I'm not ashamed, though some might think I should be

Last month the Indonesian Baptist Church asked me to talk with them about our Baptist distinctives.  Over the last twenty-plus years there has been a trend away from identifying oneself as Baptist so I was honored to be given this assignment.  As I prepared I realized once again that I'm not ashamed to be a Baptist and I think I need to say so.

Two things set us apart as Baptists.  While they are not unique or exclusive to Baptists, combined they make us who we are.
