From the website of Central Baptist Church of Wayne, PA:
In affirming the historic Baptist principle of non-creedalism, Central Baptist Church holds that this addendum to ABC’s identity statement is distinctly creedal, forcing one limited interpretation of Scripture upon the whole of American Baptists. This serves to silence the movement of the Holy Spirit in and through Scripture.

We lament that this turn means that the American Baptist Churches USA is no longer authentically Baptist.
