Why did Baptist church split?
In May 1845, the Baptist congregations in the United States split over slavery and missions. The split created the Southern Baptist Convention, while the northern congregations formed their own umbrella organization now called the American Baptist Churches USA (ABC-USA).
What is the difference between Baptist and Independent Baptist?
In the USA, as near as I can tell, Independent Baptist churches tend to be more conservative in both their beliefs and their practices than Southern Baptist churches, though the Southern Baptist churches’ beliefs are much more conservative than what used to be known as the “mainline” denominations such as the American
Can independent Baptists dance?
As Southern Baptist Churches are autonomous, dancing may be ‘forbidden’ (a rarity among modern SB churches) or it may be cautioned against, as each church leadership body decides.
Do Baptists drink alcohol?
We don’t break out Southern Baptists in our research, but a recent survey sponsored by LifeWay, the publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, showed that about a third of Baptists nationwide admitted to drinking alcohol.
Why is the Baptist church called Baptist?
The original Baptists were given their name due to their practice of immersing those who were sprinkled as infants but later made personal professions of faith in Jesus Christ.
Do Baptists dance?
The congregations lived in harmony, enjoying community and fellowship without allowing their doctrinal differences to interfere. They held dances in which all the members would exuberantly praise God. They held dinner parties where people sipped wine, remembering Jesus’ miracle with the drink.
Do Baptists speak tongues?
For Southern Baptists, the practice, also known as glossolalia, ended after the death of Jesus’ apostles. The ban on speaking in tongues became a way to distinguish the denomination from others. And the IMB will recognize baptisms performed by other Christian denominations so long as they involved full-body immersion.

The Baptist tradition is one of the largest branches of Christianity in America and around the world. Historically, some Protestant denominations have prohibited their members from activities like dancing, drinking alcohol, and gambling.
What religion does not allow you to dance?
In Islam, Salafists and Wahhabis consider dancing in general to be haram (forbidden). Conservative Islamic and Orthodox Jewish traditions prohibit contact between men and women in public (especially those not married to each other), and thus in these societies men and women either dance separately or not at all.
Why do Baptists not celebrate Lent?
Because Lent is not specified within the Bible, Baptists ignore the concept. Of course, if we actually followed this thought pattern, we would not participate in Christmas since observation of the birth of Christ is also not commanded in scripture.
Why do Baptists not believe in drinking?
CLASS. Baptists have long believed that drinking alcohol is not only unhealthy and morally lax, but is in direct opposition to what God wants. Strict interpretation of the Bible is a cornerstone of Baptist belief, and they believe Scripture specifically tells them that drinking alcohol is wrong.
Do Baptists smoke?
Official doctrine or unofficial normative views on smoking vary across the large and diverse set of denominations that constitute Protestantism, making it impossible to isolate an overarching Protestant doctrine on smoking, although conservative or evangelical Protestant faiths such as the Southern Baptists have
Can Christians drink alcohol?
Christian views on alcohol are varied. They held that both the Bible and Christian tradition taught that alcohol is a gift from God that makes life more joyous, but that over-indulgence leading to drunkenness is sinful.
