Many Baptist churches use older hymns in their services such as many of the Gospel revival songs written during the Ira Sankey period. Some less traditional churches use choruses and more contemporary worship songs, which are very similar to those used in a Pentecostal church.

Another answer:

There is not a lot of difference. Different churches have different styles of music, even though they all can be the same denomination. The main differences would be songs that share, or do not share, in doctrine. A song like, "Nothing But The Blood of Jesus" could be played in any Protestant church. But a song like "Holy Ghost Power" singing about the baptism of the Holy Ghost, would not be heard in the Baptist churches.

So the songs will be doctrinally different, but more often will share more songs than not.

Well, it depends on the individual church. Some Baptist churches sing the same songs as most Pentecostal churches (except for songs that talk about Holy Spirit baptism--unless it's a Charismatic Baptist church). And, some non-Pentecostal churches don't sing songs about the blood of Christ. Other than that, in general, the songs are about the same.

Mainly their understanding of baptism. Certainly there are some major polity differences. Methodist are episcopal and have a chain of command outside of the local church. Baptists are congregational and so each baptist church runs their own church. Depending on the baptist church there are sometimes difference in belief on free will and predestination.

The major difference is the view of baptism. A baptist church holds that once a person is saved or "born again" then they are to receive the ordinance of baptism. The Church of Christ believes that one is saved by the ordinance of baptism when it is accompanied with faith. For the Church of Christ baptism is regenerational. For the Baptist Church baptism is symbolic. Both reject infant baptism.
