i visited a web site call The Alliance of Baptists it is interesting that of all the sites of religion that i have visited liberal or conservative it is hard if not impossible to find the liberals statement of belief. the alliance of baptist does not have the usual statements of belief in which to expect. normally statements will read its doctrine of faith in Jesus Christ and outline the features of its tenants. how ever liberal web sites of religion are never this way they are none existent in most cases. the alliance of baptist reads this way>>What We Believe From its inception in early 1987, the Alliance has stood for those values that have distinguished the Baptist movement from its beginnings nearly four centuries ago - the freedom and accountability of every individual in matters of faith; the freedom of each congregation under the authority of Jesus Christ to determine its own ministry and mission; and religious freedom for all in relationship to the state.At the same time, we have acknowledged our interdependence as Baptists with the whole people of God regardless of denominational designation. As a result, we have been blessed beyond our wildest dreams with growing relationships with other Baptist bodies, the larger church and beyond.These are the values that have brought together a band of Baptist believers who are at once committed to historic principles and dedicated to the building of bridges between our own noble tradition and the rest of God's people.If these are your values as well, we hope you will consider this as our invitation to join us. <<< now read from a conservative statement of belief>>> We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Jesus, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, and in our redemption through His shed blood.We believe in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His imminent, personal return in power and glory. We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful men. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the saved unto the resurrection of life, and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
