Baptists are typically considered Protestant, though some Baptists oppose this. They are a denomination of the Christian faith, and their members are baptised to show their faith.
Minor Baptist believes will sometimes vary from church to church, but all Baptists agree on most things:
The fact there is only one God, the Holy Trinity, the virgin mother, the resurrection of Jesus, the need for salvation, grace and heaven.
Baptists believe Jesus will return in flesh.
PULPIT SCREEN PLATFORM
Baptist churches have the following: a cross, a screen, a platform, a baptistery, a communion table and a pulpit.
A pulpit is where the speaker stands.
Screens are for showing power points, videos, or other things.
These were all in Zion Baptist Church .
This is a pulpit- an elevated platform at the front of the church where a member of the clergy stands to deliver a sermon, or to read the Gospel lesson.
All Baptist churches have baptistery pools, where they baptise members of the congregation, usually at birth. This is very an important aspect of a Baptist church.
Most churches have a cross- Baptist churches are no exception. The cross is to symbolise Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection.
Baptists believe in Holy Communion, where members of the congregation are given bread to eat and wine to drink; this symbolises the body and the blood of Jesus. Because of this, Baptist churches have communion tables where this takes place.
Some Baptist churches will have platforms where performances take place.
This is used for presentations, or for the lyrics of hymns. This is usually at the front of the church. These may only be found in more modern Baptist churches, as they are not essential.
Baptist churches are really similar to other churches. They have all the things you would expect in a church, but a big difference is the Baptistery pool, where members of baptised.
