In a previous thread there was an exchange about being identified based on what a person believes. For instance, if a person believes that the sign gifts are not operative today they are commonly called a cessationist. If a person believes in a pretribulational, premillennial rapture of the church the are commonly referred to as a dispensationalist. When it comes to soteriology there are a number of different designations: semi-Pelagian, Pelagian, Calvinist, Doctrines of Grace, Arminian et. al. Eschatology has Preterism, partial-Preterism, premillennialism, historic premillennialism, amillennialism, and postmillennialism. This is just a representative sample. There are more labels than you can shake a stick at. Some people believe being labeled is unnecessary, or even detrimental. But is that the case? Labels can certainly be used for dishonest or divisive reasons. But what if you're new to a town and you're looking for a like-minded church. How would you go about doing so? The last time I moved the Internet wasn't much of a going concern. I couldn't check out church websites. It seems to me that a church website is as routine as a telephone number. It's quite easy to include a link to the church doctrinal statement or "what we believe." If you hold to the FW position wouldn't it make your decision easier if you visited a church website and found that they hold to the 1689 Second London Baptist Confession of Faith as their doctrinal statement? You would probably want to visit another church. Sometimes churches make it easy to know what they believe by their name; i.e. "Free Will Baptist Church"; "Reformed Baptist Church"; or "Full Gospel Baptist Church." Is there a reason why labeling or defining what we believe would be a bad thing to do? If so, why?
