I can't vote in this poll--I was raised Reform Jewish--and that's not listed. I guess I could vote "none".

I can put that in if I can figure out how to edit. Give me a second here, okay?

I was raised Baptist, got saved as in college, came home from college, moved out of my folks house, joined a Mennonite church, and just this past year returned to an IFB church.

I can't figure out how to edit the poll part. I should have put in "none of the above" but I forgot. Sorry. :oops:

No problem--I just voted "None"--I don't think you can edit the poll once you post it and people start voting.

I'm an Independent Fundamental Baptist now. Born again, blood washed Jewish believer in 1974. :D

Well we were raised Anglican. They are not much different than the Catholic faith, however there are some differences.
Anglican is not an option up there. Would you like me to vote other or would you like to edit the options to have the Anglican denomination added? :)

However it really doesn't matter to me what I was, what is most important is who I am now!!! Praise GOD for opening my eyes and heart....nothing but the blood of Jesus.

I was raised a Baptist (SBC to be specific). I have a two uncles who are Baptist Pastors and two others who are deacons. I was very lucky to be raised with an extended family that was all devoted to Christ.

My family was Independent until I was 7 then they got in a tiff with another couple in the church. I was recently saved at 6 1/2 when they pulled me out of my church. We never really got back stable into a church, most of them we tried were SBC, unfortunately...Then the Lord led us back to our church again which is IFB when I was 12. Have been here every since, my parents don't really attend like they should, they were extremely active when we were in the church before.

We didn't have a denomination. When I was a kid my Mom would either send me to the Methodist church or the Christian church for Sunday School and Vacation Bible School.

It took me many years after I was saved to find where I belonged, Fundamental Baptist!

I think Episcopalian in North America is the same thing as Anglican (as far as terms go).

I was raised mostly as Catholic - not die hard though. A few years of Catechism in the Catholic church and a few years of confirmation in the Anglican. With a smattering of Pentecostal Sunday School and a year or two with the Salvation Army thrown in. Never got the Gospel at any of these places. Saw a lot of hypocrisy.

Later, in Nov. 92, I got saved through the Alliance Church - but have since become solid, Independent Fundamental Baptist (since July 98).

Good point about not hearing the Gospel message. In all my years of Sunday School and Vacation Bible School at the Methodist and Christian churches, I never heard the Gospel message either.

I never knew about being "born again" or any such thing until I was on a date one night and she asked me if I believed in life after death. That started a long conversation about God, Jesus, the Bible and salvation; which led to me doing some serious praying and Bible reading and attending church with her, which led to the Holy Ghost showing my need for salvation and my being born again!

I was raised Baptist, BMA, http://www.baptisttrumpet.com/ never really questioned it.

The BMA Churches are completely self governing, they only work together in order to do mission work and such, they have 1 meeting per year, and each church can send 3 messengers, I believe it is. In recent years some of them have gotten a bit liberal.

The Baptist Church I'm pastor of is Independent though.

But, when God started calling me, for about one year, I did some serious searching, on our Baptist teachings, as well as others. When I was satisfied in my mind that Baptist were correct and I was not a Baptist just because I was raised Baptist, them I could walk down the church aisle and surrender to the Lord to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I know way to many, who are in a church, just because that was were their parents attended.

As well as many Baptist, who don't have no idea why they are Baptist, nor even what the Baptist really teach.

You know, here a few years ago, some Baptist Churches started taking the name Baptist off their church, they claimed it was a hindrance to them. :shock:

We had a thread discussing this issue a while back - and we believe it is a sad thing when the compromise is due to an ecumenical stand or a desire to fit in more with the lost or the other apostate churches. We don't know the reasons for every church that changes its name, but the ones that do it to fit in or get more members, it is serious compromise and displeasing to the Lord!

I became a Baptist (especially an IFB one) when I learned what Baptist theology and disttinctives were. I was doing some indepth research on Bible versions in the fall of 97 and in 98 (by January 98 I had become KJVonly - but I still am always reading good research and info on the issue - but not as much as in that first year or two), and kept coming across the name David Cloud - unfortunately, some websites that presented the position of KJVonly were Ruckmanites or Riplingerites - and Riplinger has a section in one of her books called "O Madman" where she slanders Cloud and calls him a Bible corrector, etc. So whenever I heard his name, I just ignored it. But as time went on, I came across more and more of his articles - especially when I started doing research on Christian living and CCM music. I thought, this guy is as separated as I am - more reading... Wow, this guy's doctrine is the same as mine! - More reading... Hey, this guy is IFB - that must be what I am too then! He had a list of IFB churches in the city where I lived, and here I am today, almost 8 years later.

I suppose I have always been a KJO person. I have never bought any other versions of the Bible, never felt a need to, even thou these MV's have become so popular thru the years. And most Churches I have been associated with, the majority of the members have stayed with the KJO.

I bought and read one book, Things That are Different Are Not The Same by Mickey Carter, it was enough to let me know, I had no need of a MV.
