  • Baptists were formed from the Protestant Reformation, which broke off from the Roman Catholic Church.

    Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, and all of the other denominations are Christian. In that we all believe Christ is the Son of God, and our salvation. But we differ in our doctrines and teachings, and the interpretation of the Bible.

  • baptist is a denomination of Christian. baptists are christians but not all christians are baptist

    according to my hubby who is the son of a baptist preacher, the 1st baptist, 2nd baptist thing is just when the church was made like the 1st baptist church in the town.

  • Baptist is a denomination. Christian is when you say I am a Christian (A Sinner Saved by GRACE. Trusted Jesus as your personal Savior.) First and Second Baptist you just another thing for a name of a church (usually Southern Baptist. Not always..but usually.) Hoped that helped.
