    Glad to be a member of BaptistBoard!
    I look forward to telling my story and engaging in some greate discussion! Since almost a year ago I have been have been looking for a new church home after 20 years of membership at a local Baptist church. I have come through some very difficult issues and have had to wrestle with various ideas with wich, until then, I had no need to confront. Some of these issues were/are KJVO-ism, Calvinism (and determinism... are they really different?), Libertarian Freewill, Universalism, Baptist history, Fundamentalism and more. I think one thing I'm learning is that the essentials are more important now, and the non-essentials are not so important.

    The BaptistBoard.com has been very helpful in educating myself on many of these topics. Thank you!

    Regards,
    humblethinker

    Welcome to the board.

    Yes, it is the essentials that are essential.
