SECTION 1



BAPTISTS




Baptists are individuals who comprise a group of Christian denominations
and churches that subscribe to a doctrine that baptism should be performed
only for professing believers (believer's baptism, as opposed to infant
baptism), and that it must be done by complete immersion (as opposed to
affusion or sprinkling).

Other tenets of Baptist churches include soul competency (liberty), salvation
through faith alone, Scripture alone as the rule of faith and practice, and
the autonomy of the local congregation. Baptists recognize two ministerial
offices, elders and deacons. Baptist churches are widely considered to be
Protestant churches, though some Baptists disavow this identity.

BAPTIST
VS.
ROMAN CATHOLIC BELIEFS




The term "Baptist" refers to a person who believes in the adult
"baptism of believers" in Jesus. In other words, Baptists are
those who claim a personal faith in Christ alone for salvation,
who also reject the baptism of infants, believing that only
adult believers in Jesus, (or those at least old enough to
actually understand about trusting in Christ), should be baptized.
They also do not believe that baptism itself saves them from their
sins.

The term "Catholic" means "Universal". It generally refers to the
"Roman Catholic Church", which for most of these last two thousand
years has been the largest and most organized religious group "within"
Christendom.

During the later part of the Middle Ages, some people who were studying
the Bible became convinced that infant baptism, (i.e. the sprinkling of
babies with water by a priest), was unscriptural. As a result, these
men began to "re-baptize" each other.

The word "Ana-Baptist" ("Anabaptist") means "re-baptizer". These people
were called "re"-baptizers by Roman Catholics and Protestants, (because
most of these Baptists had already been "sprinkled" by the Roman Catholic
Church when they were infants.)

DOCTRINES




What Do Baptists Believe?


Baptist churches generally teach the following:

1. The Bible is the inerrant Word of God, sufficient for faith
and practice.

2. God is a Trinity in essence – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. Jesus Christ is God manifested in the Flesh being Virgin
Born and Sinless.

4. His Death on the Cross was necessary as a substitutiary
atonement for the transgressions of all mankind. His
Resurrection and Ascension in Heaven assures all mankind
of His ability to give salvation to whosoever will.

5. One receives Salvation by God’s Grace is delivered personally
by the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ and the Father to all who
repent and believe the Gospel.

6. Each believer has Jesus Christ as a personal Savior & High
Priest to the Father, while being indwelt by the Holy Spirit.

7. Each local Church is independent of any Denominational Control
and is directly under Jesus Christ – The Chief Shepherd.

8. The Two Ordinances; Water Baptism (observed immediately after
Salvation) and the Lord’s Supper (observed repeatedly after
Salvation) are for Christians only. Heaven and Hell are literal
locations in God’s Creation; Heaven is abode of our Creator and
for all the Saved of the Ages, while Hell and then the Lake of
Fire are reserved for all the Unsaved of all the Ages.

9. The Great Commission of each local church is to Evangelize
everyone possible here and on each foreign field.

10. Jesus Christ is personally and visibly Returning to Earth to
culminate the works of darkness and deliver each believer into
his and her eternal rewards.


These are general beliefs that are worded differently by each local
church or association of churches. Some of the above points vary in
perception or depth as far as doctrinal emphasis. Each Baptist
church is to “Search the Scriptures” and Proclaim the Word of the Lord.
