Default Catholic converts to Baptists

Ron

I see an advt in local paper inviting everyone to attend a prayer service at a local Baptist church tomorrow evening where two Baptists (advertised as former Catholics) will be speaking.

I feel inclined to attend and defend our faith - especially in case any weak Catholics should turn up

Does our church allow me to attend.
If I attend, am I allowed to pray with them.

I know nothing of the Baptist church.
Can you help me with where they differ from the Catholic faith.

thank you
jbbt9

I don't think you should attend. I really don't know much about what distinguishes Baptists from other Protestants.

well baptists believe that baptism is not necessary for salvation and baptisms happen only once the individual is old enough to understand his or her commitment to God. Beyond that, individual baptist groups share little. They can be Calvinistic (no free will) and Arminian (absolute free will) , their political views can go from fairly liberal like jimmy carter to people like Jack chick and Fred Phelps
