Priesthood of All Believers and Liberty of Conscience

 
bullet

Baptists believe that all members are equal under God in the fellowship of the church (Gal. 3:28).  Jesus is the one mediator between God and humanity (1 Tim. 2:5).  Every human being has direct access to God through Christ (Heb. 7:25-28).

Every Christian is his or her own priest in that he or she is authorized to go directly to God for forgiveness of sins (Heb. 4:15-16) and to search the scriptures (2 Tim. 2:15) with confidence of being guided by the same Spirit (John 16:13) that inspired those who wrote the Bible (2 Peter 1:20-21).

Every Christian is a priest to others in that he or she is a member of a royal priesthood (1 Pet. 2:9) and responsible to Christ for ministering to others  ( 1 Cor. 12:4-7).
