    Here is one article by Rev. L. K. Landis which asserts that Patrick indeed held to Baptist doctrine and practice.

    Here's another article which says Yes
    http://baptistbulletin.org/?p=14514

    And here's one that seeks to refute Bro. Landis's position.

    One more pro position on St. Patrick as a Baptist:

    The third link is accurate. There are only two extant writings of Patrick, all the others are myths and legends. There is no doubt that Patrick was a born again believer with an exemplary missionary heart, but nothing in his own writings come close to indicating that he was in any form a Baptist, either in name or in practice.

    He is one of my heroes of the faith and a challenge to me, but I don't think there is any way to back him as a Baptist brother.

    Baptists don't hold the market on missionary activity. :)
