Religion

Because of their sinful state, all human beings stand in need of salvation, and God's gracious provision for this consists in the life and work of Jesus Christ.

Politics

Represented in Baptist churches are equally diverse worship styles, cultural mores and approaches to Scriptural interpretation. The resulting challenges and opportunities have made the believers stronger —through fellowship, respect, mutual support and dialog, all based on a belief that unity in Christ involves growth and understanding.

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.
