2005 – Resolution on the Continuing Perils of Promise Keepers

Whereas for fifteen years Promise Keepers has made one of its purposes to break down denominational walls and dispose of the precious distinctive doctrines of our faith, aiming to involve multitudes of churches of diverse denominations and beliefs; and


Whereas by its leaders and teachers there is a direct link to the charismatic movement and humanistic teachings connecting all to a worldly ecumenicism that tolerates diverse and erroneous beliefs (Galatians 1:6-9); and


Whereas Promise Keepers and their counterpart Women of Faith are continuing to deceive men and women from the true teachings on biblical separation as they profess to foster godly manhood and womanhood with biblical unity, yet leading thousands into doctrinal error and unbiblical fellowship (II Corinthians 6:14, 17-18);


Therefore be it resolved that we, the members of the Independent Baptist Fellowship of North America, meeting in Shipshewana, Indiana, on June 21st through 23rd of 2005, do reaffirm our concern and opposition to the errors and dangers of Promise Keepers and Women of Faith. We further resolve to hold high and promote God’s Holy Scripture in fostering true godliness and unity for men and women in growing in Christ-likeness in service and worship within our churches.
