Apparel wise these two religions have separate beliefs as well. In some Baptist churches, women are not able to wear pants in the sanctuary. Baptist believe that as long as you don’t wear pants in the sanctuary that everything is kosher. Pants are ok out of the sanctuary. Apostolic believe that women should not wear anything that pertains to a man. They believe that pants are for men only according to Deuteronomy 22: 5. Accessories are worn in abundance by the Baptist, but apostolic believes that it should be the inward adornment of a person that should shine and that modest apparel is best.

Both initially originating in the Himalaya and written in Sanskrit, Buddhism and Hinduism are two of the main religions on the continent of Asia. Many believe that Buddhism first originated in Northern India in the 5th century B.C.E. when Siddhartha Guatama (the son of a king) rebelled against his father and went out into the world in hope of finding a way to end suffering . After trying many things, he eventually sat down
Baptism is the sacramental rite that admits an adherent into the Christian Church community. It has origins with of John the Baptist as described in the Gospels, available through the recounts from Paul.
Buddhism originated from India, and was founded by Prince Siddharta Gautama, who later came to be known as Buddha, or the enlightened one. Born of a princely caste, he later renounced his comfortable life in search for nirvana. In order to do that, he joined a band of ascetic, who was a group of Hindu priests.
I am Baptist because I believe in baptism by emersion and a symbolic Lords supper. While the aforementioned are the two main separating qualities of a Baptist there is room for differing views on things
Every week, approximately sixty to seventy devoted followers of Jesus gather in a traditional, white church building nestled by the woods, across from a horse pasture on the edge of the small, mostly blue-collar town of Sparta, Michigan. As they take their seats, those with gray to white hair fill the pews to the left of the aisle, while those whose in their middle age fill the pews to the right, along with a dozen middle and high school students in the back. Baptist Bible Church (BBC) was founded in 2008 and led by a part-time interim pastor until a full-time pastor could be found. However, since their founding as well as their leader's passing in 2010, BBC has been unsuccessful in finding the right pastor for the job and has continued
In my experience at first progressive Baptist Church I was very much out of my comfort zone because not only did I not feel as welcomed but it was a little awkward because of all the looks I was receiving. I felt I was not dressed as they were and felt as if I didn't fit in and right away I just didn't feel appropriate with my attire. While I was there I actually had people wanting to shake hands and asking me questions about me coming and there was one man who just stared at me and so it was uncomfortable and didn't know how to react. While I was there I started to notice that there is a little difference from the church I go to and the music was way different as well, everyone will talk back with amen or thank you Jesus. The difference
I can’t recall not being a part of New Hope Baptist Church because when I was growing up my parents attended everything and they “had us in tow”. I remember being brought to church in the winter and my parents lining us up on the seats next to the potbellied stove. We were required to take care of our “personal business” before entering because we were not allowed to walk while the services were in progress. I really have a hard time understanding why some young people today cannot sit through an entire service right now today. As children the church conferences often baffled us. While watching and listening, sometimes things got into a disagreeable mode. As children, we thought those deacons were at odds with each other, but when they
The dress code, in today’s times, is seen as strict. The men are expected to wear collared-shirts, no shorts or jeans. The women must wear dresses at least to the knee. If one breaks the dress code, they won’t be ostracized or anything of that nature. I have heard the preacher preach on how men and women should dress, I would imagine that it made some people feel awkward. In order to become a member of the church, one must be baptized by immersion. It’s usually done in a river or lake nearby. On Sunday’s Sunday school starts around 9:45, there’s a dismissal at 10:50 and the Sunday service starts at 11 o’clock. We go back to church for the 6 o’clock pm service and again on Wednesday at 7:30 pm. There are separate prayer meetings for men and women before the Sunday service and an altar call after every service. Members are expected to give a 10% tithe to the church each Sunday. The Bible is the King James Version and we follow the Ten Commandments. No decisions are made without being brought before the congregation at a business meeting. Also, one doesn’t ask for a church role, the pastor will assign them or be voted in. If asked, the pastor might not consider
