    How do you list the Baptist Distinctives? I have seen several ways, some saying "The 5 Baptist Distinctives" or "The 8 Baptist Distinctives." Those listing 8 usually use the accrostic "BAPTISTS" as a mnemonic device.

    Biblical Authority
    Autonomy of the Local Church
    Priesthood of the Believer
    Two Ordinances
    Individual Soul Liberty
    Saved, Baptized Church Membership
    Two Offices
    Separation of Church and State

    I used the BAPTISTS acrostic in my sermon this past Sunday.
