Definition of Monergism: The view that the Holy Spirit is the only agent who effects regeneration of Christians. It is in contrast with synergism, the view that there is a cooperation between the divine and the human in the regeneration process. Monergism is a redemptive blessing purchased by Christ for those the Father has given Him (1 Pet 1:3, John 3:5,6, 6:37, 39). This grace works independently of any human cooperation and conveys that power into the fallen soul whereby the person who is to be saved is effectually enabled to respond to the gospel call (John 1:13; Acts 2:39, 13:48; Rom 9:16).

Throughout the ages, Baptists have been known by different names, our doctrines are from the time of Christ and though at times our beliefs have been controversial, even scorned from within our own denomination, there have always been Baptists who adhere to the sound teaching of God's Word.
It is my sincere prayer that every Baptist will make a renewed interest in knowing their history, rich in Biblical theology and doctrine. As Thomas Armitage plainly states, we cannot be Baptists without the Bible, therefore, to be a Baptist, one must first be grounded in the Word of God from which our Lord commands each and everyone to give an account of our faith boldly,
