Don't you dare worry about names! You are a Spirit-filled Christian---that is ALL that matters! When we set foot in the Kingdom, there will not be any divisions among us---why should we hold onto them when we don't have to?

I know the SBC for decades was very opposed to "pentacostalism." In fact my favorite SBC preacher got investigated by the SBC about 40 years ago for pentecostal practices.  He was found guilty but was allowed to stay in the SBC.

Charles Simpson is his name.  He is now pastor emeritus  of a large pentecostal baptist congregation in Mobile AL. (Covenant Church of Mobile) The senior pastor is his son Steven who is a 3rd generation ordained SBC pastor.  Charles' father Vernon was a SBC missionary in the Lousiana bayous back in the 1940s.   He was also a pentecostal.  

So there is actually a long (if unofficial) heritage of Baptist pentecostals.

BTW, It was Charles Simpson Ministries which was formerly called Integrity Communications that gave birth to Integrity Hosanah.

Fenton,
 ::idea::
You think you might be Bapticost?

Oh wait   ::doh::  it sounds like it is charismatic.  You got any charisma, or is you boring like me. ???  Pentist would work but it is already taken by a corporation in San Antonio.

Cheers,
Carey.

Not sure Protestant would be classified as a "denomination," however your idea is still correct............Jesus is neither Protestant or Catholic, or any such.............He is God, He is our Lord and Saviour..........and we all who believe in Him are part of the One True Church, and that Church is Chirst-denominational!    (well, sorta............  ::smile::)

John was not a baptist.... He was a Baptizer which means to make overwhelmed - fully wet
(he didn't start the baptist church anyway...)

I attend a pentecastal church(Life Church) in Mobile. They where Lott Rd Baptist until the Sr. Pastor Dick Brasswell and his wife, Pat, where filled with the Holy Spirit, and ended up being ask to leave the SBC.

John the Baptist did'na start the Baptist church?  OH SNAP!  He wasn't a baptist, he was a baptizer?
 ::headscratch::
why did'na they call him John the Baptizer?
 ::doh::
these deep theological discussions give me a serious headache
 ::pondering::
uh, or maybe it's 'cuz I'm over here
 ::frustrated::
I dunno, maybe, maybe not.

I wonder if John the Baptist did'na start the Baptist church, you think the Baptist church would baptize John?
 ::pondering::
Would the Catholic church sprinkle him?
 ::pondering::
OH, SNAP!  He did'na start the Catholic church did he?
 ::headscratch::
 ::shrug::
 ::idea::
I know, I know, he started the First Church of Locust 'n' Wild Honey!

Well, some would call me a Catholic.

I call myself a Christian. I call all Christians Christians. We have got to stop dividing up into smaller bands of Christians and harping on all of our differences.

How about instead we all harp together on Christ like Paul said for us to do? Not PC. I don't care what's PC.
