    I am posting this with permission from the family. One of our members @Alan has gone on to be with the Lord last week. Alan was a great contributor here, and was a blessing and encouragement to many on Online Baptist. Alan will truly be missed on this earth, but he is now with our creator. Please keep the family in your prayers during this time as there are details that need to be worked out. 
    Please feel free to comment below on how Alan was an encouragement and/or blessing to you.

    Alan has been a blessing to me on many occasions in the past and recently as well, both privately and publicly. His insight will be missed but, the Lord has need of Him.

    This distinction is critically important Bro. Matt. I have started a series of adult Sunday School lessons at our church that makes this distinction very clear. It is a series on church history in which the main theme is that it is not the name "Baptist" that is important, it is the doctrine.
    I have never heard this taught in the context of church history. Most try to teach that one can trace an unbroken line of churches or baptisms and trace church history. I don't believe it. But I do believe that we can know a true New testament church by their doctrine, which will be the same doctrine that was taught by Jesus and His Apostles.
    This is not said to lessen the name Baptist; for I believe that a true New Testament church will be found within the ranks of those who call themselves Baptists.
    2 Timothy 2:2 (KJV) And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

    Great I look forward to seeing your new website. I enjoy looking at church websites to see what it on them. 
    I can see where the name of church can be a detriment to someone on deputation from your church. Most of the missionaries that come through here I already know their home church.

    My local church is changing it's name from Decatur Chapel (Happy may remember us by that) to Decatur Baptist. We're still adhereing to the IFB tenets, instead of moving away from them.  Probably wouldn't set well with the liberal leaning crowd for us to be going the other way.

    We had some of our own go on deputation in the past and they had to go the extra mile explaining we're not a non-denominational local church. One said she thought it might have cost her some support but we can't know those things for sure. We had changed our sign out front to reflect we were and Independent Baptist some years back but retained the Decatur Chapel on it. It will help folks in the the area know where we stand, to some degree. We're having a new website built too, when it's finished I'll share with you all.

    The doctrine is more important than the name, so I'm glad that you are changing the name to reflect your position.

    I had considered changing our name from Bible Baptist Church to either Foundation Baptist Church or Pillar and Ground Baptist Church-primarily because of the association that Bible Baptist has come to have with Ruckman. But haven't done so. Perhaps when we are able to purchase our own building again, (or if), then I might do it.

    This is wonderful, sounds like a move in the right direction in a day when some are dropping the name Baptist. Shame on any who do!

    I got to see Dr. Hovind back in '94 I believe it was at my old church. I didn't get to hear him every night because of work but I did catch two lectures. He was good.
    You are right about him now getting off into post-millennialism and some other peculiar things.

    I think I may have seen one of them, though mostly I have watched Kent Hovind's 7-part seminar on creation, very good. He has gone now into some things I don't know that I agree with, but his creation seminar is still very good.

    Has anyone watched these? I thought it was interesting how the downed trees in Spirit Lake below Mt. St. Helens are sinking by the roots first and making an underwater forest which will not long hence become petrified...like the petrified forrest in Arizona. It doesn't take millions of years.

    1Timothy115 got a reaction from John Young in Easter   
    I dislike the possible origin of this day and the continuing commercialism as much as anyone else. For many here Easter is a name, its just a name. 
    We need to be concerned with eternity, not the name of a day. A lot of lost people, including the 2-day a year religionists, will attend an Easter service. Hopefully they will hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ on that morning, they will probably not attend a second service that day. It is doubtful they will hear the truth any other time or place either. So call it what they will, we need to seize another opportunity to share and preach the Gospel. The goal is not how we feel about the name of a day, it's who comes to receive Jesus as Savior.
    All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. [John 6:37]

    I just ask, "So, where did THEY come from? And did they plant the universe in place, as well? Did they supply the open space to put the universe into? You can't have aliens without having the same questions of origins.
