Maybe sum 'em all up by saying those who adhere to credobaptism.

That said, a Baptist thread in the same vein as the Catholic or Orthodox threads--where discussion is mainly held between members of that tradition with the occasional 'outsider' comment--is a good idea.

Stanley forgot to include Westboro Baptists in his nearly exhaustive list :lol:
I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

My 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith arrived today. I'm interested to see why we believe what we believe.

I used to be a NBELSSAUSA but “Catholic” has fewer letters, so it only made sense.

I grew up in the Baptist Church so I'll just hang out here to see how much y'all get wrong.

I like being on the nominating committee. That way, I nominate everyone else, and then my job's done.

If I were to start all over again, I would join a congregation that holds to the 1689 as their confession.

Sometimes we have potluck lunch after service on Sundays. Also for Bible study. I live in a coastal area that is full of crabbers, shrimpers and commercial fisherman. So in addition to the fried chicken, rice/gravy and casseroles, we often have soft shell crab, shrimp and fried speckled trout or flounder, all fresh caught. We also have oyster roasts a few times a year during the winter. Eat your hearts out.
