to contact you.

I'm actually seeking your help! If you have time and are able to help, I greatly appreciate it.

I'm a homeschooling Mom and I've been searching for several hours for a non-reformed Baptist catechism and confessional. If you are aware of any such thing, could you please point me in the right direction? Much appreciation for your time.

Dear Michelle:

I am sorry but I cannot help you. You might check with the Free Will Baptists (internet) who perhaps have a confession.
