Southern Baptist Churches Adopting New Names to Shed Historical Baggage

After 87 years, the University Baptist Church of Coral Gables, Fla., recently shed its name for something it felt was more forward looking: Christ Journey.

It was following the lead of First Baptist Church of Perrine, Fla., which dropped the name it had held for 89 years in favor of Christ Fellowship.

Coral Baptist Church of Coral Springs, Fla., relaunched itself in 2006 as Church By the Glades.

You have the nerve to talk of intelligence you mindless troll!

You fill this board with idiotic nonsensical matter, never engage with Scripture and then congratulate yourself for representing God worthily?!

In all the years that I have been here I have not seen a single expletive, and yet you've repeated this accusation more than once. Care yo produce any evidence?

As for disparagement, you deserve to be disparaged for your idiotic postings. As for name calling, I'm glad I didn't have to name call. You filled in the blank yourself stupid

Ouch...who do you think this is?

Once again the Bapty response method example seen above. As per usual if you haven't got the intelligence to respond then use name calling, disparagement and expletives.
Sadly this is by some who would call themselves Christian.
May God have mercy on your soul.

You should change your moniker to "Stiff necked mindless errorist"!

Consider the damage is already done from the SBC "Great Commission Baptist" vote of 2012. These churches are fleeing both 'southern' & 'baptist' because of the lingering images from years past as well as today

"Their restlessness isn’t new. The 168-year-old Southern Baptist Convention — the country’s largest Protestant denomination with some 46,000 cooperating U.S. churches and over 4,800 field personnel worldwide — was asked to consider changing its name at least seven times between 1965 and 2004, said spokesman Roger Oldham."
Aaawwww poor Bapty's are all confused about "baptism"
Haven't I been telling y'all about that for months?
Hows about this for the Baptist denomination....
"""Association of churches who reject the Covenant of God, reject His command to include their seed and all because they yearn for deep water dunking and an arminian style verbal validation ceremony"""
Alternatively you could always return to the Scripture teaching and doctrine, and the terms of the Covenant of Grace as Abraham was instructed by the Lord.

The doctrine baptist is too hard for many. Better to discard and become "First Possum Trot, Kentucky" and "Second Possum Trot, Kentucky." No fuzz on the ball there.

This is an excellent trend. I pray every lukewarm "baptist" church gets rid of the name "baptist".
