Actually, they do, just not as a general habit. Typically, Baptists refer to God by the generic God. Baptists use pretty much all the names of God.

Who is the god of Jehovah's Witnesses?

Since Jehovah's Witnesses believe in the Bible, they believe that God Almighty is Jehovah. For instance Psalm 83:18 (KJ version) reads: "That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth." Jehovah is God's personal name. He is the Creator of Heaven and Earth. Jehovah's Witnesses believe this. The God of Jehovah's Witnesses is just as their name says: -- Jehovah. That's what the apostrophe 's' means: -- belonging to Jehovah. They belong to Jehovah God. We do NOT worship Jesus. We worship Jesus Father, whose name is Jehovah. We do NOT worship 3 gods, as in the trinity. We view that as a false pagan god, with only some Bible names smacked on that god; to make it appear as if he's the god of the Bible. Most people call that 'mainstream Christianity'. But we are not trying to become 'mainstream'. Some people call us a 'cult'. But we don't pay attention to that. They are just jealous, because they can't match our teaching methods, and abilities; so they resort to name-calling. Jehovah God protects us from damage from them. Jehovah God is very very powerful; but he would NEVER torment anyone. That's the trinity god that does that.
