Independent Baptist churches (also referred to as Independent Fundamental Baptist, or IFB) are Christian churches holding to generally Baptist beliefs. Like all Baptists they are characterized by being independent from the authority of denominations and church councils. However, the reason for the distinction, "independent," is that they eschew even the Baptist conventions or associations in which other Baptist churches participate (although many Independent Baptist churches do belong to fellowships). They remain autonomous and congregationalist in nature and are generally fundamentalist in teaching. The IFB movement is not a denomination per se, but there are similarities that run throughout most Independent Baptist churches. For other uses, see Christian (disambiguation). ...

History

In the wake of the advancement of modernism and liberalism into National Baptist denominations and conventions in the late 1800s and earlier 1900s in both the United States and England, many Baptist local churches began to feel that the core elements of and doctrines of the Christian Faith, such as the nature of God, the infallibility of the Bible, the literal person of Jesus Christ as both God and man, the nature of the Trinity, the literal resurrection of Christ and the need for Christians to be separate from worldliness were being watered down and abandoned. Although during same time period mainline denominations were struggling with the Fundamentalist-Modernist Controversy, many within these local Baptist churches felt that any association with Liberalism/Modernism even in the forum of debate was tantamount to compromise and was therefore unscriptural. As a result many of these local Baptist churches separated from their former denominations and conventions and reestablished themselves as independent churches. Oftentimes within these Denominational churches more conservative elements would often set about establishing new Independent Baptist churches instead of remaining within the denominational churches.[1] For Christian theological modernism, see Liberal Christianity and Modernism (Roman Catholicism). ...

Current developments

In the last 20 to 30 years, the use of the King James Version (King-James-Only Movement) and the use of Contemporary Christian music in worship services, more Calvinistic teaching, and the issue of Lordship salvation have divided many IFB churches.[2] Topics in Christianity Movements · Denominations · Other religions Ecumenism · Preaching · Prayer Music · Liturgy · Calendar Symbols · Art · Criticism Important figures Apostle Paul · Church Fathers Constantine · Athanasius · Augustine Anselm · Aquinas · Palamas · Luther Calvin · Wesley Arius · Marcion of Sinope Archbishop of Canterbury · Catholic Pope Coptic Pope · Ecumenical Patriarch Christianity Portal This box:      See technical...

Distinguishing elements

Independent Baptist churches are very conservative in their beliefs and many are still conservative in their styles of worship. They tend to reject many things found in many denominational churches because they believe in the doctrine of separation; based on the command to "be ye separate."[3] They may exclude the following, depending on the individual church: Taken during a Hindu prayer ceremony on the eve of Diwali. ...

  • rock and roll and other forms of modern music, including contemporary Christian music,
  • Dancing
  • certain contemporary dress styles such as trousers on women or long hair and earrings on men.
  • visiting movie theaters,
  • drinking of alcohol,
  • use of tobacco,
  • sex outside of marriage between one man and one woman, such as premarital sex, extra-marital sex, and homosexuality,
  • and abortion. (in some cases, all forms of birth control are opposed).

They tend also to support conservative American politics, with one notable exception—the general consensus opposes school vouchers, on the basis that such vouchers, if accepted by church-operated schools, would allow the government a "foothold" into the teachings and practices of the individual church and give it authority to dictate what could and could not be taught. Rock and roll (also spelled Rock n Roll, especially in its first decade), also called rock, is a form of popular music, usually featuring vocals (often with vocal harmony), electric guitars and a strong back beat; other instruments, such as the saxophone, are common in some styles. ...

King James Bible debate

Many Independent Baptist churches and associated educational institutions support exclusive use of the King James Bible or other Bible translations based on the Textus Receptus (Received Text) Greek New Testament and the Masoretic (but non Biblia Hebraica or Leningrad Text) Hebrew Old Testament.[4] This page is about the version of the Bible; for the Harvey Danger album, see King James Version (album). ...

Note: Judaism commonly uses the term Tanakh to refer to its canon, which corresponds to the Protestant Old Testament. ...


Other IFB churches have moved to newer translations such as the New King James Version, New American Standard Bible and the New International Version. These churches that use newer translations accept that there are disagreements on some textual issues but feel the most important issue is what the King James translators themselves fought for — that the common man should have the Bible in his common language. Some IFBs feel that even the latest revision of the King James Version (made in 1769) is very different from common American English today.

Fundamentalist colleges and universities are divided on which Greek text to use. Several colleges hold that other texts including the Byzantine and Alexandrian texts should also be compared and used. These would include Bob Jones University, Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary, Central Baptist Theological Seminary, Detroit Baptist Theological Seminary[5], Maranatha Baptist Bible College, Northland Baptist Bible College, and Temple Baptist Seminary. However, other colleges support the idea that the Textus Receptus is the best and the only Greek text that should be used as a source for New Testament translation. These colleges include Ambassador Baptist College, Arlington Baptist College, Heartland Baptist Bible College, Hyles-Anderson College, Pacific Baptist College, Pensacola Christian College, Crown College, and West Coast Baptist College.

Spanish versions

Even though there is a unanimous stand on using the Authorized King James Version (KJV) in English, for the Spanish language the IFBs suffered a rift in their camp after pastor Elmer Fernández parted company with pastor Mickey Carter since the latter affirmed that the Reina-Valera 1960 is an "Elephant in the Living Room", that is, saying it is unacceptable. KJVO pastors who are not familiar with Spanish linguistics use the Reina-Valera 1909 Version in Spanish due to the belief that newer Bible versions have various problems in text and translation. However, these churches are not really united in their stand in light of their many projects to come up with a new Bible in Spanish; this was what prompted some of their fellow Hispanic pastors to challenge them. A more thorough defense in Spanish of the RV60 has become a safeguard for those native speakers.

Outreach

Many Independent Baptist churches have very organized outreach ministries such as weekly "soul winning," in which groups go and evangelize areas surrounding the church building. Many churches will also have “bus ministries”, in which volunteers drive church buses or vans to surrounding areas to bring people (mostly children) to the church's services. A few still practice "street preaching," the open-air preaching of the Gospel in a public setting such as a park or street corner, though this is very rare. Like many other types of churches, Independent Baptist churches often have prison ministries and send missions or evangelists to other parts of the country or to other countries to start more local churches. [This is done in accordance with Matthew 28 verses 19 & 20. "19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."] Look up evangelist in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Some Independent Baptist churches have dismayed moderate Baptists and other evangelical Christians by using outreach techniques that many American Christians consider tasteless and inappropriate for modern Western culture.[6] These techniques include marching in local parades with signs urging watchers to repent.[7] Critics say the aggressive techniques used by fundamentalist groups give Christians a bad name. Not all Independent Baptist churches use these techniques.


Bible college movement

Many IFB churches start and maintain their own bible colleges. These colleges are often unaccredited and rely heavily on an "apprentice" approach to education, rather than extensive formal training in ancient languages of the Bible, systematic theology, and hermeneutics. An example of one of these unaccredited colleges is Hyles-Anderson College in Lake County, Indiana. This college was started by First Baptist Church of Hammond in Hammond, Indiana. A Bible college is a tertiary education institution for the purpose of instructing students to prepare them for ordination to Christian ministry (i. ...

In more recent years, some IFB colleges such as Maranatha Baptist Bible College have been accredited (receiving accreditation in 1993). This movement by IFB Colleges has become more prevalent as college administrators have begun to recognize the difficulty of their students in transferring their education credits to other colleges or universities. Maranatha Baptist Bible College is an independent, fundamental, Baptist college in Watertown, Wisconsin, offering undergraduate degrees in Biblical Studies, Biblical Counseling, Pastoral Studies, Evangelism, Church Ministries, Womens Ministries, Youth Ministries, Missions, Missionary Aviation, Accounting, Management Information Systems, Marketing Management, Office Management, Business Management, Business Education, English Education, History Education...

Independent Baptist churches (which may be referred to as Independent Fundamentalist Baptist, or IFB) are Christian churches holding to generally Baptist beliefs.
The term Independent Baptist was applied to these unaffiliated churches in the late 1800s and early 1900s when national Baptist denominations and conventions in the United States and England started modernising and liberalising.
Independent Baptist churches are very conservative in their beliefs and styles of worship.
What Makes a Baptist Church  an Independent Baptist Church (2767 words)
Independent Baptists believe that a definite, specific plan has been revealed in the Scriptures of how the work of God is to be carried out by His churches.
True independent Baptists accept the fact that since the only organization established and sanctioned in the New Testament is the local church, that it must be the organization that God intended to carry out His work.
Independent Baptist churches can strive to work together with one another so long as they are in agreement with their mission, with their message, and with their method.
