What does it mean to be a Baptist?

Do you know what it means to be a Baptist? Or what is different about our beliefs and our church from the other churches?

Our high school Student Bible Fellowship just completed a 13 week class on Baptist Distinctives.  The B-A-P-T-I-S-T-S acrostic guided us through this study of Scripture to see what is unique about our doctrine and the way we conduct church. We believe it is the most accurate church model according the Bible.

If you’re not sure what all of these mean, just ask one of our high school students!
