Both Catholics and Baptists believe God created the world and heaven and hell. Both believe in the Fall of man from Adam’s sin, for which death is the punishment. Both believe all people are born in sin. Both believe Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died for our sins and was resurrected so we can be redeemed. Both Catholics and Baptists believe Jesus will return from heaven in the Second Coming, that all the dead will rise again. Both believe in the Trinity– that God exists in the form of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit and that the Holy Spirit indwells and guides believers.
Brief history of the Catholic Church
Catholics say their history goes back to Jesus’ disciples. They say Peter was the first bishop of Rome, succeeded by Linus as Bishop of Rome in AD 67, who was succeeded by Clement in AD 88. Catholics believe that the line of leadership followed Peter, Linus, and Clement up to the present-day Pope in Rome. This is known as the apostolic line of succession. In 325 AD, the Council of Nicaea, among other things, attempted to structure church leadership around the model Rome used in its world empi...
Some Catholic distinctives
1. The worldwide church is ruled by local bishops who have the pope as their head. (“Catholic” comes from the Greek word meaning “universal”). 2. Catholics go to their priest to confess sins and receive “absolution.” The priest will often assign a “penance” to help internalize repentance and forgiveness – such as saying a certain prayer, like repeating the “Hail Mary” prayer or doing kind acts for someone they sinned against. 3. Catholics venerate the saints (those who led lives of heroic vir...
Brief history of baptists
In 1517, the Catholic monk Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses criticizing some Roman Catholic practices and teachings. He believed the pope could notforgive sins, that salvation came by faith alone (instead of faith and works, as taught by Catholics), and that the Bible was the only authority for belief. Luther’s teachings led to many people leaving the Roman Catholic church to form several Protestant denominations. In the mid 1600’s, some Protestant Christians, who became known as Baptists,...
Some Baptist distinctives
1. Each church is autonomous, with no hierarchy of authority over local churches and regions. 2. Baptists believe in the priesthood of the believer, confessing sins directly to God (although they can also confess sins to other Christians or to their pastor), without needing a human mediator to extend forgiveness. 3. Baptists honor Mary and important Christian leaders throughout history, but they don’t pray to (or through) them. Baptists believe Jesus is their only mediator (“For there is one...
Catholics view of salvation
Historically, Catholics believe salvation is aprocessthat begins by baptism and continues by cooperating with grace through faith, good works, and participating in the sacraments of the Church. They don’t believe we are fully righteous in the sight of God at the moment of salvation. Recently, some Catholics have shifted their doctrine regarding salvation. Two prominent Catholic theologians, Father R. J. Neuhaus and Michael Novak, collaborated with Protestants in 1998 to make a “Gift of Salvat...
Baptists view of salvation
Baptists believe salvation comes onlythrough faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection for our sins. (“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved” Acts 16:31) To be saved, you must realize you are a sinner, repent of your sins, believe that Jesus died and rose again for your sins, and receive Jesus as your Savior. (“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart you believe and are justifi...
The Catholic church teaches that “faith without works is dead” (James 2:26), because good works perfect faith (James 2:22). They believe baptism begins the Christian life, and as the person receives the sacraments, that his or her faith is perfected or matured and the person becomes more righteous. The 1563 Council of Trent, which Catholics hold as infallible, says, “If any one saith, that the sacraments of the New Law are not necessary unto salvation, but superfluous; and that, without them, or without the desire thereof, men obtain of God, through faith alone, the grace of justification; though all (the sacraments) are not indeed necessary for every individual; let him be anathema (excommunicated).” Baptists believe that we are saved by faith alone, but good works are an outward expression of the spiritual life. Only faith saves, but good works are the natural consequence of salvation and walking in the Spirit.
For Catholics, sacraments are religious rites that are signs and channels of God’s grace to those who receive them. The Catholic church has seven sacraments.
Sacraments of initiation into the church:
1. Baptism: usually babies, but older children and adults are also baptized. Baptism is necessary for salvation: it initiates into the Catholic church and is done by pouring water three times over the head. Catholics believe baptism purifies, justifies, and sanctifies the sinner, and the Holy Spirit indwells a person at their baptism. 2. Confirmation: around seven years old, Catholic children are “confirmed” to complete the process of initiation into the church. Children go through classes to...
Sacraments of healing:
1. Penance (or Reconciliation) includes 1) contrition or remorse for sins, 2) confessions of sins to a priest, 3) absolution (forgiveness), and penance (rote prayers or certain actions like returning stolen goods). 2. Anointing of the Sickused to only be given to people just before they died (Last Rites or Extreme Unction). Now those in danger of death from serious illness, injury, or old age can receive anointing with oil and prayer for recovery.
Both Catholics and Baptists believe that the Bible is verbally inspired by God and is infallible. However, Catholics have three distinct differences from Baptists regarding the Bible: 1. What’s in the Bible?Catholics have seven books (the Apocrypha) that are not in the Bibles that most Protestants use: 1 and 2 Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Sirach, Wisdom, and Baruch. When the reformer Martin Luther translated the Bible into German, he decided to follow the decision of the Jewish Council of Jamnia in AD 90 to not include those books in their canon. Other Protestants followed his lead with the King James Bible and more modern translations. 1. Is the Bible the only authority? Baptists (and most Protestants) believe only the Bibledetermines faith and practice. Catholics base their beliefs on the Bibleandtraditions and teachings of the church. They feel the Bible alone cannot provide certainty about all revealed truth, and that “Sacred Tradition” handed down by church leaders over the ages m...

Catholics Roman Catholics have a hierarchy, with the Pope as the top leader of all Catholic churches in the world. Under him is the college of cardinals, followed by archbishops governing regions around the world. Answering to them are local bishops, who are over the parish priests of the churches in each community (parish). All leaders from priests up to pope must be unmarried and celibate. Local churches follow the leadership of their priest (or priests) and the bishop of their diocese (area). Each church has “commissions” (like committees) that focus on the church’s life and mission – such as Christian Education, Faith Formation, and Stewardship. Baptists Local Baptist churches are independent. They may belong to an association – like the Southern Baptist Convention – but mainly to pool resources for missions and other endeavors. Baptists follow a congregationalform of government; national, state, or local conventions/associations have no administrative control over local churche...
