    Politics

    The state should not use its authority to promote particular religious beliefs, nor should it require prayer or worship in the public schools. However, the state should leave students free to practice their own religious convictions.

    Religion

    Local church is the fundamental unit of mission in denominational life.

    Denomination: Baptist

    Views

    The strong feature of Baptism is that prayers are not only led by a minister, but often by a local preacher - a lay person who has been trained and authorized to lead worship and preach.
