What Is A Baptist?

There are three basic distinctions of Baptists.

  1. Baptists only baptize those who have trusted Christ as their personal Savior. Baptism does not have any "saving power" but it simply and publicly identifies one as a "Believer."
  2. Baptists believe that churches should be autonomous ("self-governing"). History has shown that it is better for a chuch and its leadership to be accountable to the local group of parishioners.
  3. Baptists believe that Jesus Christ is the only Savior for mankind - as the Bible says. The message of Christ in the Scripture is more important than any religious system or dogma.
