With the news of a mass shooting in Las Vegas, many people have wondered whether or not the best place to go to church is a Baptist church or a Presbyterian church.
However, the answers might not be quite so simple.
A new study, conducted by researchers at The Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, found that not only are Baptist churches different in terms of doctrine, but also in terms in which they engage their congregations.
The study found that while both Baptists and Presbyterians believe in God, there are different ways that Baptists will go about meeting their needs.
As an example, while Baptist churches often offer Bible study, some also offer Bible reading or Bible study groups.
Some Baptist churches also offer a more formal form of worship, such as services with the singing of hymns.
However the study also found that there are differences between Baptist churches that are similar in terms with their congregational structure, such that Presbyterian churches have more formal worship and are more likely to offer Bible learning programs.
