There seem to be a lot of misconceptions on the BB about the Fundamentalist movement by both its opponents and its adherents. I'd like to make this an informative thread, showing how many different kinds of Fundamentalist fellowships and associations there are, including non-Baptist groups. Please, no one make this a Fundamentalist bashing thread. Start your own if you want to disagree with Fundamentalist doctrine or practice, which is by no means always easy to pin down. Debate about the characteristics of different groups is, of course, welcome. Here is the pattern I am looking for, as illustrated by our fellowship here in Hokkaido. Name: Hokkaido Fundamental Pastors Fellowship, or HFPF, nickname "Huffpuff," which is what our preachers do in the pulpit! Constituents: all IFB, but from various groups: BWM, BBF, Japanese independents, non-board IFB, etc. Anyone is welcome who calls himself a Fundamentalist. School: Asahikawa Bible Research Institute, or ABRI Numbers: 6-10 missionaries and Japanese pastors come to the meetings. Others would like to come, but can't make the trip. Stand on versions: We have no unified stand on the versions issue. Most of us use the "Shinkaiyaku" translation (similar to the NASV), but there are a couple of die-hard "Classical Japanese Bible" advocates. There are no "KJV-type" Bibles in print in Japan. Stand on separation: We have no unified stand on separation, but all are separationists to one degree or another.
