Lately I have noticed several Baptist Churches are replacing "Baptist" with Bible, Community, or some other general term. Often the reason (or excuse) given is "we want to appeal to those turned off by the name Baptist" Is this something you would consider for your chruch? By taking the name Baptist out, are you no longer a Baptist church? Should Denomanations or Associations such as the SBC or GARBC deny "membership" to churches without the name "Baptist" What if you have the name Baptist in the sub-title: GRACE BIBLE CHURCH a fellowship of Baptists If it sounds like a Baptist If it looks like a Baptist If it preaches like a Baptist But dosent have the name Baptist Then it aint a Baptist!!
