The Baptist church structure allows for more local autonomy, as think traditional reform churches much more " from top down", as to what is held and taught.

I can't argue with you there. For years I went to a Baptist Church that other than the pastor himself, they had deacons, that actually acted more like elders. Some preached on occasion, but others did not. I am finding that the Reformed Baptist Church I attend, is not like that. Although there is only one paid pastor with a doctorate in preaching; they do believe in a plurality of elders and they actually call the elders by the title "pastor". Our main pastor preaches most of the time, but the others preach as well and often lead things like Bible studies. One of the things, I have noticed that I like, is they are always trying to make certain they are practicing things like this biblically. I would not be surprised, one day to see actual wine replace the grape juice in communion. If you know Baptist circles, you know that would be a rarity. It seems however, the more they change, inevitably it gets some people upset and they eventually leave. For example some people actually left when it became obvious by his sermons that my pastor was not a Dispensationalist. Apparently many years ago, a pastor was fired in that Church because he was Ammillennial. As you probably guessed, there are families that attended that Church for many years. But my pastor upset the apple cart so to speak. wink

Btw Tom, it was a link that you posted in a different thread some time back (perhaps this same link), that lead me to where I found the lectures I mentioned above. Thanks for that.

There is no such thing as preaching Christ and Him crucified, unless we preach what nowadays is called Calvinism. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else. - C.H. Spurgeon
