After the British Parliament passed the Toleration Act of 1698, which enabled religious
freedom and plurality throughout the land, churches independent from the Church of
England began publishing their doctrinal statements openly. The Baptist Confession of
Faith, drafted in 1677, outlines the views of the Particular Baptists, a Baptist subgroup
characterized by a Calvinist theology of salvation. The Confession helped the Particular
Baptists to unify and expand their church, especially in colonial America. Calvinistic
Baptists, including many Sovereign Grace Baptist, Southern Baptist, and Reformed
Baptist congregations, remain some of the most influential Christian communities in the
United States to this day.
