    One of the things that I love about the Baptist Cburch is that it is so diverse. I am interested to know what different parts of the body are represented here. I am thinking that the Southern Baptist would be the most followed by the IFB, yet I could well be wrong,

    So here's some questions,

    1. What Baptist Denominaton are you with?

    2. Have you been with any other Baptist Denominations, (which)

    3. Have you been in another denomination (Which)

    4. Which Baptist denomination do you like the look of, yet have not been to?

    I attend an independent, fundamental Baptist church...but Ben, it's interesting and even a bit disconcerting to see how many "stripes" there are, even inside that very narrow niche. Often you'll find one IFB church refusing to fellowship with another IFB church because of very (in my view) petty disagreements over things like clothing, etc. I find that very sad.

    I actually grew up in what's called the Baptist Bible Fellowship. My parents both graduated from the BBF-affiliated Baptist Bible College, as did I and my younger sister. My father was a missionary with their missions organization as well, and he has pretty much remained loyal to the Fellowship all his life.

    The church I currently attend is not really associated with the BBF, and is very independent. Although my church does support a hefty amount of BBF missionaries.

    Oops, I just realized I didn't answer all your questions.

    As far as denominations I "like the look of," I must admit I've been very impressed with the SBC lately...since the conservative element of the convention has come to the forefront.

    Men like Jack Graham and Adrian Rogers are obviously men of God, men of integrity, and bold in their defense of God's Word.

    This thread reminded me of this joke:

    I was walking across a bridge one day, and I saw a man standing on the edge, about to jump off. I immediately ran over and said "Stop! Don't do it!"

    "Why shouldn't I?" he said.

    I said, "Well, there's so much to live for!"

    "Like what?"

    "Well ... are you religious or atheist?"

    "Religious."

    "Me too! Are you Christian or Jewish?"

    "Christian."

    "Me too! Are you Catholic or Protestant?"

    "Protestant."

    "Me too! Are you Episcopalian or Baptist?"

    "Baptist."

    "Wow! Me too! Are you Baptist Church of God or Baptist Church of the Lord?"

    "Baptist Church of God."

    "Me too! Are you Original Baptist Church of God, or are you Reformed Baptist Church of God?"

    "Reformed Baptist Church of God."

    "Me too! Are you Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1879, or Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915?"

    "Reformed Baptist Church of God, reformation of 1915!"

    To which I said, "Die, heretic scum!" and pushed him off.

    I thought of that too, when I posted that there are so many stripes in the very narrow niche of IFB'ism!

    More truth that anything else in that joke! :D

    1. What Baptist Denominaton are you with? IFB

    2. Have you been with any other Baptist Denominations, (which)? None

    3. Have you been in another denomination (Which)? Non-denom, LDS, attended services at others like e-free, Catholic, Lutheran, Presby. Temple when I was younger (orthodox) and I think that really influenced me and laid the groundwork for easier denial of who Jesus was and made the LDS teachings more acceptable.

    4. Which Baptist denomination do you like the look of, yet have not been to? SBC, but if I was to leave the IFB denom I'd go e-free instead of joining another baptist church most likely, unless God led me otherwise.

    Have some problem since "baptist" and "denomination" are really mutually exclusive terms.

    1. What Baptist FELLOWSHIP to I associate with?
    I am IFB (independent, fundamental) but NOT the new branch that adds legalism and KJV to the old fundamentals of the faith! From the Northern Baptist Convention of old.

    2. Have you been with any other Baptist groups?
    Loosely with the SBC while at First Baptist, Dallas, although never a member. Membership always in an IFB church.

    3. Have you been in another denomination (Which)
    Raised Jewish; tried catholicism, then got gloriously saved at a neighborhood IFB church and been there ever since!

    4. Which Baptist denomination do you like the look of, yet have not been to?
    Reformed Baptist will definitely be next.

    First of all, I am a Christian first, Baptist second. I attend a Baptist church because they believe the entire Bible is true, and they teach it here. That being said:

    1. What Baptist Denominaton are you with? SBC, and in Texas SBT

    2. Have you been with any other Baptist Denominations? SBC, in Texas BGCT

    3. Have you been in another denomination? United Methodist for five years

    4. Which Baptist denomination do you like the look of, yet have not been to? Not sure... wasn't sure there were so many until recently. I'll just go where God leads. [​IMG]
