What are the beliefs in Baptist churches?

As a lifelong Baptist, I'll try to help answer this question: Baptists believe that Jesus is the Savior. Baptists believe that Jesus is God's Son. Baptists believe that Jesus died for our sins and made atonement for them so that we are free from the fear of eternal death (in hell) as long as we give our lives to Jesus and accept Him as our Savior. Read John 3:16 in the Bible. Most Baptists believe that once you are "saved" (have given your life to God) then you are always saved. Baptists believe that everyone is a sinner and can only be saved by the grace and mercy of our Savior Jesus, who laid down His life for us on the cross. These are the beliefs I hold as a Baptist Christian, but you can do a more thorough search and look at the About Us pages of several Baptist church websites to get a feel for what they believe. Note: Beware the Landover Baptist website. It is apparently a spoof (at least I would hope so!)
