Baptists form a major branch of Protestantism distinguished by baptizing professing believers only (believer's baptism, as opposed to infant baptism), and doing so by complete immersion (as opposed to affusion or aspersion).Baptist churches also generally subscribe to the doctrines of soul competency (the responsibility and accountability of every person before God), sola fide.

Grudem writes, “The pastor of the church will be one of the elders in the session, equal in authority to the other elders.”[3] The elders of the session run their local church, and some are also members of the presbytery, which governs over the larger church.

That is, the presbytery is a group of governing elders who make decisions for all. To all our Members & Friends.
