    I was looking at the Web page for Faith Baptist, "K-Town" Germany
    This is a "Southern Baptist church" located near the large Ramsteim US Air Force Base
    Thus most of the church is made up of US military families.

    Anyways - on this page entitled "Beliefs" there were several links
    of their beliefs. Four of the items, I have never heard of.

    Nashville Statement


    CBMW has been in operation since 1987, when a meeting in Dallas, Texas, brought together a number of evangelical leaders and scholars, including John Piper, Wayne Grudem, Wayne House, S. Lewis Johnson, James Borland, Susan Foh, and Ken Sarles. These figures were concerned by the spread of unbiblical teaching. Under Piper’s leadership, the group drafted a statement outlining what would become the definitive theological articulation of “complementarianism,” the biblically derived view that men and women are complementary, possessing equal dignity and worth as the image of God, and called to different roles that each glorify him.

    Sounds like more faith in statements than Bible.

    Not necessialry -
    I see it more as explaining the particular doctrine
    For example - Baptism - some denominations will pour or sprinkle and consider acceptable baptism.
    Article VII of the BF&M states "Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water" That leaves no doubt where Southern Baptists stand on Baptism.
