I had a little chuckle over another thread where someone questioned my "baptist-ness" having to do with a particular belief I espoused. This has got me thinking, what is there that unites Baptists and identifies them as Baptists? Is it just an historical accident that gave us all the same name? We surely do not have similar beliefs, except on perhaps one issue, which is of course baptism. But even there not all Baptists believe the same. Plus some non-Baptists believe in believer's baptism by immersion, etc. So what do you say a "Baptist" is?
