Description of the Subject (Higher Education, e-learning): Baptists.

The Baptist Church was created in 1609 by John Smyth (the Netherlands); is a branch of the Evangelical Protestantism (Christianity), although some Baptists claim not to be Protestant

  1. Its headquarters are in the United States
  2. The Baptist's main doctrine, that distinguishes it from other branches, is that they believe that baptism can only be received by adults (according to the New Testament), and not by children; baptism is by water immersion
  3. Other principles of the Baptist Churches are the freedom of the soul; the salvation is only possible by faith (right actions derived from this), and the autonomy of the local congregation
  4. Baptists recognise two ministerial offices: pastors and deacons
  5. Baptists have always sought absolute freedom of religion as well as they have been one of the groups that have most enhanced the separation between Church and State
  6. There are around 100 million Baptists around the world, with 33 million in the United States, 2.4 in India, 2.5 in Nigeria, and 1.9 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 1.7 million in Brazil, and 1 million in Myanmar
