How many Baptist denominations are there?Do they all agree in doctrine and theology,if not why not?
Clint found a list one of our moderators had complied and shared it with us a few months back. I believe there were 143 different flavors of Baptists and, no, they do not agree on many things.
What all baptists don't agree on something?
Next they will be sprinkling babies ...
There are 27 nationally recognized Baptist Denomiational organizations with a recognized National Headquarters. Of those, many of them are splintered into regional groups that have little or no fellowship and might be considered seperate but are not separately incorporated or organized.
How many actually baptize?
As far as I know, they all immerse.
That works for Baptists
And Dr. Bob might have to correct me on this ... But, don't some of the reformed camp practice Paedobaptism?
As to the OP, a list (still a work in progress) is available at:
HOW DO WE COUNT THE BAPTISTS?
But those aren't Baptists. They are Presbyterians (descended from Scottish and English Calvinists) and Reformed (descended fromn the Dutch and German Calvinists).
Squire... this is going to test my memory.. but if i recall right, when I was working in Alabama (Mobile, to be exact) there was a Baptist church that didnt baptize AT ALL. I am trying to remember the name of that group, I know its spread all over the country, but I just cant recall the name of the group. I dont know if they are some kind of very extreme hyper-dispensationalists or what.. but I remember the deaf man who led the ministry at Dauphine Way Baptist church told me about it and said his parents attended there when they were still alive.
Because there are so many flavors of Baptists, you can never say never about what particular church or group practices.
If it doesn't quack like a duck, waddle like a duck, swim like a duck, it ain't a duck. It doesn't matter what the bird says.
I was born and raised just outside Mobile and my relatives are still there. My mother is building a new house in Mobile now.
Roy, a member here, lives in Mobile. Maybe he's heard of some such church but not I! There were churches so small that they either had to borrow a baptismal pool or baptize in the bay.
So when they tell me they are baptists:
Can I quote you and say:
'Cause there are some around DTS that kinda claim they are baptist when it suits them ...
