The Glory of a True Church: And its Discipline Displayed Wherein a true Gospel-Church is described.

Written originally at the request of his members, this book met one of the outstanding needs of the English Particular Baptists at the end of the seventeenth century. Having survived some thirty turbulent years of persecution, they needed some biblical direction as to how to conduct their life together as gathered churches. Benjamin Keach’s book met this need. He was concerned for the corporate life of the people of God, that they understood who they were, how their life was to be ordered by the word of Christ, and how they were to fulfil their responsibilities as members of the church. He emphasised the glory of the church—a much-needed emphasis in the early decades of the twenty-first century when that glory has been so tarnished. Keach believed that God had invested his glory into the churches of Christ and in their authority and power. That glory derived from the head of the body, the Lord Jesus Christ, and was to be displayed not only in the way the church ordered its affairs, but also by the holiness of each of the members, by their sincere love and prayers for one another, and by their bearing with one another’s burdens and weaknesses.

 

“This is a very welcome addition to those works of Keach which are in the process of being republished.”

Austin Walker

 

“Without question, Benjamin Keach was the greatest theologian among Baptists of the second generation. He was also a faithful pastor who cared deeply for the church and longed to see it ordered according to God’s revealed will. In this little tract, The Glory of a True Church, Keach brilliantly, clearly, and succinctly explains the nature of church polity as well as regular and orderly church discipline. I highly recommend it to scholars, pastors, and laymen alike!”
