This is a spinoff from the thread on What Makes a Church Baptist. Although I don't think any New Testament church has been perfect, I do think Baptists have come closest in its doctrines and practices. I also believe that there are other congregations that do not wear the name Baptist which are very close to New Testament teachings and practice. Now let's turn it around. What doctrines disqualify a congregation from being a true New Testament Church? Are there also practices or ecclesiology which would disqualify? Ready, set.....release the hounds!
