The title 'First Baptist' is assigned to the literal 'first' baptist church established in the area.

Southern Baptist is a denomination. There are many Baptist denominations. As such a Southern Baptist church CAN be called "First Baptist" if they were the first Baptist church in the town. However, the First Baptist Church in the denomination could be a different Baptist denomination.

1st Baptist churches are not a separate denomination they are the first Baptist church that was established in a certain town or city. Most 1st Baptist churches are southern Baptist (although outside of the south this is not always true). As Southern Baptist churches most 1st Baptist church believe in the basic tenants of the Southern Baptist Convention as laid out in the Baptist Faith and Message.

Possibly, but 1st Baptist is just the name of a local church. They may or may not belong to the Southern Baptist Association. They may be an independent church.

Nothing, a church being called first baptist means that it was the first baptist church founded in that towns history. Second Baptist would mean that it was the next to be started after the first baptist church. Most of the baptist that would be second baptist took other names so there aren't many churches named second baptist church out there. Richmond, VA has a sixth bpatist church...perhaps they took it a little bit to far.

Missionary Baptist Churches do not believe in denominations or the invisible governance of another higher organization. They believe that the management of the churches should be independent of each other and therefore visible. Churches of these kind trace back their church authority through the chain of churches to the early Christian churches of the first century.Southern Baptist churches are churches linked to the Southern Baptist Convention, an organization of churches and pastors who plant new churches and manage them through the local convention mission.. therefore each church organized are not independent in local management. There is also a question here of church authority which could not be traced back to the early Christians because said authority stops at the convention.

I was raised Mormon I have attended Baptist church many years. In the last year I have been attending the First Church of the Nazarene. I trusted Christ as my savior many years ago. I do see some differences between Baptist and Nazarene. I believe Christ is my savior, and once saved always saved. So far, I don't see a strong difference between Christian and Methodist.
