I believe we should be proud of who we are. Thought I do not pastor a Baptist Church (I pastor a non-denominational Bible oriented church), if our church were affiliated with a Baptist group, I would not hide that in the title. To me, if you are not proud of the group to which you belong, why do you belong to it?
I know of several Baptist churches that have removed the word "Baptist" from their name, I have known Methodist Churches and others to do this as well.
With all the press of the Paige Patterson fiasco, it seems a new layer of shame is being attached to the name. I think this is unfortunate.
So what do you think?
