    About 2 miles from where we are meeting in Cookeville, there is a church building sitting in a curve, up high on a hill.

    The sign is down at the base of the hill next to the road, it is rather large, but it has to be.

    It reads:

    United Christian Methodist Baptist Church of Christ

    I have seen over around Richmond Kentucky a church called a United Baptist Methodist.

    What do ya'll know about these kinds of people? Are they just unable to decide or what?

    Smells like the joining together of the parts of churches that have fallen apart for lack of conviction that are unwilling to give up the label that they no longer understand or have real connection to. I would be willing to put up a doughnut and a cup of coffee that it is run by Free Mansions. [​IMG]

    Hello Bro. Ken4JC,
    Good to see ya. I would like a cup of coffee and doughnuts, you mean that this group is led by free masons?

    I would not have a problem agreeing with you.

    God Bless you,
    Bro. Dallas

    Bro Dallas:

    I wonder if it isn't just two congregations that have shared the same building and have finally decided to amalgamate.

    There is a history of churches here in MO back many many years ago where the Methodists and Baptists shared the building. There wasn't much difference in these groups. I don't know what kind of Methodist they would be classfied as, though.

    I've heard of a group called Primitive Methodist, but I don't know if that's what they would be. Just a thought.

    Methodist can be a way of doing church, not just a denomination. It is not that unusal to see baptists and church of christ together. Especially in the more progressive congregations

    Dear Bethelassoc,
    There is the same thing in history around S. central Ky. Especially among Methodists and Baptists sharing buildings, especially while one or the other were either building a building or just beginning.

    Many among Methodist and Baptist friends (elderly) tell me their used to be very little difference in these groups. The biggest I guess would have been sprinkling children.

    the free willism or low arminianism of the UMC now cannot be said to have been exclusive to them in history any more than it can at present.

    Many Baptist churches in this area still have 'mourners' benches in them, though they are rarely used in most, this is something many 'kept' when they later had their own buildings I am told.

    Go2church, what do you mean by 'a way of doing church'? Do you mean the organization?

    God Bless
    Bro. Dallas

    A teacher that I work with spoke of these set ups when she was growing up. She said that it was basically the same congregation but a different preacher would preach to them.

    Usually, one side would "buy out" the other.

    Agree with some, sounds what is called in these parts a "Union Church." Or more properly a "Union Meeting House." The church I am a member of meets in a building that was once a "Union Meeting House" in that at one time Presbyterians, Old School Baptists, Methodists, and Episcopalians all used the same building, on different weekends. The Presbyterians and Episcopal congregations died out, and the Methodists built their own building many years ago, leaving us with this property exclusively.

    What would you call our church?

    We are meeting in the building of a Primitive Baptist church with whom we are not in fellowship.

    Are we a Primitive Baptist Primitive Baptist Church? :D

    There are still a couple meeting houses, used this way a couple counties over, I believe.

    Frogman, I'm interested in finding out what the purpose of their name is for, if you get the chance.

    Well, it seems that the UM that I have attended to date are well clad with the FM and they all seem to hold the line of power for the organization by money and position. I have seen the same face in the SBC. The presence of the FM in membership of any Church is a move to Universalism and Pagan worship. The connection of the UM and Baptist ‘fill in the blank’ further points to a universalism that is a tradition of rejection of the Holy Bible. I will have to find a good way to get the coffee -n- doughnuts to you. [​IMG]

    Dear Brother K4JC,
    I have gathered some information regarding reports of sound churches in your area. I will send them to you later this evening.

    As you know, you can visit those I send you and the determination to fellowship with them or not I leave to your own ability to judge by scripture.

    May God richly Bless you in your walk and service with him.
