I can, however, tell you the difference between a Northern Baptist preacher and a Southern Baptist preacher. A Northern Baptist preacher will say "There ain't no hell." A Southern Baptist preacher will say "The hell there ain't!" :P



I am wondering if you are just pretending or if you genuinely don't understand the joke I am making....let me make it more explicit, is there anywhere a denomination called 'The First Baptist Church' to which all churches called 'The First Baptist Church' belong? If not, it is a rather strange naming convention.

No, it flew completely over my head, sorry. My daughter and her family are due to arrive within the hour, I'm taking three days off next week to spend time with them, which means the two projects I'm working on that are due next Friday needed to be at a certain point before the end of the day today. In other words, I was sorely distracted. My apologies.

Are not most "non-denominational" churches cloaked Baptists?

Yes, but you'll never in a million years get one to admit it. :fyi:

Ask the Protestant pastor what church he grew up in and, assuming he had a generally good early experience then, you will have some idea of the theology of the church he leads now. Also, with the rise of Pentecostalism it is not uncommon to find a lot of emphasis on the Holy Spirit in these "cloaked Baptist" non-denominational churches.

The Southern Baptist church I went to (a loooong time ago) did everything it could do to separate itself from its Baptist roots. The church's name didn't have Baptist in it. The Sunday School material was not Baptist. No Baptist events were posted on the bulletin board. The word Baptist was not mentioned on Sunday morning. (Although, if you went to a business meeting the SBC affiliation was not hidden.)

Anyway, a friend who had been away from the Baptist fold for a very long time came to the service one Sunday morning. After about ten minutes he leaned toward me and whispered, "You tried to fool me. This is a Baptist church, isn't it."

Modern American evangelicalism is pretty much Baptist in belief, 'non-denominational' is almost always Baptist without the name, so is anything labeled 'Evangelical' e.g. The Evangelical Free Church' or 'The (location) Evangelical Church' etc

From the first time I saw one many years ago, until today... I have always though that a "Second Baptist Church" was the oddest name for a church. Not that churches would ever admit to being in competition with each other, but who would want to be known as "Second"?

Philly has a (midly famous) "Tenth Presbyterian Church".
