Did you ever belong to another non Baptist Denomination before becoming a Baptist?
My family used to attend a RCC growing up, but since salvation I have always been baptist, I was saved in the church we are members of, I can't see me ever being anything but baptist.
No...18 years Church of Christ (first 18 years of my life), then about 17 years of evangelical...from there I bacame Baptist and plan to remain so...
Did leave the Methodists when I was about 3 ....
I used to be a pagan... Does that count?
I've always been in a SBC church.
Me too...Been Southern Baptist all my life.
I was raised in the Church of England, both schooling and church. I attended a Plymouth Brethren assembly in LOndon after school. When I decided on ministry, I had to join a Baptist Church because PB's didn't have ministers. I served as a Baptist minister for 56 years, and in retiredment returned to the Anglican Church of Canada. (no Baptist Church in my area).
I went to a Church of England school. On becoming a Christian I attended an Elim Pentecostal church and then various churches after that. When we moved to Gloucestershire the Lord led us to a Baptist church and we immediately felt at home there. I was Baptised in that church 22 July 2001 and can't imagine being anything but a Baptist now.
No. I was raised in a RCC.
My paternal grandfather was Irish and Roman Catholic...
Both my grandfathers were Baptist pastors, so yes, I have always been a Baptist. My family has been Baptist for several generations.
I didn't become a Baptist until I
was 8 years old. That was 54 years ago
wow, Sue I had no idea.
raised in the RCC, saved and attended a Baptist church (have no idea specifically what type of Baptist - it was overseas), then Evangelical Free, then Church of the Nazarene, now Independent Baptist for almost 22 years
On my mother's side, there have been Baptists for as many generations as we can identify. An ancestor founded the Baptist church in the Breckinridge County, KY, town where many of my people originated. My father's side were mostly Lutherans, but, as I have done genealogical research, I have found the odd Baptist (I guess that is a redundancy) there as well.
But, as I used to tell people when I was asked to do a funeral for someone who, they THOUGHT, used to be a Baptist, "Just because a cat is born in a garage, it is not necessarily a Cadillac."
"Just because a cat is born in a garage, it is not necessarily a Cadillac."
Interesting poll, Ben.
I was born in a Baptist hospital in Miami OK. Does that count??
My father was the first Baptist on his side of the family, but he preached the Gospel for over 60 years before being called Home.
My great grandfather on my mother's side was a Baptist preacher and a Texas cowboy. His three sons became Baptist evanglists. Grandad had six daughters and no sons, but they all married Baptist preachers. I followed along, so my Baptist preacher son is now the 5th generation.
i've attended baptist churches most my life. never had a membership, never will. not at any church.
you people may poke me as a baptist... but i dont go by denominations... and i dont go by "non-denomonational" either... cause that's essentially a denomonation.
im just a part of the true body of Christ. praise the Lord for that!
After 30 years in the UCC (Congregational), I bolted for Baptist because of Bible-only reputation. Been Baptist for 15 years - one of the best moves I ever made in my life. Thank you Lord.
