Okay, so call me uninformed, but I would like to know the major doctrinal beliefs of a "Landmark Missionary Baptist". Let me give you the history. My grandparents were involved in starting a Missionary Baptist Church in the early 1900's. It was a very small country church and was always called "Missionary Baptist" (complete with small graveyard), but it seemed as if its beliefs swung somewhat depending on what preacher they could get. They even went through a militant period where my grandmother was "churched" for visiting the Southern Baptist Church in town about three times. She was actually voted out by the entire church including her daughter and husband. Of course, I understand this is obviously probably not very typical, but an amusing story from the "40s or early 50s" anyway. I visited the church building today for the first time in about 40 years. Its new sign has the name of my grandparent's as the name of the church then "Landmark Missionary Baptist Church". I never did understand what their beliefs were and I doubt they are mainstream of Landmark or Missionary Baptist, but what are the actual doctrinal beliefs? Maybe if you can compare them to something I am familiar with such as SBC it would help since I am simply not that well versed in other Baptist churches since I did grow up in SB churches. How about eternal security among other doctrines? THANKS to those who can help fill me in.
