Abstract

Treating Baptists and evangelicals in the same article is both problematic and understandable ([24]; [48]). Historically, Baptists (American and Southern) are defined by commitments to religious liberty and local church autonomy. They have been wary of creeds, because of the tendency to displace faith with doctrinal beliefs. Evangelicalism is a difficult term to define, and clarifying who is and who is not an evangelical is even more troublesome. Conferences have been convened to attempt to discover common affinities among diverse groups who claim the designation [21].
