  • Free Will Baptists are Arminian, Southern Baptists tend toward Calvinism. Southern Baptists tend to believe once saved, always saved. However free will baptists believe that a person can denounce their faith and thus give up the opportunity of getting into heaven.

  • I was raised Baptist (or Bapticostal as I call it) and I never understood the differences. I don't claim any denomination now - I'm a child of God and I attend where I am spiritually fed.

  • I would like for someone who believes you can NEVER fall from grace explain it - fully. I had a COC member try to tell me that once - his example. John accepts Christ on Wednesday - on Saturday night while cheating on his wife in a motel, John is struck with a heart attack and according to this COC member -John goes to heaven because of Grace. He couldn't explain the part about getting caught in sin. I just don't buy it. I professed Christ in 1979 - I die in 1997, having lived every year without following God's word or even seeking God's instruction on my life - you gonna tell me that I'm making it past the gates because I once professed acceptance but never acted upon it - citing only Grace - that's nonsense and God is not in it.
